He was married to Betty Vick on May 2, 1997. He worked as an adult probation officer in Wharton for 27 years and started managing the family ranch in 2001.

Bradley was a loving husband, father and friend. He was very caring and never met a stranger. He enjoyed spending time managing Vick Ranch and took great pride in maintaining it. His goal was to make Vick Ranch a well-established name in the hunting and leisure business. He loved hosting guests, shredding the fields, and watching the deer and cows graze. He was also an avid Texans fan. His true passion was his family and he loved spending time with them. 

Visitation begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 23 at Triska Funeral Home. Services will follow at 2 p.m. with the Rev. Rick DuBroc officiating. Burial will follow at Garden of Memories Cemetery.
