Fairfax, Va (May 1, 2008)--The Gordon Bradley family has announced that they will celebrate his life at a public memorial service at George Mason Stadium on Friday May 9 at 1:00 p.m. Seating will be in the stands at the stadium on campus where the U.S. National Hall-of-Famer Bradley coached for 16 seasons and remains the most successful soccer coach in George Mason history.

Gordon Bradley, who led the Patriots to six NCAA Tournament appearances, died on Tuesday in Manassas. He was 74 years old. Bradley suffered from Alzheimer's disease for several years.

"George Mason was a special place for Gordon and, our family is truly thankful that Mason is hosting the celebration of his life," son Paul Bradley said. "The 16 years he spent there were some of the happiest years of his life not only because he enjoyed coaching soccer, but because he loved working with students and teaching the game of life."

The Bradley family requests that memorial donations be made to The Gordon Bradley Scholarship Endowment in association with George Mason University. To contribute, call (703) 993-3218 or x3215.
