David Bradley, 33, passed away on November 14, 2020. He was born on May 24, 1987 in Conway, Arkansas to Danny and Becky (Riley) Bradley. He was the husband of Keleigh (Reiss) Bradley for 10 1/2 years. David was an avid Razorback and Cardinals fan. He excelled in athletics and began playing sports at a young age which continued throughout high school at Greenbrier High School. After graduation, he attended the U of A and graduated in 2013 with a degree in Kinesiology and then went on to receive his Master’s degree in special education. David was a very special person with many talents. He was a natural people person and was able to bring a smile to every face he met. David had a natural infectious smile and a radiant personality. Without fail, at the end of every single school year, he would receive emails or letters from grateful parents of students whose lives he had touched in so many meaningful ways. He loved playing pranks and joking around with those he adored. He was an excellent special and general education teacher, and he also fulfilled his dream of coaching football. David coached the 9th grade football team at BHS, and also at Lincoln Jr. High, until 2019 when he was no longer able to due to his illness. David was an all-around country boy who loved to hunt, be in the outdoors, float, and anything else that got him outside. Additionally, he travelled world-wide with his wife, Keleigh, and was able to experience amazing adventures in exotic places. Although he loved being at home and did not particularly enjoy flying on planes, he did love planning the trips and thoroughly enjoyed the experiences once he arrived at his destinations. His beautiful smile, quick wit, and playful demeanor will live in our hearts forever. While David was physically a tower of strength, he exuded a level of grace, patience, and quiet guidance that motivated all that knew him. David was everyone’s rock in a sea of storm. He will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. Survived by his wife, Keleigh of Bentonville; parents, Danny and Becky of Conway; grandfather, Charles Bradley of Atkins; sisters, Katerra (Mike) Westfall and Alicia (Jason) Andrews; two nieces, Brianna Westfall and Ava Andrews; nephew, Ethan Andrews; in-laws, Raymond and Deborah Reiss of Bella Vista; and numerous extended family and friends. His visitation will be Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at Callison-Lough from 3 until 7pm. A Celebration of Life is Thursday at 10am at the Bentonville Church of Christ. Burial will follow in Greenbriar, Arkansas at Thorn Cemetery at 3pm.

Bradley family, you’ve always been special to me. It has never been doubted how much you loved each other, but getting to watch you all make memories and care for David over the last 2 years, has been an honor. To that sweet little brother of my friend that was never a pest, you’ll be missed David ❤️

Coach Bradley lived life with a Warrior mentality, putting on display for all to see - "God Gives His Toughest Battles to His Strongest Warriors". He impacted a community with his servant leadership as a teacher, coach and friend. Tiger Nation is praying and thinking of the family today and in the days ahead.

David Bradley was one of the good ones. As a counselor at LJHS, I could count on him to help our students any time...any day. His sense of humor, passion for the kiddos, and good nature made him an exceptional teacher and coach.
God Bless his family.

Coach Bradley was one of the first faces I saw when I began 9th grade football. The excitement he brought to every single practice was one of the things that I will remember for the rest of my life. The most memorable thing about coach though, was that he always knew my name. This may not seem like a huge deal but for me at the time, he was someone I knew I could count on because he knew my name from the first day on, never failing to say “hey Andrew” in the halls or out on the field. He always put others first, was present and intentional in every way, and was a role model for how we should all face trials. He will be missed, and I pray for his family that they would receive peace and wisdom in these times. Mrs. Bradley, your husband was a role model to hundreds of young men, showing them what a Man in this world should look like, and I pray that one day you two will meet again in heaven without pain and illness, and in the full Joy of the Lord.
