Bradley J. DeConinck Mroczka
ROCHESTER - February 29, 2020
Music was Bradley's fondest memories of his teen years. He would often talk about the different bands he formed and the thrill of playing out at places like Milestone and the Penny Arcade. He was a prolific song writer.
Bradley was a tattoo artist. He would accept no other career. The year he opened the doors to his own tattoo studio was a dream come true. He put a lot of time and care into his studio, his renovations even impressed the landlord.
The day Bradley got his motorcycle license was one of the greatest days for him. He loved the freedom he felt while riding. He was inseparable from his Harley Davidson. Every time he took off the motorcycle cover, he would give his bike a hug before heading out for a ride. The completion of his first triathlon was very special to him. It was the culmination of all his training and sparked his desire to continue training, to push himself harder, to do even better.
As a tattoo artist, Bradley spent a lot of time honing his drawing and lettering skills. He also loved to paint, whether it be on a canvas, a wall, or a store window. Bradley enjoyed building models whether it be cars, motorcycles or airplanes. They were always unique builds. There was one time where he downloaded the blueprints for an actual world war I airplane and built a scaled replica. This led to building RC airplanes starting with a design utilizing foam from the Dollar Tree. He enjoyed building the airplanes. However, flying them proved challenging. They often did not make it back home in one piece. Bradley participated in triathlons and 5K races. He would go to the gym nearly every day to train. His training included boxing and martial arts as well.
Music was a big part of Bradley's life He enjoyed anything from jazz, classical, heavy metal and speed metal. He would often go to YouTube and pick out songs to play for motivation to start the day off. Bradley loved TV shows on astronomy, he had a fascination with the stars, galaxies, black holes, planets and moons. Movies were something that, if Bradley felt connected to it, he would watch numerous times. Purchasing movies on DVD was not practical, the discs would get worn out from use. Pizza and NASCAR on Sundays was a must. He called it "NapCAR" because, inevitably, he would fall asleep during the race.
Bradley was habitual. Never a morning would go by without hearing him say "Welcome to the new day!". Never an evening would go by without hearing him say "I love you!" He had quite the engineering mind, but always squeezed the toothpaste tube from the center. Not once did he replace a roll of toilet paper so you could pull from the top. He loved teddy bears. Every Valentine's day, he would get so excited for the next bear to add to the collection. Bradley was very energetic, very loving, extremely caring, extremely talented, and very creative
A measure of a person's impact on your life is the void left behind when they are gone. The loss of Bradley leaves behind an enormous void that will never be filled.
