Bradford Grayson Martin Bonar
Bradford Grayson Martin Bonar, born Feb. 15, 1992, left this world on March 7, 2020.
Bradford loved life and delighted in everything oil patch, cars, trucks, boats, Jeeps, guns and dogs. Brad worked hard, played hard and left this world driving a Jeep, bravely.
Bradford's family includes the love of his life, Ashley Lewis; parents, Bruce and Patti Bonar; siblings Jessica and John Tidwell, Molly and Jonathan Holley, Caleb and Keeli Bonar and Daniel Bonar; nieces and nephews Brooks, Wake, Finley, Bridge, Loch Tidwell, Aria and Boston Holley, Clayton Bonar and Hallie Claire Bonar; grandmother, Martha Martin; and a host of friends and extended family.
Bradford had faith that Jesus is our only hope of salvation. He prayed with his mother in their schoolroom at home in 2004. Adopted twice, once into our family then into the family of God. He lived his faith in kindness to and acceptance of men as and where they were.
Bradford was tough and manly yet playful and sensitive, a beautiful boy who became a man among men. He had a lifelong love of the oil patch. He was driving lease roads and opening gates since he was 14.
At work he was cheerful, effective, innovative, tireless but never too serious. He loved truth and honesty. He was bright, quick to laugh, confident, generous, shockingly transparent, always true, ready to talk, ever our boy, an unexpected gift.
Bradford Grayson Martin Bonar.
A celebration of life will be at 2 p.m. Friday at First United Methodist Church of Ada.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bradford's name to the charity of your choice.

Patti and Bruce, I am so sorry to learn of your son's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you both. It is such a blessing to know that he is with his Savior and you will be with him again. But that doesn't take away the pain of his absence. Take care of each other.

Bradford meant a lot to our family. We didn’t get to spend much time with him but it only takes a minute of being in his presence to understand how special of a person he is. He will be missed.
