Bradley Dick passed away Tuesday, August 16, 2016 after a lengthy struggle with Parkinson’s Disease and Lewy Body Dementia. He was born May 16, 1943 to John Rex Dick and Blanche Bradley in Shelley, Idaho and spent his early years in both eastern Idaho and the Boise area. He married Nancy Ann Jensen on Valentine’s Day, February 14,1962. They moved permanently to the Boise area in 1969 and raised their three daughters there. Bradley attended Plumbers and Pipefitters Journeyman school and was a Union Plumber until his retirement in 2005. He was a proud member of the Plumber and Pipefitters Local 296.
Brad and Nancy enjoyed camping, fishing and hunting all over Idaho and took their daughters on many camping adventures over the years. He also enjoyed trap-shooting and patiently taught many family members and friends the finer points of shot-gun sports. In his own right, he was a very good shot and won many awards and honors – including an extensive collection of belt buckles. Mom never had to buy a turkey – the freezer was always full of his “winnings”.
Brad is survived by his wife of 54 years, Nancy Ann Dick. Daughters: Kelly (Drew) Jossis, Kathy Dick, Leigh-Anne (Stacy) Rainey. Grandchildren: Kayce Jossis (Jon Crow), Kevin and Marcus Rainey and great-grandson, Arthur Crow. His brothers: Jerald Dick, Monte Dick, Cory Walker and Dennis Dick. He has numerous nieces and nephews and extended family that cherished his strong family bonds.
Brad was preceded in death by his parents, Rex and Blanche, and his beloved sister, Ronda Williams.
Legacy Hospice provided wonderful care for Dad and help for our family over the last 2 ½ years. We especially want to thank Jami, Chaplain Jay, Linda, Sunni, and Terra. We also want to thank his caregivers at Ivy Place and his home caregivers from Brightstar – Jason and Adam. They were all very patient and kind with Dad.
At his request, no services will be held. Please remember Brad as a good man, husband, father, Poppa and also as a darn good shot.
