He was a farmer and later worked at the Lonestar Cement Plant, from which he retired from after 30 years of employment.
A daughter, Carroll Rose Meeker, died in 1979. His wife, Josephine Bradley, died in 2000.
Survivors include five children, Patty Bradley of the home, Kathy Benson, Edwardsville, Margaret Chapman, Bonner Springs, John W. Bradley, Orrick, Mo., and Gloria Chambers, Leavenworth; four grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
