Adam Shane Bradford
September 05, 1971 - November 21, 2016

Adam Shane Bradford, age 45, died Monday, November 21, 2016 in Dover. Mr. Bradford was born in Ashland, Kentucky and is the son of Paul Boughner of Indiana and Carla (Bradford) Clester of Kentucky.

Adam honorably served our country in the Army branch of the United States Military. He bravely fought in the Iraq War. Adam went to school for Wastewater Treatment and worked as an operator at Clean Delaware and later Kent County Levy Court Facility. He was employed as a Chef at many reputable restaurants in Rehoboth, Dewey and Bethany Beach.
Adam had a love for all sports and could rattle off statistics with the best of them. He especially was known for his never-ending support as a loyal fan to the Washington Redskins, which he shared with his son, Brendon. Adam had a generous, helpful heart and loving spirit towards everyone he met. He is known for his kindness, bright smile, and contagious laugh. He was courageous and proud to be a veteran for our country. However, Adamís most proud accomplishment in his life were his children, whom he dearly adored with undying love. 

In addition to his parents and stepfather Ronald Clester, Adam is survived by one daughter: Miranda Robbins and two sons: Brendon A. Bradford of Selbyville and Seth G. Bradford of Lewes. Also, Adam is survived by brother Christopher Hutchinson, sister in-law AnnaLisa, and niece, Anna, all of Germany.

A mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday, November 28, 2016 at St. Lukeís Catholic Church in Ocean City, Maryland at 11am. Burial will be in Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Millsboro. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Adamís memory to Home of the Brave, Veteranís Homeless Shelter in 6632 Sharps Rd. Milford, DE. 19963 (homeofthebravefdn.org)

God Speed Adam, For those of you who only knew Adam as an adult let me tell you a little about his youth. I played football with him as a kid. In fact he was the starting fullback on a team that went undefeated in 1983 and 84. The Redskins. He was a monster who ALWAYS got the first down. Also, Yes he was a big fan of the Washington Redskins just like we all were in 1982-84. I would venture to say our JFL team was the reason he was a lifelong fan of the Redskins. Sorry to hear this news.

I remember Adam fondly from our time together in school. He was very genuine. As his obituary reads, "Adam had a generous, helpful heart and loving spirit towards everyone he met...known for his kindness, bright smile, and contagious laugh" is exactly how I remember him as a teenager. My sincere condolences to Adam's family, friends and loved ones.
