    • Nickname: Billy
      Per Lem Pendley.
      Billy was the nickname we had for Bradley. His mother died when he was only three years old. Annie Lou (Pendley) Robinson said that she never felt so sorry for anyone as she did Billy when his mother was being buried. She said he picked up a handful of dirt and threw at the men and cried "don't put dirt on my mother". She said no one tried to comfort him. "I wanted to take him in my arms and comfort him", said Mrs. Robinson. Billy was cared for by different ones of the family until his father remarried again, when he was seven years old. When he became of age he joined the Army and went to Japan. On one of his trips home on leave he met his future wife,Marilyn Garmony. In 1996 Billy died after about a months suffering and fighting for his life. The night before his death he said he didn't want to be put on any more life support or be given any more shocks to stabalize his heartbeat. His son Kenneth had stepped out of the room for a few minutes and when he returned he was dead. Some of his children were in the hospital every moment fromthe time he was admitted until he died. Cause of death was a heart attack.

      He and Marilyn had four sons, one named Kenneth, and two daughters. In JAN 2002 all were living.
