James T. Bradley of Southampton died on April 3 at his home in Palm Coast, Florida. He was 74. Mr. Bradley was born in Buffalo, NY to James and Catherine (McGuire) Bradley on April 24, 1940. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force at age 17 and was stationed in Westhampton Beach, where he met Joan, his wife of 54 years.


“Big Jim,” as he was known by friends, was a beloved member of the Southampton community, where he and Joan resided and raised their family. After the Air Force, Jim went on to work for the Town of Southampton for 30 years and was a member of the North Sea fire department. Jim had many hobbies, including coaching sports teams, fishing, going to the beach, and spending time with family and friends. Upon retirement in 1995, Jim enjoyed collecting classic cars, going to car shows, and spending winters in Florida with his wife and their many friends.


Jim is survived by his wife, Joan Bradley, daughter, Deborah Bennett and son-in-law Thomas Bennett, of East Quogue, two sons, James Bradley Jr. and Jeffrey Bradley, both of Southampton, two granddaughters, Emily and Molly Bennett, of East Quogue, brother, John Bradley of Niskayuna, NY, sister-in-law Suzie Bradley, of California, and numerous nieces and nephews.
