Bradley Marshall King, Jr.

Bradley was born May 5, 1982, in Brunswick to Bradley Marshall King Sr. and Kelli S. King. He graduated Glynn Academy High School in 2000 and was the highest ranking MCJROTC Cadet in the school.

Unable to pursue a military career due to a diagnosis of juvenile Type I diabetes, Bradley turned his focus to law enforcement and served the Greenville County Detention Center for 15 years, reaching rank of Sergeant.

Bradley is survived by his mother, Kelli Horne (Gary) (Fountain Inn, SC), and his father Bradley King Sr. (Greenville, SC), maternal grandmother Betty Smith (Brunswick, GA), paternal grandfather, Emerson L. King (Orange Park, FL). Others left to honor Bradley and remember his influence in their lives are his stepbrother, Gary Horne (Jennifer) (Taylors, SC), a half-sister, Kerrie Reese, (Glennville, GA), cousins Danielle and Lindsey Smith, Liam and Cali Neal, all of Brunswick. He is also survived by other aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Bradley made countless friends growing up on Blythe Island. He attended the local church, Blythe Island Baptist. He accepted the Lord as his Savior January 22, 1991. Upon moving to South Carolina in 2000, Bradley increased his circle of friends whose lives he will always be a part of.

As one of Bradley’s dearest friends said, “Bradley was the best of us. His kindness, generosity, compassion, and gentle nature was admirable and unconditional”.

Bradley went to sleep Friday night surrounded by a dialysis machine, an oxygen machine, fluid around his heart and lungs, and a plethora of meds. He awoke Saturday morning, whole, in the arms of his Savior.

A celebration to honor Bradley’s life will be held Saturday, February 3, 2024 at 10:00 am in the Chapel of Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home with Reverend Jimmy Crandall officiating. A reception will immediately follow. Inurnment will be in Chapel Park Cemetery.
