Richard Carlisle Bradley passed away Dec. 22, 2009 in Grand County, Utah in an automobile accident.
He was born on Jan. 11, 1935 in Colorado Springs, Colo. to Leo E. Bradley and Lois Irene Fields. He graduated from Venice High School in Venice Beach, Calif., and then attended Santa Monica Community College.
In 1952, before the Alcan Highway was even paved, the family moved to Anchorage, Alaska. There, he studied civil engineering at the University of Alaska at Fairbanks and became a surveyor.
While skiing at Girdwood, Alaska, he met and later married Millan Ornling, a Swedish immigrant. Together, they had two sons, Chris and Timothy.
Richard later moved to Los Angeles and began a long career as head carpenter in the movie industry. This job allowed him to travel the world constructing movie sets. After his retirement eight years ago, he moved to Moab. Here, he was known for traveling in his VW bus with his faithful dog, Molly.
He was very loyal to his family, whom he visited often and was always willing to help.
Cremation has taken place and no services are scheduled.
