A Memorial, What Makes Us Special

The Passing of Minor-Canon Ray Bradley, Organist for Resurrection Anglican Church

Resurrection Anglican Church has lost our beloved first organist, Ray Bradley.  Ray was the type of musician who became the heart and soul of the instrument he played, and provided the verse and meter to our wonderful liturgy.

Ray was surrounded by his wife, Anna, and his children when he left this temporal life for an eternal one, and is now home with the Lord and Savior he loved so much.  Ray was a man of great faith, and despite his many health challenges remained a steadfast example of dedication to his faith and church.  We can’t thank him enough for his music, his gentle spirit, and his kindness.  We will miss you greatly dear friend.

Rest Eternal grant unto Him, O Lord, and May light perpetual shine upon him…
