He was born on September 15, 1969, in Marietta to Gertrude and Charles Roger Bradley.Born and raised in Marietta, Mark graduated from Marietta High School in 1987 and Ohio University in 1991. He played baseball for the Ohio Bobcats, helping the team win the conference championship in 1991 and earned a berth in the NCAA tournament. Mark was a 4-time Hall of Famer (MHS, MOV, OU, and Life). After baseball and graduation, Mark earned a master’s degree in Business Administration in 1998, also from Ohio University. After serving as the 20th president of Peoples Bank, Mark joined Magnum Magnetics in 2010, where another great support group and family was born. Someone once said, “when Mark was here at the bank, we all wanted his job, and now that he’s gone to Magnum, we all want his job.” Mark played a little golf (2-time MCC Club Champion ’11, ’20, that calls for a sure, sure). As a side hustle, Mark broadcasted local high school and college sports on WMOA for 30 years, including being at the mic for 3 National Championships in ’06, ’11, and ’12. He and his wife, Tammi Bradley, have two daughters: Emilee and Gabrielle Bradley.

Mark is also survived by an enormous amount of loving and caring friends. Is he gone? No, no he’s alive and well in all he touched.
