Obituary

Robert (Bob) Bradbury, age 30, passed away unexpectedly in his home on Thursday, April 4, 2019. He was born January 10, 1989 to Ken Bradbury and Kari Sherman. He attended Oregon schools and graduated from Oregon High School in 2007, where he enjoyed art and Spanish classes and played goalkeeper on the soccer team. His talents on the soccer field earned him a position on the varsity soccer team at Ripon College. While at Ripon he majored in Education and English, graduating in 2012.
Robert was known for his adventurous, energetic, and creative spirit, and translated these qualities into coaching, teaching, music, and art. He had a gift for working with children and made a tremendous impact coaching soccer and snowboarding, guiding hiking and camping trips as a camp counselor, and assisting kids with special needs in the classroom at Monona Grove High School. He was part of a very supportive recovery community in Madison and Fitchburg where he enjoyed sharing his passions for guitar, writing, art, and yoga.
Robert is survived by his parents, Ken and Kari, sister Ann Bradbury (Andrew Navarro), aunts Jeanine Sherman, Laurie Sherman, and Hester Bradbury (Ignacio Navarrete), and cousins Andy Navarrete and Paul Navarrete, as well as many close friends.
A celebration of Robert’s life will be held at Tyrol Basin Ski Area on Sunday April 28 from 1-4 pm.

I would like to share a few fond memories that I am so lucky to have enjoyed with Robert. Robert was my primary backpacking counselor this past summer of 2018 at Boys Trails End in Glen Haven, Colorado. I usually am day hiker, but this summer I decided to get out of my comfort zone and try backpacking. I backpacked every opportunity I could, and therefore spent nearly every single day of program with him. I knew Robert in a way that probably no other camper did. His favorite tradition, which carried true throughout every trip, would be to wade and relax for about an hour in a cold body of water near wherever we were camping. He called it his "nature bath". I was about the only one who ever did this with him because the water was often (nearly) unbearably cold, but nothing that a few midwesterners couldn't handle. We sat and talked about life, got to know each other. We discussed experiences we've had, our values, politics, nature, everything. Sometimes the bodies of water were so small and remote, I'm certain we are the first and last people to ever wade in them. Every night he would have the backpackers get together, no matter how tired we were from the days hike, and sing our Unit Song (below) followed by Taps while the sun was setting. "Trials end, trails end; You're in our hearts forever. Life here is something to remember. Love flows in as each day begins, for there is a spirit that never ends. We share bundles of love, with Signal sun setting above. As the North Fork sings its song, another peaceful day is gone. The day is done, gone the sun; from the lakes, from the hills, from the skies...All is well, safely rest; God is Nigh. " It truly amazes me how much these kind of experiences can get you acquainted with someone in ways that you would never expect. Robert was an amazing mentor to me and enriched me with so many experiences that I will never forget. I am profoundly saddened to hear of his passing. My heart is with his close friends and family.

I'm very sad to hear of Robert's passing. He was a literally a God-send to Glacial Drumlin School in the spring of 2018 when he was hired to work with students in need of intensive support. He had the ability to connect with the hardest to reach students using humor and compassion. I was grateful for Robert's commitment at a time when we needed him most. I thought he had promising potential as an educator. He was appreciated for his positive energy and for making a difference in the lives of the students he served on a daily basis. Condolances to his family during this time of tremendous loss.

(This is from one of Bob's assistant coaches) Bob and I co-coordinated one of the Millennium soccer club sites for a while together. And you are so right- your big brother was an incredibly talented soccer coach and genuinely kind person. It didn’t matter how much a kiddo could or couldn’t pay to play soccer- he treated each and every one of them as if their development as a soccer player and their worth as a human was worth more than gold. I remember the first time we met- I had just joined as a co-coordinator at the Millennium site that he had been coaching at for a while already. We met at a coffee shop ahead of time- I think he wanted to be sure that I was going to take it seriously, that I was going to give the kids and their families the high quality soccer programming they deserved. And, seriously, bless him for that- he can rest easy knowing that he beautifully impacted hundreds of kids (probably more) and brought equitable (not to mention fun and high quality!) access to soccer instruction that so many talented and precious kids don’t have access to. Bob helped to significantly tilt the scale back towards equity...it seems he helped do that in everything he did, not just soccer. He will be missed dearly and definitely remembered.

I had the honor of having Coach Bobby as my soccer coach for three years at Madison West High School. He was incredibly dedicated and passionate about soccer and he truly cared about every single player. He made sure to connect with each one of us through humor, which made the team an welcoming community. He always challenged us to do our best at practice and spent endless hours preparing drills. I remember him coming early to practice every day, bringing his guitar, and playing it for us as we got ready. He was well organized and made sure that we all became better players. I offer my sincerely condolences to Coach Bobby's family and friends. He truly brought joy to the world and he will be sincerely missed.
