OBITUARY

Bradley Burns Klicker

April 23, 1984May 12, 2020

With deepest sorrow, we announce that Bradley Burns Klicker, age 36, of Tuscaloosa, Ala., our most beloved son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, family member and friend, passed away Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at his residence. A celebration of life service will be scheduled at a later date.

He was preceded in death by grandparents, Dwight Prickett (Honey) and Fred and Helen Klicker (Pawpaw and Mimi).

Bradley will be missed everyday by his parents, Glenn and Cheryl Klicker; sister, Ashley Couch (Robert); brother, Anderson Klicker (Amber); and nieces, Lorelei, Piper, Alexis and Marlee Klicker; grandmother, Carol Prickett Taylor; aunts, Carol Plott (Geoff) and Kim Wenth (Joe), all of Tuscaloosa; uncle, John Prickett (Anita), of Chichester, N.H.; and many cousins, relatives and friends.

Bradley was born April 23, 1984 in Tuscaloosa, the middle child and oldest son of Glenn and Cheryl Klicker. He was a graduate of Central High School and the University of Alabama. He was a gifted artist and received his degree in graphic design. His first job was working in the family business at Blockbuster Video, and most recently he worked in supply/logistics at the University of Alabama Supply Store.

Bradley was the sweetest person you could ever hope to know. Everyone agrees he had a really big heart, always putting others before himself. He loved his nieces and they loved him unconditionally. He especially loved playing with them outside and helping them search for lizards and salamanders. He had a soft spot in his heart for all animals, especially cats and kittens, and took care of many strays. He has a massive comics collection, and he also liked graphic novels, comic conventions, and playing video games. His most eye opening moment was helping his mom sew his DragonCon costume, thinking sewing was fast and easy. Bradley was not one to call attention to himself, being perfectly content to be in the background and letting everyone else have the spotlight. Not only was he the sweetest boy, he was beautiful, inside and out.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter in Tuscaloosa, Ala. or Tabernacle United Methodist Church and Campground in Pickens County Alabama.

When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me

I want no rites in a gloom filled room

Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little, but not for long

And not with your head bowed low

Remember the love that once we shared

Miss me, but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take

And each must go alone.

It's all part of the master plan

A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart

Go to the friends we know.

Laugh at all the things we used to do

Miss me, but let me go.

We love you, we miss you, we remember you.

I worked at the Supe Store with Bradley for 3 years. There was never a dull moment with Bradley. Almost every morning he would eat a chic fil a biscuit with egg and buffalo sauce and I would call him weird. There was one point we both switched to diet drinks at work and he would shame me if I broke and got a regular soda. I have so many memories with Bradley and our other coworkers, I know they’ll last a lifetime. Bradley might have been my supervisor, but he was also a friend and mentor. He wasn’t afraid to tell me if I was making bad decisions, because he was always the guy you could talk to and get honest feedback. My time in college wouldn’t have been the same without him, and I will miss him dearly.

Bradley— thanks for introducing me to Rick and Morty and taking us to Babe’s Donuts on “work trips” and buying biscuits for everyone at work just because you felt like it that day. I’m sad that we won’t get to talk about conspiracy theories or argue politics quietly (“Sports and weather!!”) on this Earth again, but your kind spirit will always be remembered by all of us that had the pleasure of working with you.

I've worked with Bradley at the Supe Store for many years but grew closer to him over the last two. He had great ideas and shared them with me often. Although I don't follow comics well I tried to make every effort to connect with him in his interests, even when he wanted to show me a new tatoo. He was always so sweet to me. I'm going to miss him. Your family will be in my Prayers.

Back in 2002 (I believe) My district manager called me and asked if I had any positions available at the blockbuster video on Skyland that I was the store manager of. She proceeded to tell me this was not just anyone but one of the higher U
Ups of the company's son. Of course she added that they were to not be treated any differently than anyone else. I nervously agreed knowing we needed help and hoped I made the right decision. I am so glad I did make that decision because I was graced with the sweetest and most on point employee I ever had. I don't remember a time when he had a disagreement with a customer and it was brought to my attention. Bradley was an amazing employee and manager. I know that he made my job and my goals achievable by being on my team. I enjoyed working with you and appreciate all you gave for our crew. Bradley we miss you and your definitely not forgotten.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Bradley was one of my Awana Sparks at Emmanuel. I'm sad I didn't have a chance to know him as an adult. May the Lord comfort you.

Bradley and i met in the third grade and we couldnt stand each other. Then he moved in my neighborhood. From that point in up until jr. High he was my best friend. I remember my dad taking us to the zoo and he got but by a giant bird. I ate many dinners at the Klicker household and he at mine. I hate that we grew apart over the years and never got the chance to reconnect. He will always be missed.

Bradley's family lives in my neighborhood and he went to school with my little sister, Kylie O'Brien. They played together/ knew each other through grade school and jr high. He spent a lot of time at our house. I remember the day the 2 of them never made it home from the bus and our mothers were on phone for hours trying to find them only to discover the bus driver had taken them back to school bus parking lot/ depot with him lol. Bradley was smart and interesting and funny.
