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.
