Mr. Bradford was born in Leonard, Texas, on March 14, 1924, to Wiley Fate and Alta Mae (Whitworth) Bradford. After living in Leonard for several years, where he began school and farmed with his dad, the family moved to Greer County in the early 1940's.

Setting up their first home in the Wild Cat Community, a short time later, they moved to the Duke area. After their house burned, they moved to the Russell Community, where they lived until moving to Mangum in 2005.
