Bradley Jason Davis – Born April 4th, 2007 completed his work here on Earth and returned home peacefully to his Heavenly Father on June 28th, 2018. Brad, B-rad, B, BDB, Beef, Beefcake, Beefcake in the weeds, Big Red, Bradley Bear…no matter which nickname you knew him by his outgoing personality and blazing red hair was certainly the life of every party and he shared his love and happiness with all those who he came in contact with. He had a passion for music, playing the piano and the drums, as well singing. He sang in any venue, from private concerts for one or two people in the house, to church meetings, as well as karaoke on cruise ships and even sang the 7th inning stretch in front of over 15,000 fans at Cubs and Giants Spring Training Games. He loved baseball and was a 5 year veteran of The Miracle League of Arizona (www.mlaz.org). He enjoyed being outside and was very active. He loved his cousins and spent any chance he could with them. He loved anything with wheels and loved going fast on anything with wheels, especially his tandem bike, the green machine, the race car, The Beast, and The Viking. He was always in the mood for bean burritos, breakfast burritos, anything chocolate, pancake Saturday, chocolate milk and never met a cookie he didn’t like. His squealing laugh and his smile were contagious. He could cheer you up with his most legendary “squeezes” (hugs). Although he was born blind, he didn’t let that slow him down. He knew who you were by the sound of your voice and never forgot a voice or a name. He taught thru his example to accept and love others for who they are even if they are little different than you. He leaves behind a loving Mother (Evonne) and Father (Jason) and three siblings, Older Brother, Tyler (13) and younger twin Sister and Brother, Abigail and Daxton (6). He has many relatives who have preceded him and will watch over him for this short time away. He is loved by all who had the privilege to know him and his departure will surely leave a void in all of our hearts, but at the same he has filled our hearts with so much love. We thank all of those who have helped him along the way, from so many friends and neighbors, as well as his doctors and nurses and therapist and teachers who have so lovingly cared for him all.

    Keep the faith and all the wonderful memories of your little red head angel

    Your friend,
    John

Lots of love heading your way from our family!!

  • Susan Freestone

    I was sad and shocked to hear of Bradley’s passing. I remember when he was first learning to ride a bike down the driveway of your Dartmouth home with a barrier at the end to stop him. Your family has always had a place in my heart.

  • Mark and Annie Skousen

    we are so sorry for your loss! Bradley will always hold a special place in our hearts. Thanks to Bradley we got to be apart of the amazing miracle little league.
    One of my favorite memories of Bradley was during one of there baseball games and my mom was his buddy for that game, he asked my mom what she looks like, they became fast friends by the end of the game he kept asking her hey “nana” will you be my buddy for every game?!?

  • The Myers Family (TLC)

    I am so shocked to hear this news… our hearts and tears go out to your family at this time.
    When the Primary children of the Trovita ward would go up to the front of the chapel and sing songs there was one child that my eyes and the Spirit would draw me to who would always know every word to the songs sung… that would be Bradley. He would be so brave to go up and stood for what was right. I grew up with a great friend I had who was visually impaired but that didn’t stop him from climbing Squaw Peak mountain and attending the local public school. He was an inspiration to me and throughout my life when we were kids and Bradley also seemed to be that type of character. You could feel such a good and warm Spirit in him always when I knew he was around at Church. This experience I had seeing Bradley stand up and sing is an inspiration to me and will help me and my family throughout my life. He was needed elsewhere and the joys and his smile will last forever in our hearts/memories. We’ll always be there for your family just like how Bradley was there for all of us.

  • Trevor Jensen

    We will miss this precious little angel! His love of music and fun attitude always make me smile!

  • Cassandra Switalski

    Bradley was a miracle in himself, and one of my favorite stories of triumph at the Miracle League of Arizona. I will never forget the sheer joy and pride as he hit that first live pitch on his own, nearly taking off Dave’s kneecaps, and as he so beautifully sang the 7th Inning Stretch in front of hundreds at Sloan Park!

    I send so much baseball love and strength from his large, extended Miracle League family. That smile, red hair, and incredible attitude will be greatly missed, but forever remembered with us!

  • Thomas and Virginia Ricks

    Bradley was simply amazing. I was lucky enough to be his primary teacher for a short time last year. He won my heart over by his attitude and enthusiasm. Family and friends will all miss him, and we pray for the spirit to comfort all. I will always remember calling out his name as I would see him and he never missed answering back, hi Brother Ricks.

