Mark Francis Bradley, 52, of Marietta, Ohio, died Thursday, August 4, 2022, at home peacefully surrounded by family. He was born September 15, 1969 in Marietta to Gertrude and Charles Roger Bradley. Born and raised in Marietta, Mark graduated from Marietta High School in 1987 and Ohio University in 1991. He played baseball for the Ohio Bobcats, helping the team win the conference championship in 1991 and earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Mark has been a four-time Hall of Famer (MHS, MOV, OU and Life). After baseball and graduation, Mark earned an MBA in 1998, also from Ohio University. After serving as the 20th President of Peoples Bank, Mark joined Magnum Magnetics in 2010 where another great support group and family was born. Someone once said, “When Mark was here at the bank, we all wanted his job, and now that he’s gone to Magnum, we all want his job.” Mark played a bit of golf (2 time MCC club champion ’11, ’20, that’s for sure, of course). In addition, Mark broadcast local high school and college sports on WMOA for 30 years, including being on the microphone for 3 national championships in 2006, 2011 and 2012. He and his wife, Tammi Bradley, have two daughters: Emilee and Gabrielle Bradley.
He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Tammi; two daughters, Emmie (fiancé Alec Hinton) and Gabby; mother, Gert Bradley; brother, Charles Bradley II (Kim); sister, Beth Maxon; mother-in-law, Vicki Hull; and several aunts, uncles, nieces and a nephew. Mark is also survived by a huge amount of loving and caring friends. Has he left ? No, no, he’s alive and well in everything he’s touched.
He is predeceased by his father, Roger Bradley; stepfather, David Hull; and brother-in-law, DJ Maxon.
