John (Jack) Bradbury
Life-long resident of Edgewater, Colorado, passed away peacefully November 27, 2016. Jack was born December 13, 1919 to Arthur John Bradbury and Mary Ina Kasson. He attended Edgewater High School where he met his future wife, Josephine Duffy. They were married May 8, 1940 in Littleton, Colorado. With a growing family, Jack was employed at the Remington Arms Plant, currently known as the Federal Center in Lakewood. Jack was a proud WWII veteran having enlisted in the US Navy in March 1944 and being assigned to the Asiatic Pacific Philippine campaign, serving with the LST 130-LT group 47 and USS LCT group 110. Had the Japanese not surrendered, this group had been slated for the invasion of Japan. Upon separation from the service in December 1945, he returned to Edgewater and began his apprenticeship in Sheet Metal, specifically heating and air conditioning fabrication and continued in this field until his retirement. Jack served on the Edgewater City Council from 1961-1971 and during this tenure was also appointed Mayor pro-tem. He was elected again as councilman from 1983-1985. After retirement, Jack and wife Jo traveled in their RV, mostly to the Southwest to escape the Colorado winter. They enjoyed attending Cleveland Indians spring training baseball games in Tucson and later, a few Rockies training games.
Jack is survived by John Jr (Dee), San Jose, CA; Carol Shaw, Wheat Ridge; Jim (Evelyn), Thornton; Donald (Gail), Brighton; Nanci Bradbury, Tucson, AZ; 16 grandchildren, 37 great-grandchildren and 10 great great-grandchildren plus many nieces and nephews.
Jack was predeceased by his beloved wife of 61 years, Josephine; parents AJ and Mary; brothers Allen, Arthur, Donald and sister Gertrude.
Visitation will be Sunday December 4th; 2-4 pm. Service and interment will be Monday, December 5, 1:30 pm; Highland Mortuary & Cemetery.
