Bill was born in Dublin to parents, Emmett Scott Bradley and Lula Loretta "Lou" (Williams) Bradley.
At the age of 19 he served in the United States Navy near the end of WWII, and then returned to his hometown of Dublin. While working the family farm raising registered Holstein cattle with his father, Bill enjoyed a career in rodeo, competing in Tie Down Calf Roping as well as working as flagger and judge for many rodeos, including the famous Colburn Rodeo Bowl in Dublin.
At one of the rodeos she met Bobbie Jean Williams, who he later married on Dec. 6, 1958. They made a home in Dublin operating a successful dairy farm and raising Quarter Horse race horses, and raised two daughters, Terri and Luann, both of whom continued the family rodeo legacy.
Bill attended the Double N Cowboy Church with wife Bobbie, where he blessed the lives of everyone who knew him.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Scott and Lou Bradley; one brother, Emmett Bradley; and two sisters, Dortha Jurney and Peggy Jurney.
