Bradley Clark Bartlett, Jr. left this world Monday, May 3 after fighting with all his might to beat lung disease.

Born in Norway, Maine on October 27, 1957 Brad, one of seven children of Eunice and Bradley Bartlett Sr., lived his life with gusto and a permanent twinkle in his eyes.

Brad graduated from Lake Region High School in 1976 and enlisted in the Army where he served as a Medical Technician at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas. He was active in many sports and excelled at softball, motorcycle racing, and would take on anyone when it came to darts. Brad was an expert skier; he competed and won many races at Shawnee Peak & The Red Parker Pub.

His zest for life was infectious and when Brad entered a room, his energy was impossible to ignore. He’d quickly take center stage telling stories of his adventures hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, rants about the wins and losses of the New England Patriots, and his opinions on the latest NASCAR races.

A devoted husband, father, and grandfather Brad was a jack-of-all trades who could move from helping one of his kids fix a car to whipping up a BBQ meal for anyone who happened to be visiting his house.

Brad’s generosity knew no bounds and he would do whatever he could whenever he could to help his family and friends — regardless of the need or request. When Brad saw someone who needed help, he was there, beside them, standing up for their rights. He was a true hero.

Brad loved to travel and whenever he did, he made friends for life wherever he went.

Brad worked as a FedEx contractor for more than 18 years where he won numerous Maine State Driving Championships and he placed in the National Truck Driving Championships several times. While a contractor, he formed many lasting friendships and brought countless smiles to the faces of the people he served.

Brad is survived by his wife and love of his life Olia Cobb, his bonus daughter Adrianna, his sons Bradley III, Nicholas and wife Stacy, Lucas, and his daughter Caitlin, his mother Eunice and stepfather Melvin Long, his sister Betty and brother-in-law Kerry, his brother Barry and wife Elizabeth, his brother Bruce, his brother Brent and wife Corinna, his brother Ben and wife Laura, his brother Byron and husband Chris. Brad will also be sorely missed by his grandchildren who always lit up his world, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces and countless friends who were caught up in his favorite pastime — living life to the fullest.

Visiting hours will be held at Lindquist Funeral Home, One Mayberry Lane, Yarmouth Thursday, 5/20 from 6 – 8PM and Friday, 5/21 from 2 – 4PM and 6 – 8PM. A private memorial service will be held to celebrate Brad’s life Saturday, May 22 and will be live-streamed starting at 11AM.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine or the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.

Brad had such zest for life, we will miss him tremendously! Brad had many talents, he was very good at gardening. Last year he gave me and Mike some zucchini from his garden and one of them was the biggest one I have EVER seen. When he did something he did it BIG! He also made the best Salsa I have ever had. He had a green thumb and enjoyed sharing the fruits of his labor with all.

He was also quite the carpenter as well. I remember when he built the camper and when he made the motorcycle trailer. It was hard work but he did a great job. He loved to give the full tour of his projects but everyone wanted to see and share in his success, he made it such fun.

I am glad we got to share in so many good times like the Clam Fest Parties, Old Port Fest, Unos Happy Hours and Birthday Parties. Brad lived life to the fullest and I am glad Mike and I were able to be there to share in such good times together. He will be MISSED!

I remember when my sister and I went to Brad and Olia's house for the Yarmouth Clam Festival. Brad told stories of how he had added to the house. Brad was funny and entertaining. Both Olia and Brad made us feel at home. Brad loved animals. I remember one time I was at their house and Brad lovingly put a handkerchief on Tibbie so her drool stayed on her hankie. In prayers for Brad's family love to you Olia

Olia, Andianna and the Bartlett family
You are in my thoughts.
Brad had a twinkle in his eyes you could spot at a distance.
When he gave you a hug, it was a bear hug.. no fooling around and given with much affection!
This is so hard to hear and believe...
I'm happy that you had so much fun over the years with
S&G. may all of your memories comfort you.
Love you lots

As a classmate and teammate of Brad I remember him being a loyal team member and friend that you could count on. He was aware of the seriousness of the competition we were in and even back then he was a tough competitor but always had fun too.

I am certain you will be missed by your family and friends and everyone you touched.
