Glenn Phillip Bradley

NORMAN — Glenn Phillip Bradley was born Oct. 14, 1921, in Ada, to Robert W. Bradley and Lottie Lea (Wallace) Bradley. He passed Monday, June 23, 2014, in Santa Fe, N.M., and will be interred at Santa Fe National Cemetery with full military honors. Glenn will rest alongside the love of his life, Marjorie (Givens) Bradley, who preceded him in death on May 22, 2012. In 1984, Marjorie suffered a disabling stroke and Glenn became her full time care giver.

Glenn’s large family moved to Norman in 1935 where he graduated from Norman High School in 1939. He remained a lifetime supporter of Norman High School alumni. Glenn continued his education at the University of Oklahoma where he was a member of ROTC and the University’s nationally recognized men’s glee club. He was called to the service of his country during World War II prior to completing his degree. After the war, Glenn returned to the University to complete his B.A. in journalism.

Glenn received his officer commission at Ft. Sill and was sent to England, Germany and later to France. He was wounded but returned to service; later he was seriously injured in the Battle of The Bulge while crossing the Moselle River. Glenn received two Purple Hearts and after the war traveled to many places searching for the name and location of the person who had removed him, the unconscious soldier, from the Moselle.

After recovering from his injuries Glenn worked first for the Norman Transcript where he earned the nickname “Scoop” and then went on to work for The Daily Oklahoman and The University Press as sales manager. Glenn retired later in life after representing a group of publishing companies throughout the southwestern United States.

His love for the southwest led Glenn and Marjorie to eventually build a home in Santa Fe. It also won him the honor of having Fodor’s New Mexico Guide to Santa Fe, Taos and Albuquerque dedicated to him.
