Dr. Bradley "Lee" Daley, Jr., 68, of Inman passed away Thursday, October 12, 2017 at Spartanburg Regional Hospice Home. Born in Pensacola, Florida, Lee was the son of Mary McDearman Daley and the late Bradley Lee Daley.
After graduating from the US Naval Academy in 1971 with a degree in aerospace engineering, he served as a Lieutenant in the US Navy and simultaneously obtained his commercial pilot’s license. He then worked at Lockeed Martin as an engineer, but stayed busy taking night classes, playing golf and dancing in the Charleston Ballet. Embarking on a new career, he attended Medical University of South Carolina, earning his medical degree in 1985. Together he and his wife completed their pediatric residency at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida. In 1991 the family settled in Spartanburg. He was a pediatrician in the Spartanburg community for 25 years with the last few dedicated to helping children with ADHD. In his free time, he was an avid golfer and reader, enjoyed volunteering with First Tee at Woodfin Ridge, and was passionate about baking. His desserts will be sorely missed at family gatherings. Lee also loved all types of music and played the banjo, guitar and violin. He was a Renaissance man who always challenged himself intellectually and loved his family, golf and his country.
In addition to his wife of 34 years, Dr. Luci Daley, Lee is survived by his mother, his son, Bradley Neal Daley, his daughter, Sarah Megan Daley, and his four siblings: a brother, Bill Daley, and sisters Jane Duke, Lynn Landt, and Ann Meller.
The family will receive friends 6:00-8:00pm Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at Bobo Funeral Chapel. The memorial service will be a small intimate gathering.
