Obituary of Arthur "Art" Joseph Bradbury
Arthur 'Art' Joseph Bradbury, age 74, of Darien, Illinois passed away on Friday, July 29th, 2022. Art was born June 5, 1948. Former resident of Berwyn and Westchester, Art was born in Oak Park to his parents Charles and LaVerne [nee Petrie] Bradbury. Art is survived by his loving wife Suzanne Yvonne Bradbury [nee Benes], his cherished children; Faith, Hope, and Charles (Angie), his favorite and only sister; Pat (Ken) Belt, his beloved niece; Dawn Davis, his adoring nephews; Corey (Lara) and Kevin Belt, and his dear great niece and nephews; Xavier, Zoe, and Tristan Davis. Art was also a treasured “grandpaw” to many fur babies. Art grew up running the streets with his lifelong friends in Berwyn and graduated from Morton West High School. He was a diligent employee who worked at AT&T for 37 years and a dedicated stay at home dad who only forgot his children a few times. He was an avid storyteller who loved to learn not only about his own Irish-Scottish heritage, but history in general. He could bend the ear of strangers and friends, remembering all the little details of his family history. He was a diehard sports fan who spent decades cheering for “Da Bears”. Art had many loves; Diet Coke, Guinness, potato chips and pretzels, pizza, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, old Westerns, crime TV shows, dogs and cats, soldiers and military history… and stuff like that. But nothing could compare to his love for his family and friends who he cherished above all else. A visitation for Art will be held Wednesday, August 3rd from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Mount Auburn Funeral Home, 4101 South Oak Park Ave, Stickney, IL 60402. A funeral mass will occur Thursday, August 4th, 2022 from 09:30 AM at St. Odilo Catholic Church, 2244 East Ave, Berwyn, IL 60402. A graveside service will follow at Mount Auburn Cemetery. Because Art just wasn’t a flowers kind of guy, the family requests monetary donations in lieu of flower arrangements. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Bradbury family.
