    I was a student of then Fr. Bradley at St. Mary’s elementary and Colgan High School. Will always remember his car, the ‘Titanic” and his passion for computers. He was a great teacher for us, and had a great rapport with everyone in the parish. After leaving Pittsburg, he was assigned to Hutchinson – Trinity. He made a special trip back just for our classes graduation. I know he made a positive impact on everyone in my class at Colgan High.

  2. Shawn, Rhonda & Makenzie Says:

    To know Randy was something so special. We were so truly blessed to have had Randy be part of our family for the last 12 years. We loved him deeply and will miss him so much. Randy gave us love, compassion, true friendship, his wonderful laughter, and he shared with us his love for God.
