Robert Gene Bradley (Bob or Bobby) age 67 of Persia, IA passed away in his home on April 28, 2023.
Bob was born on May 8, 1955, in Council Bluffs, IA and graduated from Tri-Center in 1973. Bob lived in the Persia area his whole life. Throughout Bob’s life he farmed, worked for Delta, Kevin Ring Bulldozing and Tommy Gate, where he retired in 2020.
Bob loved taking his boys to pull his Super M at local tractor pulls, watching NASCAR, NFL football and of course spending time with friends and family in the shed. Bob was known by many as someone you could count on for lending a helping hand in and around the shop, willingness to teach, helping people in the community and always shared a good laugh while doing it. Most importantly, you can’t forget those quick witted one liners and skills on the dance floor.
