Michael John Bradley

March 31, 1942 — October 17, 2021

Zionsville

Michael John Bradley, 79, of Zionsville, Indiana, passed away October 17, 2021. Born in Indianapolis to Fred and Louise Bradley on March 31, 1942, Michael was a graduate of Arsenal Technical High School and received a BS and an MBA from Indiana University. Mike proudly served as a military police officer in the United States Army in Korea.  He spent his career as an executive manager first at Peter Eckrich & Sons, then at Conagra Foods, and finally at the health care case management company he and his wife, Nicki Jane Bradley started, Bradley Consulting & Management.

Whether meticulously plotting spreadsheets to address quarterly sales records or setting up a card deck for family euchre night in a cabin on the shores of Lake Michigan, whether rooting from the edge of his seat for IU during a particularly heated second half or reading a hefty tome on an historical figure, Mike enjoyed life to the fullest. He and Nicki loved to globetrot and could be found sipping Chianti in Tuscany or riverboat cruising the Rhine. Mike had a great enthusiasm for life in all its array – from family to career to free time. He approached everything he did with eagerness and humor.

Mike will always be remembered for his love for and devotion to his family, his fun-loving spirit, his integrity and thoughtfulness.

Mike is survived by his wife of 55 years, Nicki; their two children, Amanda Bradley and her husband Raymond Hammond, and Eric Bradley and his wife Julie Bradley; grandchildren Sarah Jane Bradley, Allison Jean Bradley, and Andrew Michael Bradley; and his sisters, Jackie Howell and Cynthia Karres. He was preceded in death by his brother, Daniel Bradley.

Funeral services will be held at A.R.N. Funeral & Cremation Services, 11411 N. Michigan Rd., on Friday, October 22, at 4PM. Friends are welcome to visit from 2PM until the time of the service.
