Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

John “Johnny or JB” Leonard Bradley, age 67

John “Johnny or JB” Leonard Bradley, loving husband and father passed away at home on Friday, January 24, 2020 at the age of 67.

Johnny was born at the family home in Scotland, Arkansas on September 24, 1952 to Howard and Annice (Hensley) Bradley.  Johnny was a 1970 graduate of Shirley High School, where after graduation he joined the United States Army and specialized in communication while serving in Germany.  On May 22, 1998, he married his best friend Jeanie Bourgoin in Eureka Springs.  They have four children, Heather Bradley, Andrea Bradley, Jade Pinard and Jimmy Clauer; 12 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. 

Johnny led the life of a full fledge “Southern Country Boy”, growing up on the creek, fishing, hunting squirrels and always making the most out of the simple life. He knew vehicles in and out and enjoyed being a mechanic and he was good at it; if anyone needed a part or work done, they knew where to go.

Johnny loved to scrap so there wasn’t much you couldn’t find at his shop.  The dirt roads were his home away from home and he knew them all.  Johnny never knew a stranger, and was always willing to help a friend. 

Johnny was preceded in death by his parents Howard and Annice; his siblings Loretta, Arthur, Barbara, Larry, Jerry, Reva, Jimmy and Charlie.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 11:00 am at the Full Gospel Tabernacle, Highway 110, Shirley, Arkansas.  The church will provide a fellowship meal and refreshments following the service, everyone is welcome to join the family at Settlement Cemetery, Shirley, Arkansas at 1:30 P.M. with the United States Military Honor Corp. for graveside services.

Arrangements have been entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas.
