BRADLEY: Robert “Bob” Allen Bradley passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Friday, March 1, 2019 at the age of 80 years. Bob was born on the family farm in Hazelcliffe, Saskatchewan on September 26, 1938. He received his primary education at the local one-room school. Bob completed high school at Balfour Technical School in Regina prior to attending the University of Saskatchewan where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, specializing in soil science, in 1962. His career spanned 40 years. Positions included: Soil Specialist and Extension Agronomist with the Government of Manitoba, Soil Management Specialist with the Tanzania Canada Wheat Project, and Area Soil Conservationist with PFRA - Agriculture Canada. Bob took part in an agricultural work exchange in Western Australia prior to his retirement in 1998. He was instrumental in establishing the Manitoba-North Dakota Zero Tillage Association and was active on the board and the executive for many years. Bob was inducted into the Soil Conservation Council of Canada Hall of Fame in 2006 for his outstanding commitment to soil conservation in Canada. Bob met Faye in Brandon. They married in 1972. Together they raised their two children. Bob's interest in travel took him and the family around the world. He loved seeing new places and meeting new people. Many summers were enjoyed at the cabin that Bob built at Kenosee Lake. He liked entertaining. Most who knew him will have memories of Bob's passion for playing the accordion and polka music. Bob leaves to mourn his wife Faye; daughter Charla; son Clayton (Lorraine); and his grandson Oliver; as well as his sister Irene (Delbert, deceased); and his brothers Rae (Marie), Lorne (Sheila), and Lyle (Elaine). He will also be fondly remembered by his in-laws, several nieces and nephews and a host of long-time friends. Bob was predeceased by his father Wilbert, his mother Alice and his sister Marie (Allen). We will celebrate Bob and his life well-lived in the spring. Donations in memory of Bob can be made to the ALS Society of Manitoba: 2A, 1717 Dublin Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3H 0H2.
A Polka Lover’s Prayer
Lord, I love to do the PolkaThe happy music can’t be beatWhen I hear the snappy rhythmWings seem to grow upon my feet.When my time here is up,They can play a PolkaNo sad organ music for meAnd I’ll come dancing Lord to thee.~Amen
