Mr. William Earl Bradley, affectionately known as “Sweat” was born September 5, 1966 in Greensville, Alabama to the late Mrs. Lois Jean Crenshaw. Though William had no specific church home he enjoyed worshiping at Beulah First Baptist, Striving for Perfection and Greater Peace. William departed his life in Fort Walton Beach, Florida at the age of 52. He was preceded in death by his mother Lois Jean Crenshaw and one sister Debra Ann Crenshaw.
William leaves to cherish his memories his wife, Phyllis Clemons Bradley; three children, Tianna (Corey)Smith, Christopher (Tiffany) Smith and Philip (Brittney) Smith; three sisters, Linda (Chris) Womack, Edna Bradley and Regina Crenshaw; two brothers, Wilson (Melanie) Crenshaw and Sylvester Smith; four grandchildren, Jadyn, Levi, Messiah and Lennox Smith; three special friends, Henry Mount (Mickey), Evonn Benson (Po-boot) and Larry Smedley (Bird); he also leaves a host of aunties, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends too numerous to name.
William (“Sweats”) Children and Grandchildren were the pride and joy of his life. The legacy of “Sweat’s” kind and free spirit, passion for sports, singing, dancing, shucking and jiving (as he would say), and zest for life will live on through them.
It was often said that “Sweat” never met a stranger. He never kept his smile to himself. He enjoyed life, family members and his many, many friends. He was always there to brighten the lives of others.
The day came too soon where an angel has drifted away. Your love, laughter, and memories will forever be with us. We love you “Sweat”. You will forever be in our hearts. Our God knows best and He has an amazing spot just for you. So until we meet again… you will be missed. Just knowing the love and laughter you gave us was truly an awesome gift.
Rest in Peace
