Ara “Eric” Rom of Lowell, MA

Ara Rom, 35, of Lowell, MA died Monday April 19th at his home. Ara was his first name but we all knew him as Eric or E, and sometimes Eazy. He was born in San Jose, CA and always claimed to be a Cali boy, but we all knew he loved his East Coast life. He attended high in California but shortly after moved to Lowell, MA.

Eric loved fishing, and randomly shouted out “fish on” because it was all he thought of especially during the summer months. He loved getting Hyphy, and frequently rocked his “stunna shades.” While he was always the life of the party, he made it his mission to make sure everyone was having as good of a time as he was.

He loved family gatherings and wanted nothing more in life than to have those he loved around him. Eric is the son of the late Saren Thorn and the John Rom. Eric is survived by his older sister Amy Rom of Lowell,MA; who he loved picking on, two younger brothers, Jimmy Rom of Lowell, MA and Jeffrey Rom of Hudson, NH; who he constantly worked to be a role model for. He loved being an uncle to his niece Ashley, two nephews Dayvian and Darius, and many other nieces and nephews from close friends.

He loved to joke, loved to cruise, loved to eat good food, loved to randomly call people just to say “what’s up”, he loved to dance, and most importantly he loved to love.

He will be deeply missed, so often thought about, and very close in our hearts always.
As Eric would say, God bless, stay weird, and stay humble .. Oh and – rice and cheese, bro.

Robert L. (Bob) Bradford Sr. of Chelmsford

Robert L. (Bob) Bradford, Sr., age 93, of Chelmsford, MA, died peacefully in his sleep at home on February 12. Born in Wapakoneta, OH, in 1927, he lived through the Great Depression and served proudly in the Navy during World War II. Mr. Bradford and his first wife Betty spent forty years in Billerica, MA, where they raised a large family while he worked at and eventually retired from Raytheon. Betty’s death after fifty-two years of marriage devastated him, but after several years he met and married Theresa (Benoit) Bradford, his wife for the last fourteen years. He will be missed mightily and remembered lovingly by his wife, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends. His family would like to thank the home health aides that helped care for him this past year with grace and genuine concern.

Smart, funny, modest, and kind, with a quiet strength and dignity, Bob enjoyed simple pleasures. He delighted in telling jokes (according to family lore he perfected, and perhaps invented, the “Dad joke”), summering in Scituate, golfing (into his eighties), watching the Red Sox, working in the garden, fixing cars, playing cards with his kids and grandkids, taking the occasional casino trip (where he played a mean game of blackjack), getting the best bargains at the grocery store (and then telling everyone his successful strategy), and, most of all, spending time with and helping his family and friends, for whom he would do anything. A devout Catholic, Bob was a regular mass attendee at St. Andrew’s in Billerica. His family was extensive: His long and loving marriage to the late Elizabeth (O’Hare) Bradford, blessed him with their ten children, twenty-two grandchildren, and seven (and counting) great grandchildren.

He leaves behind his wife Theresa (Benoit) Bradford, of Chelmsford; his children and their spouses, Joseph A. and Carol (Goldthwait) Bradford of Plymouth, Mary Anne (Bradford) and Mike McCarthy of Oley, PA, David R. and Jean (Crawford) Bradford of Grafton, John D. Bradford of Wakefield, Richard W. and Kim (Cartier) Bradford of Seabrook, NH, Christopher O. and Martha (McCray) Bradford of Tolland, Conn., Robert L. (Jr.) and Lynn (Pendergast) Bradford of Littleton, Jeffrey P. Bradford and Georgia Kritselis of Wilmington, Paul J. and Carla (Mond) Bradford of Bedford, and Margaret L. Bradford and her fiance Paul Roche of Billerica; his daughter-in-law Alice (Howard) Bradford of Shrewsbury; and his brother William Bradford of Fort Lauderdale, FL. In addition to his first wife Elizabeth, he was pre-deceased by his brother Richard Bradford of IN and his sister Rosemary (Bradford) Best of OH.

Funeral arrangements are not finalized at this time. A funeral mass and celebration of life service will be held at some point in late summer or during the fall. Please check back on the Dolan Funeral Home (Chelmsford, MA) website this summer for updated information. In lieu of flowers, we encourage a donation to Prevent Blindness of Chicago, IL, or another vision preservation research charity. ARRANGEMENTS BY DOLAN FUNERAL HOME
