Glenn Clifton Bradley passed away on Monday evening, October 1, two weeks before his 89th birthday, after a valiant three-month fight to recover from a stroke. His funeral service will be held on Friday, October 5, 2018 in Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church, 302 Hibben Street, Mt. Pleasant at 11:00 am. Interment will follow in Mount Pleasant Memorial Gardens, 1308 Mathis Ferry Road, Mt. Pleasant. The family will receive friends in J. HENRY STUHR, INC., MOUNT PLEASANT CHAPEL, 1494 Mathis Ferry Road, Mt. Pleasant on Thursday, October 4, 2018 from 5:00 until 7:00 pm.

Born on October 15, 1929 in Ely, Nevada, Glenn was raised both in Ely and Las Vegas. He was the first child of Natheen ("Teen") and Irene Fields Bradley, elder brother of Ken and Shirley, all preceding him in death. Glenn was proud of being a "desert rat", an admitted fun-loving, mischievous teenager, but a dutiful son, hard worker, and good student. He attended Utah State University under an ROTC scholarship, and on graduation with his Engineering degree entered the Air Force. While stationed in Charleston, he met his future wife and love of his life, Jane Langdale. After returning from deployment in Japan and Korea toward the end of the Korean War and receiving his discharge, Glenn married Jane in 1956 and they began a long and loving life together, first in Florida, then Charleston, raising two sons, Dan and James, in a joyful, loving household. He was a man of many interests and abilities, a do-it-yourselfer of the first order, an avid golfer, sportscar enthusiast, sailor, skier, old-house restorer, traits he passed on to his boys, along with his sense of humor and fascination with making things work - a fun, lively, imaginative husband and father. Glenn retired in 1992 from a career as a civilian employee of the U.S. Navy, utilizing his college training as a civil engineer. In retirement he played golf and traveled the world with Jane. In later years he became a committed volunteer with Hope House and the I-Beam reading program, and turned a lifelong interest in the game of bridge into an everyday activity after his legs became too weak to permit golf. Glenn had to say goodbye to his dear Jane in 2002, and is now happy to be reunited with her.

He is loved and missed dearly by his son, daughter-in-law J.K., grandsons Zeke, and Lucas, sister-in-law Elaine Bradley, nieces and nephews, and many, many friends whom he touched throughout his long life and active membership at Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church.
