Family and friends celebrate the life of Bradley Bernard Gordon, 29, who was born November 28, 1986 in Oxford, Mississippi. Bradley submitted to the Lord’s will and passed away quietly on Monday, March 14, 2016, at the Arkansas Heart Hospital.
Although Bradley, lovingly known as Brad, was very quiet and private, he was loved by all. His shy demeanor captured the hearts of his coworkers and children with whom he worked. His heart matched the size of his statue. Everyone whom Brad came into contact with felt the love he exuberated. He was truly a special gift given to us and will be dearly missed.
Bradley was raised in a loving home, where the foundations of Christianity were taught daily. The seed of Christianity took root on December 3, 2000 when he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. He was baptized at St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Bishop Steven Arnold.
Bradley graduated from the historical Little Rock Central High School in 2005. He attended the University of Central Arkansas from 2005 until 2009, where he played football as an offensive lineman.