  • Jacqueline Benson

    Seeing Bradley’s smile every Saturday morning at the Miracle League was always a highlight of my day. I will never forget playing with him and his buddy in the outfield, taking the ball on an adventure through outer space. His positivity and great attitude were an inspiration to all of us, and will be greatly missed. Sending you all thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

  • One of the ALL TIME GREATS of Miracle League Baseball….As a founder of MLAZ ,I was blessed to be the Game Time Announcer. It gave me such joy to watch Brad waiting anxiously on the on-deck circle as he prepared to hit. In the beginning we set the ball on the tee and let Bradley swing away..As time passed he gained confidence and Dave H. would pitch him the ball..I remember coach Jim..standing near him and giving him verbal clues as to the ball was coming from Dave into his arch of swinging the bat… “SWING”…What LOVE to watch the guys help Bradley make contact..and make contact he did!!!! Then it was off to the races as Bradley hustled down the line….Once he reached third ,you knew he had the “green light” and he would head home, as we all cheered him on.. he crossed the plate his face exploded with joy…..What a privilege we all shared as his happiness was contagious, and we carried that smile with us all day..and will do so every time we think of him……I will ALWAYS remember this beautiful boy…..God has called him Home ..Thank You Bradley for being such a wonderful boy who brightened our lives and made us all realize the Love we all share at MLAZ..

  • Jason and family:
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your young man Bradley will forever be an inspiration. What a wonderful gift.

  • Jason, I never met your Bradley, but I knew through our discussions that God had given you a special child to care for. Remembering you and your family during this difficult time.

  • Shalynna Crandall

    I have been thinking of you all ever since I found out the news. I wish I had the pleasure of knowing this beautiful boy. May you always feel him close. Families are forever ♥️

  • SUMINDER and Manderp SODHI

    Jason & family,
    Our thoughts and prayers with you at this time of sadness. RIP Bradley

  • Prayers your way…Families are for ever.

  • Nancy McGuire

    My favorite memory of Bradley was when he came to piano lessons with a brand new unopened CD of “The Greatest Showman “ crammed into his shorts pocket. It was a little tricky to sit like that but there was no way Dax and Abi were gonna get to hear that before he did. Oh, how I will miss this joyful boy! Truly the bright spot in my week. We love you Evonne and Jason. We are praying for you every day. ❤️

  • Phillip Kercher

    Bradley was such an amazing young man. I never saw him when he wasn’t happy and smiling despite his challenges. It was such a blessing to be able to spend Saturday mornings with him at Miracle League. During his last game he talked about coming back with the Dodgers next season after the summer break. I won’t forget him, and I know that he will be with us in spirit.

  • Phillip Kercher

    Bradley was always happy and had a smile on his face whenever I saw him. I was blessed to be able to spend so many Saturday mornings with him at Miracle League. During his last game he was talking about coming back for our next season after the summer break. I will always remember Bradley and know that he will be with us in spirit during our next Dodger season.

  • I am a teacher at O’Connor. Bradley put a smile on my face every time I saw him. He was such a sweetheart who would bright up the room with his contagious smile. I will miss seeing him walk through the hallways. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

  • Ellen Stephens

    I too work at O’Connor. Bradley always had a smile and something nice to say every time he came through the office. I loved finding mail for him to deliver to the classrooms. He was a joy to all of us at O’Connor and will be sadly missed.

  • David Hendrickson

    Words cannot describe what a special guy Bradley was to me. About 4 1/2 years ago Coach Jim at the Miracle League said let’s try pitching to Bradley and he had a system worked out for when Bradley would swing. On the 3rd ball I pitched…Bradley hit it. The smile on his face as he ran around the bases was priceless and something I will never forget. Over the next 4 years he had to hit off a tee less than a handful of times…it was never because of a bad swing, it was bad pitching on my part. I’ll never forget his smile every time he hit the ball and his laughter when he hit me in the legs or stomach with his hit….which I might add was from our normal pitching distance…not up close. I’ll miss Bradley and pitching to him every Saturday at the Miracle League. I’ll never forget his singing take me out to ballgame at our field and at the Cubs Spring Training games every year. Rest In Peace Bradley. Coach Dave

  • Jason and family–so sorry to hear of your loss. Unfortunately, I never had the pleasure of meeting Bradley–but I know we would have had fun when you said he is a Cubs fan too! I will not be so presumptuous to say I know how you are feeling, but will say I believe your faith will help get you through this very difficult time. Barb and I send our prayers your way. RIP Bradley. Barb & Jim Foster

  • Darian & Jayce Darling

    Our hearts are heavy for you in this heard time. He was an amazing little man and always had such a positive impact on his friends around him. I am blessed to have known him, and for my child to have him apart of his life. I pray that you and your family find peace. We will miss him and his smile at school everyday.
    All our love to you and your family.
    The Darling Family
