Robert "Bradley" Wehby

August 30, 1976 — April 27, 2024

Robert “Bradley” Wehby passed away unexpectedly Saturday, April 27th 2024. It was a great shock to his family and friends, and he will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. 

Bradley left behind his mother Carole Kelley, sister Jennifer (and husband Phil) Murgatroyd, step-brother Shane Kelley, and step-sister Rachael Rogers; aunts Patricia Major, Kay Poole, Bettilynn Ford, and Janie Seaver; uncles Mike (and wife Susan) Wootten and Bobby Gay; a full cohort of cousins, many lifelong friends and an ever-increasing number of cats. 

He was met on the other side by his father Don Gay, step-father Tom Kelley, uncles Artie Poole and Larry Wootten, all of his grandparents, and too many of his friends.

Bradley was a very loving, if sometimes complicated, character who never met a stranger that didn’t become a friend. He had a genuine, gentle soul and a generous spirit who only saw the good in people. His heart was too big for his own good in a lot of ways, but he would have given anything he had to anyone who needed it. His greatest act of generosity was becoming an organ donor, a gift that was tenderly and respectfully facilitated by the team from LifeLink Foundation. 

Bradley had a big, active brain that carried him down some dark hallways at times, but he was always searching and learning. As a kid, he loved watching airplanes take off from outside the Nashville Airport, and more recently he took the same delight in watching space shuttle launches from his backyard. He took close-up pictures of the moon with his telescope, and he compiled weather maps from data he collected himself from satellites.

Ever curious, Bradley had an arsenal of self-taught skills, from repairing household appliances to building computers and radio antennae. He was an avid amateur radio enthusiast with his own callsign, even once reaching an astronaut on the International Space Station with his own equipment.

He could be recognized by his epic beard, flat caps, bright blue eyes, and deep laughter. He will be remembered for his warmth, kindness, intelligence, and loyalty. His reach was truly bigger than the planet.

Bradley left us suddenly and without warning, but he did prefer to remain an enigma most of the time. In his own immortal words, yargs.
