I was very sorry to hear of the passing of "Brad," my Rutgers football and track teammate. We would see each other at reunions of our 1961 undefeated football team over the years Brad was a hammer thrower on the track and field team and I was a shot putter. On the gridiron Brad was a tough guy and fierce competitor. Gus Giebelhaus, Atlanta
Dear Dot and Family, We are saddened to recently hear about Addison passing away. You have our condolences, your family are in our thoughts. Prayers for peace and comfort, Love Margie, Maurizio and the Bielakowski Sisters
I believe my father, Sam Strauss, had some influence on Mr. Bradley going to Rutgers. He was the alumni trustee and used to help out on recruiting and the like in South Jersey--he was a Camden lawyer and we lived in Cherry Hill. In any case, I remember Mr. Bradley playing for the football team, since when I was a kid, my father took me to a lot of games. I remember that final game in 1961 vs. Columbia and still have the ticket. Columbia was also undefeated going into the game, I believe, so for the time and place, it was a huge game. The center on that team was Alex Kroll, who played for the Jets for a year and then became, eventually, the CEO for Young and Rubicam, the big ad agency. So not only was the team good at football, but based on Mr. Kroll and Mr. Bradley, good at many things. I know my father was proud of Mr. Bradley and I send this note in both their memories.
Dottie Rich Bradley here, sad to hear about Addison's death. Back in college days we knew each other well and when Rutgers played at Lehigh we'd get together. Also, enjoyed our times together at the farm and family reunions. In Florida so won 't make the services. Will you stream them? Rich
Sending sincere condolence's to dot and family. I know how much you will miss this kind, gentle man. God bless you all, jean veteri
