The life journey of Bradley T. Burke, son of the late Theodore Burke and Martha Brown Burke, began on May 10,1950, in Uniontown PA and ended at his home in Uniontown surrounded by loved ones on September 26, 2023, at the age of 73. What a life he had!
In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by his brothers: Tom Brown, Bill and Keith Burke; and his furry friends: Mike, Chay Lin, Pandy, Buster, Teddy, Winston, and Daisy Mae.
He is survived by many family members and friends who loved, laughed, agreed, and disagreed with him including his wife of 41 years, Nancy Davis; the daughter of his heart, Tashia Kellam and her spouse, Naquana Barrow; and his adored grandchildren: Jo'von Kellam, Laisha and Noah Jimenez, all whom brought such joy to his heart; sisters: Devorre "Deedee" Dillard and Anita Kay Smith; nieces and nephews: Andre, Bryant, Keith, and Darwin Dillard, and Anthony and Brent Brown; special niece, Tamika Burke, and special nephew, John Smith; and special friends: Ed Swaney, Mark DiNunno, Donnie Williams, Billy DeShields, and Adolph Edwards.
Bradley was known by the names such as T, Bradee, Burke, Brad, Dad, Poppie, and Uncle Brad. He loved his animals and he recently had Benny, his rescue dog. He had the most engaging smile and never met a stranger. He had friends everywhere.
He graduated from Uniontown Area High School in the class of 1968. Throughout his life he was employed at Ford, Volkswagen, and opals furniture and Bradley was employed for over 30 years at Fayette Arc where he became friends with many there.
Bradley loved football, especially the Steelers, and basketball. He was an avid watcher of cooking shows and Judge Judy, and he never missed watching The Voice, and America’s Got Talent and he and his friend, Marlene Burke Hogan, would often compare who could pick the winner. He would often tell his wife, Nancy, that she was not following the recipes from the cooking shows while she was cooking. Bradley could make a delicious meatloaf. He was known as the “Sentinel” in our neighborhood because he was always on watch. While on the front porch he also enjoyed watching the hummingbirds. Bradley had the most immaculate car in Uniontown and often jokingly calling out Nancy and their grandkids for the condition of their cars.
Friends will be received on Friday, September 29th from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM, at the LANTZ Funeral Home, Inc., 297 E. Main St, Uniontown, PA, where the funeral will also be held on Saturday, September 30th at 11:00 AM.
The family gives many thanks to the dialysis center including Liz, Susan, Wendy, Issys, Hope and Dr Ali, and others who cared for Bradley.
The family requests any donations be made to: Keeping the faith Animal Shelter and Rescue Center, PO BOX 1161, Uniontown, PA 15401.
