On Aug. 6, 2010, CAMERON ALEXANDER BRADBURY, 24, passed from this place into the arms of a loving God. At last, he found peace after a long battle with substance addiction. He leaves a loving family and many friends with fond memories of the many wonderful qualities he had as a son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend. Cameron was born and raised in Little Rock and graduated from Episcopal Collegiate School in 2005. He attended Wofford College in South Carolina, where he was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order. At the time of his death, he was a student at Kennesaw State University in Georgia. He was a certified fitness and physical trainer. His family recalls a sweet, kind and gentle Cameron. He treated all, young and old, with polite respect. Cameron enjoyed hunting, his pets, his writing and his music. He had finished one novel and was close to finishing his second. He left a stack of short stories for all to enjoy. He had many fun and memorable times with his family on Greers Ferry Lake at Eden Isle, at the duck club and on family vacations. Cameron will be missed by all who knew him. The family hopes his legacy includes a message that addiction is a powerful disease that destroys lives, and that those who suffer from this disease should acknowledge the illness and seek recovery. Cameron is survived by his parents, Charlotte (Chucki) and Curtis F. Bradbury Jr. of Little Rock; brothers Spencer (London, England) and Curt III; grandmothers Colleen Bornhoft (Little Rock) and Betty Bradbury (Little Rock); aunts and uncles, Pattie Butler (Fayetteville), Cathy and Tony Bornhoft (Bentonville), LaDonna and Ray Bornhoft (Fayetteville), Ralph Bradbury (Little Rock) and Lee Ann Bradbury (Little Rock); and cousins Rachel Bradbury, Ralph Bradbury Jr., Sara Butler, George Harrison Butler IV, Anthony Bornhoft III, Mike Bornhoft, Olivia Bornhoft, James Dollar Bornhoft, and Jack Ryan Bornhoft.
