|Apache Junction, AZ — Albert Allan (Bradley) Conner, age 64, succumbed to injuries sustained in a fire at his residence in Apache Junction on Tuesday, May 18th. Al was born in Columbus, Ohio on July 28, 1957, to the late Carl Bradley, Sr. and the late Marilyn Conner. Al joined the U.S. Army, 101st Airborne Div., at the age of 18 to pursue his dream of becoming a paratrooper. Unfortunately, his time served was cut short due to an injury in ‘jump school’. He joined his stepfather’s construction business, Ken Conner & Sons, in Columbus, and worked with him until the business was dissolved. Al relocated to Arizona. His greatest enjoyment was riding his Harley Davidson throughout the Southwest and across country with his many friends in the Phoenix-Mesa area.
Al is survived by brothers Carl (Carol) Bradley, Jr.; Donald (Melinda) Bradley; Michael (Cathy) Conner; his Uncle Arthur ‘Bus’ (Dee) Bradley, Aunt Diane D’Epifanio (Jim Savage), several stepsisters, stepbrothers, nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and stepparents, nephew Christopher Bradley, stepsisters Joyce Conner and Karen Staton, and many beloved Aunts and Uncles. A memorial service for area friends will be held at Mariposa Gardens Memorial Park on Thursday, June 3rd at 6 p.m. with a time of food & fellowship immediately following at the Park hall. A private, graveside service for the family will be held June 19th at the Kirkersville Cemetery in Kirkersville, Ohio. Chaplain Carl Bradley, Jr. will be presiding over both memorial services for his brother.
