Bradley Joe Burger, age 53, of Mineral Bluff, passed away Saturday morning, August 31, 2019, at his home.
Bradley was a lifelong resident of Fannin County and a member of First Baptist Church of Blairsville. He was an avid hiker, motorcycle rider and pilot, in fact on most Sunday afternoons after church you could find Bradley at the Blairsville Airport with his friends talking about all things aviation. He had a quiet and unassuming manner and was a kind and compassionate person.
Bradley was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Jake and Willie Mason; and paternal grandparents, Cliff and Edith Burger.
Surviving family members include his parents, Guy and JoAnn Burger of Morganton; ex-wife, Robin Burger of Mineral Bluff; brother and sister-in-law, Bruce Page and Debbie Burger of Roswell, Georgia; and niece, Melissa JoAnn Burger. Many friends and other relatives also survive.
