Justin William Bradfield, age 11, died Monday, October 31, 2011, at the Waverly Health Center in Waverly due to injuries sustained in a bus accident.
Justin was born on April 22, 2000, in Waterloo, Iowa, the son of Ryan and Kim (Pagel) Bradfield. He was raised in rural Janesville and attended the Janesville Middle School to the 6th Grade. Justin was an honor student and his other school activities included choir, baseball, and band.
Justin was also a member of Cub Scouts Pack 103 of Janesville, where he had earned his arrow of light and a member of (theRock) youth group at Prairie Lakes Church in Cedar Falls . He loved collecting things whether it was cardboard, paper towel rolls or other trinkets around the house and then he would use his artistic abilities and tape to make things out of them. Justin was always concerned about what others were doing and would ask twenty questions until he found what they were up to.
Justin's enjoyments included playing trumpet and drums, drawing, art, making signs, woodworking, shooting his BB gun, reading comics, video games, and America's Funniest Home Video's, but his greatest enjoyment was candy. He will always be known as the kid with bright gleaming eyes that was always smiling.
Justin's memory is honored by his parents, Ryan and Kim Bradfield of Janesville; two brothers, Brayden and Cade Bradfield, both of Janesville; his maternal grandparents, Joseph and Kay Pagel of Waverly; paternal grandparents, Carol Bradfield of Denver and Bill and Noreen Bradfield of Cedar Falls; great grandmother, Helen Plotz of Marengo; three aunts, Kathy (RJ) Hennings of Tripoli, Karen Geerts of Nashua, and Stephanie Bradfield of Denver; one uncle, Josh (Shayla) Schilling of New Sharon; and six cousins, Makenzie and Tegan Briddle, Brandon and Adam Hennings, and Addison and Breckyn Schilling.
