David was the beloved life-partner of Scott Rombach for 25 years; the dear son of James and the late Josephine Bradford; dear brother of Jim Bradford, Janet Pleiman, Joyce Tempesta, Barbara Bradford and Phyllis Dahm. A dear nephew, uncle, great-uncle, cousin and friend to many, he will be truly missed.

A quiet and gentle person with a kind heart, David shared his love and passion for nature with countless children, adults, and friends. He was a gifted mentor and inspiration to his colleagues.
