James Kenneth Bradfield


James Kenneth Bradfield (known affectionately as Kenny) died on Saturday, January 5th, sitting beside his loving wife.  He died from the heart disease which afflicted him for 36 years, but no longer. He honorably served in the US National Guard and was the first Bradfield to graduate from high school. Kenny worked as a printer and most recently as a truck driver, but he will be remembered by most as an avid outdoorsman, handyman, and hunter. In 1998, he converted to Catholicism and worked tirelessly- until his passing- with RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) to bring people to the faith. He is now reunited with his beloved mother, father, father & mother-in-law, sister, uncles, and friends.  

He is survived by his wife of nearly 40 years-Helen-, his daughter- Erin-, his sons-Kenny, Matthew & Daniel-, his daughters-in-law-Cara & Jackie-, & everyone whose life he brightened. He will be remembered by his friends and family as a loving husband, devoted father, caring friend,  and proud Southern Gentleman. While he lived in Florida, he always considered Virginia his homeland.

The family will be receiving friends from 6:00 until 8:00 pm  (wake service at 7:00 pm) on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at Dobbs Funeral Home. The funeral mass will beheld at 8:30 am on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at Holy Family Catholic Church, followed by interment at Woodlawn Memorial Park Cemetery.

I would like to send these words of consolation to those that loved this apostle Paul said what has been made possible by Jesus’ resurrection. “Since death is through a man,” said Paul, “resurrection of the dead is also through a man.” Because of the sin and imperfection passed on to us from Adam, we all die. However, by giving his perfect human life as a ransom, Jesus opened the way for mankind to be released from slavery to sin and death through the resurrection. Summing up the matter nicely, Paul wrote at Romans 6:23: “The wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.” 

Agape Love

I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. May GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

Ken is an amazing man! A true dedication to Our Lady. May he soar on Eagles's 🦅 wings and be the intercessor for your family. May Ken's suffering on earth be used for the glory of God and may he now rest in paradise. (John 11:3,4) ; (Revelation 21: 3,4)
