Dennis Bradley of Pallmann Passes Away

It is with sadness that we report the recent passing of Dennis Bradley, a Pallmann territory manager. Dennis passed away peacefully with family by his side after a short but courageous battle with cancer.

Dennis began his career with the Pallmann brand in 2016 after 25 plus years in the hardwood floor industry working in various roles ranging from contracting, sales, and training. An avid enthusiast of cooking BBQ, Dennis was always in pursuit of the “perfect cook.” Constantly observing, learning, asking others for input on how to achieve this personal milestone. Along the journey he was always willing to share his own knowledge and passion of BBQ to help others achieve their own “perfect cook.” Dennis took the passion of striving for excellence into his daily life and wood floor industry sharing with contractor’s tips, techniques, and methods learned along the travels throughout his region; in hopes of bettering distributors, contractors, and the wood floor industry.

Dennis would never back down from a healthy discussion and always shared his opinions in a respectful manner that was designed to challenge us all to strive for excellence. It was the quiet and compassionate side of Dennis however that left an impression on many throughout the years. After learning that one of his customers was hit by a devastating Tornado, Dennis and his wife quietly packed up a trailer full of water, chainsaws, and other supplies showing up unannounced on the doorstep of the customer with an outstretched hand and a full heart.

Whether it was BBQ spices showing up randomly in the mail as a gift, an invitation to go fishing, or simply a helping hand on a jobsite, Dennis had a selfless heart that touched many and will be deeply missed by all.

  1. Definitely one of the nicest people you’d ever hope to meet and have fill part of your life. Always appreciated Dennis’ input, his willingness to jump right in and lend a hand, and his thoughtfulness – as outlined above – that would always come out of the blue when most needed. A southern gentleman, and great BBQ wizard, through and through. Rest in Peace, Dennis………….

  2. Dennis was a great man. As a young buck in the industry he did a lot for me in my career. Dennis was one of the few people who was ready to jump in and help me with anything I needed. A good man was lost, and a good contractor was lost. Dennis meant a lot to me and I cannot express my gratitude towards him as a human. Pallmann, and the hardwood industry lost a phenomenal part of what we are all trying to accomplish. I’m so grateful I was able to know him. He will be missed in my household, and im sure a lot of others.
