Thomas "Tom" Miller Bradberry, Sr., 87, resident of 368 Bulls Horne Rd. Nation Community, husband of Mavolyn Hall Bradberry, passed away Friday Oct. 3, 2014 at his home with his loving family by his side.

Born May 28, 1927 in Abbeville Co. SC, he was a son of the late W.J. "Moot" Bradberry and Martha Elberta Nelson Bradberry.

Mavolyn & Tommy & Sandra and FamilySo sorry to learn of Tom's death. He is in a better place.I remember Tom and all the coon hunts and the stories with him and Woot and Harry and the ole gang. They are all up in heaven. Tom was always so good to me and my family and was the first person to help anyone at anytime. I will always be grateful for the times............He helped Evelyn and my Late Father helping search for my Dad who had wandered off into the woods. Tom always had such a calm demeanor helped so many people in so ways.He will be missed and I'm so sorry I didn't know of his passing till looking at the Funeral Home website.

Mavolyn and family I am saddened to hear of Tom's passing. I remember coming to your home with Dick and Carolyn and playing with Sandra and Tommy when we were kids. I remember being on a deer hunt and ran across Tom and others hunting rabbits. We took a short break and enjoyed a pork and bean sandwich. We will remember you in our prayers.
