FRANKLIN -- Bradford J. Franklin, 51 was called home to the Lord on March 17, 2007. Our beloved father, son, brother and friend was born in Watertown, NY and came to live in Albuquerque when his father was stationed at Kirtland when it was an Army Post. He attended Highland High School and enlisted into the Army in 1972. He retired out of Fort Gordon, GA and recently moved back to Albuquerque to be closer to his family. He is survived by his loving mother, Lilly Chiyoko Okabe Schnell of Tijeras NM; his loving son, Raymond John Franklin of Sacramento CA; loving sisters, Ruth Franklin Anglin and her husband, Perry Anglin of Tijeras NM, and Sharon Franklin Heflin and her husband, Lance Heflin of Warrensburg MO; nephew, Thomas Ryan Reynolds of Anchorage, AK; niece, Ashley Reynolds Zamora and her husband, Alfonso Zamora of Albuquerque; niece, Whitney Morgan Heflin of Warrensburg, MO; and niece, Fallon Nicole Heflin of Warrensburg MO; Michael and Susan Shealy of Augusta, GA; as well as many more dear family and friends in Texas, Georgia, and California. Brad traveled the world through his career with the United States Army and was a veteran of Desert Storm with the 1st Calvary Division. He was described as "One of the most highly motivated NCOs I've had the pleasure to serve with. His professionalism both technically and tactically were well above his pay grade. He could be counted on to make things happen and demonstrated that no job was to difficult to handle." His friends and family will miss the laughter he often brought to our hearts. His practical jokes and sometimes "warped" sense of humor will be remembered by many. He was a rock that many leaned upon as he always had a lending hand to give and a ready ear to listen. When he passed he had a genuine love of Christ that was a witness for all. His family thanks all that have helped during this grievous loss, his time was short but we're blessed with the time the Lord let us borrow him. Graveside service is set for 2:00 p.m. Thursday March 22, 2007 at Santa Fe National Cemetery. Arrangements have been entrusted to Aspen Funeral Alternatives. In lieu of flowers, and because he was born to be a soldier, memorial contributions may be made to any Veterans organization in the name of Bradford J. Franklin.

In 1959, he was named President of the National Automobile Dealers Association, and was originator and Chairman of the Dealer Election Action Committee and was inducted into the U.S. Automotive Hall of Fame. He was instrumental in the creation of the "Monroney" sticker law for honest price disclosure and was named Dealer of the Year by Time Magazine. Herbert, or "Hickum," as he was known by friends and family, enjoyed a lifetime career of service to his family, his employees, his industry and his state. Mr. Galles was inducted into the New Mexico Sports Hall of Fame, and was a former President of the UNM Lobo Club. He was Chairman of the committee originally responsible for building the Albuquerque Sports Stadium, as well as Chairman of the Board of PNM and of the Bank of New Mexico.

He was awarded the Zimmerman award by UNM, and was a lifetime member of the UNM Boosters Club and the Varsity Letterman's Club. Mr. Galles' love of life was evidenced by his recovery from a recent stroke, his desire to continue working and his pride in attending Lobo home football games. There were no gray areas in Hickum's life - he never compromised character, honesty or a job well done. Respected by his competitors and manufacturers alike, in terms of character and serenity, he was remarkable in every sense of the word. He was a great man, and treated everyone he met with friendship and dignity. Rumor has it that Hickum met his wife, Fern, at a football game in 1934, after a rare win over the University of Arizona.
