Virginia Beach —Bradley Osman, of Virginia Beach and formerly of Hampton, passed away unexpectedly in his home.

The son of the late Carolyn Osman and the late Stanley Harris, and adopted son of the late Charles Osman, Bradley struggled with mental illness, which robbed him of contentment and a fulfilling life.

However, his classic good looks, easy, self-effacing manner, and utter brilliance endeared him to many. Bradley attended the University of Virginia, he was a highly valued volunteer at an Israeli kibbutz for many years, and he was a fixture on the Virginia Beach oceanfront for more than a quarter century, befriending and charming countless visitors and residents alike.

Bradley is survived by two brothers, Louis Osman and his wife Sheila Steinbach of Teaneck, New Jersey and Michael Osman, as well as nieces, Yael and Hannah Osman of Teaneck.

Bradley will be dearly missed, but all who knew him hope he has finally found peace.

A graveside service was held at Forest Lawn Cemetery with Rabbi Marc Kraus officiating. H.D. Oliver Funeral Apts. Online condolences may be made to the family at
