Bradley Buckley was born from the union of Erica Nicholas and Brian Buckley on December 22, 1987.
At an early age, Bradley accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior. While here with us, Bradley attended DuBois Elementary School and Christian Fenger Academy High School where he earned his high school diploma in 2006.
Bradley was one of six siblings, and although he wasn’t born first, he often acted like the eldest child. However, no matter how well he took care of himself and everyone else, he was always his Mother’s “baby boy”. Bradley was a natural protector and caretaker to all. He especially looked after the women in his family, making sure they were all respected and treated like they were special. He is often described as “the type of person that would give you the shirt off of his back”. A family member never walked away from him without knowing they were loved. Bradley extended his love and care from his family and into his community. He regularly hosted back to school events, holiday and block parties with free supplies and food to all who attended.
Bradley was also a dedicated father to his children. He went to great lengths to provide their every need and dedicated time for activities and to create memories they both will cherish forever. Bradley received a Parent of the year award from his son school for being a hands-on parent and participating in all school activities and fundraisers. Bradley was a beloved uncle as he cherished his nieces and nephews like his own children. It was his personal mission as a man, he made sure to give his nephews hugs and kisses, so they knew it was okay to be loving and affectionate.
Bradley was the life of the party but still as humble as could be. Every time you saw him, he flashed his big, beautiful smile. He loved to dress in the latest fashions, travel and spend time with his family. Bradley was the type of person that everyone wanted to be around. He had a great sense of humor; he was confident and very generous. Bradley was the best friend, favorite uncle, favorite cousin, and man of the family all in one.
On December 27th, 2023 Bradley transitioned to his heavenly home with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is preceded in death by his grandmothers: Brenda Nicholas, and Loretta Buckley, Cousin: Carlton Buckley, Uncle: Charles Buckley, Stepfather: Darryl Bunch and Nephew: Brandon Buckley Jr.
Bradley is survived by his beloved parents: Erica Nicholas and Brian Buckley, Grandfather Charles Buckley Sr., his son: Bradley Jr. (Mariah); and His daughter: Amelia (Misa); sisters: Brittany (Jason); Brianna (Jeremy); Brandi (Charles); and Kyla, brothers: Bryant (Peaches) Brandon, Darius and One Brother/Cousin: Darnell /Sparks (Iesha); 13 nieces and nephews: Aunts: Kelly (Everette); Lillian, Latrice, and Lashon, 3 Godchildren: Roman Jr, Gotti and Kelsey, Best-friends: Roman, Fave, Toni and a host of other Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends and family who love and miss him dearly.
