Bradley Ray Adair

Memorial service for Mr. Bradley Ray Adair, of Monroe, LA, will be held at 11:00 AM, Friday, April 5, 2024, in the chapel of Mulhearn Funeral Home on Sterlington Road in Monroe, with Reverend Brian Mercer officiating. Private entombment will follow in Mulhearn Memorial Park Mausoleum. Visitation will be from 10:00 AM until the time of the service.

Bradley was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, on December 1, 1960, and passed away at his home on March 29, 2024. He was preceded in death by his parents, Billy Ray Adair and Eloise Virginia Mathis Adair.

Survivors include his sister, Diane Mathis Brown, brother, Edwin Adair and wife Rebecca, nieces and nephews, Morgan, Evan, and Nick Adair, Ellie Jo Malki, Lauren Logue, and Benjamin Logue, and the love of his life, Shannon Spooner Holloway.

Bradley was 63 years young when God decided his pathway on this earth had come to an end. Many knew him for a lifetime and others for a shorter time, but to know Bradley was to love him.

Bradley attended Lakeshore Elementary, Ouachita Junior High, and River Oaks High School where he excelled in many sports. He went to Angelina Junior College on a baseball scholarship and later transferred to NLU where he was a member of Kappa Alpha fraternity. 

Our God is a good God and He gave Bradley many talents. He was a gifted athlete, a creative sports photographer, a renowned culinary want-to-be, a computer analyst and website creator, and last but certainly not least, he was a “Cat and Dog Whisperer”. Facebook was quite entertaining with his videos and pictures of his adventures with Sadie and Wilbur, and any strays or even pets of neighbors. They always had a place to hang out, something to eat, and a friendly conversation while being held in Bradley’s arms.

God had his reasons for taking Bradley when He did. In Max Lucado’s book, Traveling Light, the chapter “When Mourning Comes” offers a comforting aspect to losing a loved one. He asks, “How could death be good? Lucado states that death is God’s way of taking people away from evil, such as an extended disease . . . as in Bradley’s battle with heart disease. He also adds, “All the days planned for me were written in your book before I was one day old.” Psalm 139:16 “No person lives one day more or less than God intends and when the quantity of years has outstripped the quality of years, we don’t have to ask how death can be good.”

Even though Bradley’s last sunset has come too soon for us, we will always have funny and thoughtful memories of him and his gentle nature and simple peculiarities. He’s most likely in Heaven talking politics and Razorbacks, at this very moment, to anyone who will listen. That was our Bradley.
