Northbridge- Stephen C. Bradley, 54, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Sun. July 11, 2021. Although he had recent health issues, his passing was totally unexpected and shattering to his family and friends. He had many nicknames "Irish”, “Johnny the Boy”, and “Ted”, with a story behind them all.
He is survived by his soulmate, love of his life ,and partner of 18 years, Kim (McQuade) McNeil; 2 stepchildren, Nicholas McNeil of Southbridge and Ryan McNeil and his fiancé TJ Lawson of Millbury; 5 grandchildren, William, Cameron, Quin, Liam, and Owen; his loving mother, Jean (Gallagher) Bradley of Duxbury. His Father Norman Bradley predeceased him. He leaves his brothers, Norman A. Bradley Jr. and his wife Jean of Plymouth, and Raymond P. Bradley of Arizona, several nieces and nephews, including his nephew Danny Bradley with whom he shared a special bond. Only a few years apart in age, they were more like brothers. He also leaves many-many great friends who are devastated by his passing far too soon. He also leaves his loyal dog and companion Ginger. Stephen would always say "dogs and kids just get me" and they too were all drawn to him.
Born on May 28, 1967 he grew up in Natick and was a graduate of Natick High School Class of 1985. Steve worked as a Painter for his close friend Michael Wright for 10 years with his company, Wright Touch Painting. Currently, he was working in Maintenance for the Grafton- Upton Railroad the past 5 years. He loved his job and brought his light heartedness daily to work. He was also very fond of his co-workers. He has lived the past 11 years in Northbridge.
Stephen was a quick witted, kind, and caring man. Always the life of the party, Stephen had either a joke, trick, or story to bring laughter to any occasion. He was a natural draw, amazing at entertaining those around him. He could do a backflip, multiple amazing card tricks, and illusions to entertain. He was stalky but, a surprisingly athletic guy. He will be missed by all that knew and loved him.
