Bradley Thomas Fredericks

November 26, 1986 — April 7, 2024

South Euclid, Ohio


Bradley Thomas Fredericks was taken from this world far too soon and too young on April 7, 2024, in South Euclid, Ohio. He was 37 years old.

He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on November 26, 1986, on what would become his favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. As a young child, he was affectionately known as "Butterball" because of it.

The beloved son of Bradley and Valerie, he was a mama's boy through and through with a deep love and connection with his mother. He had a caring and loving heart and was kind to everyone with no enemies. He was loved by everybody who knew him and touched lives in a good way. He was highly smart, both book smart and street smart, and knew how to get out of any situation he found himself in.

He loved playing video games and had a deep passion for science and anything sci-fi related, with a deep obsession with aliens. He was also known as a conspiracy theorist, having deep, thought-provoking discussions with those he loved.

His adored siblings, Jessica, Chadwick, and Jacob described Bradley as a pain in the ass and a dick. Wildly annoying in a way that only a brother can be, he was impressive and resilient, fighting and beating many demons. Fearless with most things he faced in life, he was 100% terrified of heights and roller coasters, and in true sibling fashion, they never let him live that down, especially at Dollywood on the gondola ride.

As an uncle, Bradley became a best friend to his niece, Mia, with whom he shared a special relationship. One of the biggest influencers in her life, he always had a way to make her smile during the hard points of her life during their extremely long conversations.

Bradley met the love of his life, Brandi, and they shared three wonderful years. They loved to go to out-of-the-way places together, sharing the memories made with his parents upon their return. Soul mates and best friends, Bradley loved Brandi beyond words and they married on April 30, 2023.

He was proud of his tattoos and loved them as a way of expression-sharing several tattoos with Brandi that reflected their love for one another.

Lastly, he loved being surrounded by nature, whether being in the woods or out in the country. One of his dreams was to purchase a plot of land in the middle of nature where no one else was around. He loved the stone collection that he gathered throughout the years.

Bradley served his country honorably in the United States Army, where he served as a missile control specialist.

Bradley is survived by his loving parents, Bradley Dean and Valerie Rene (nee Copen) Fredericks; wife, Brandi (nee Krumpman) Fredericks; siblings, Jessica, Chadwick, and Jacob (wife, Talia) Fredericks; niece, Mia Anderson and his uncle, Brian Copen.

He is preceded in death by his beloved grandparents, Marion and Jewell Copen, and uncle, David Copen.
