John Bradford “Brad” Clapham – 11/1/1946 to 3/5/2016 “A Life Well Lived” At 6:15 PM on Saturday night, surrounded by family, Brad’s soul went directly to the presence of God. Optimistic and Strong to the very end, his 19 month battle with Liver cancer is over. Brad grew up in Westerville and after a tour in Korea with the National Guard, started his long career with Ohio Bell. He found success both professionally and personally at Ohio Bell, AT&T, Lucent Technologies and finally Avaya. After retiring from Avaya, but not really wanting to retire, he continued doing what he had always done with NACR, a distributor of Avaya equipment. Brad finally retired for good 2 years ago and spent time between his Florida and Ohio homes. In his last stage of life, he married his longtime girlfriend Shelly Selva. In addition to Shelly, his memory will be carried on through his son Shane (Michelle) Clapham, 3 granddaughters, Chaney, Chloe and Cassidy, his brother Rick (Pam) Clapham, nephew Jason Clapham, sister Tami (David) Bolich, nephew Alan Bolich and 2 step-daughters, Ashley and Blair Selva. There are few lives that Brad didn’t touch in a positive way. He was truly loved and respected by all that knew him. Friends may call at the MORELAND FUNERAL HOME, 55 E. Schrock Road, Westerville, Tuesday from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday at Jersey Baptist Church, 13260 Morse Road, New Albany, OH 43054.
