NEWBURGH, Ind. — George T. Bradshaw Jr., of Newburgh, Ind., completed his journey on earth on February 16, 2011, at 80 years old. He was born February 4, 1931, in Chicago, Ill.
He retired in Dec. 1991. He first worked at Servel, Red Bird, Whirlpool and Arkla/Preway/Domectic. As a young boy he was a caddie at the Country Club and worked as an usher at the Victory Theater.
George was gifted with working with wood. After he retired, he built a nice storage building at his house, the majority of it, he built by himself. George also made crafts for Christmas, family and friends, along with Connie helping George to make many things for the craft shops where they had a craft booth. He loved the challenge of making items that were complicated and required skill and time to create the finished crafts.
He truly loved his wife, Consuelo (Connie) very much along with his family and grandkids while watching them grow up over the years.
George had a wonderful sense of humor. He was delightful and always smiling. He always made people feel comfortable to be around him, and had a special talent to make people feel so comfortable. George was a very special person and is going to be greatly missed. George was walking and driving until the end.
He accepted the Lord when he was very ill in the hospital in 1995. Thanks to his wonderful, loving wife, Connie, she fed George through a feeding tube for one year 24/7. George lived for 16 more years because of his angel, Connie. They are truly soul-mates, in love and happy from the day they met.
George was preceded in death by his parents, Emily (1995) and George Bradshaw Sr. (1993); his youngest son, Tab Bradshaw (2005); step-daughter, Marlene McKinney (2003); brother, Kenny Bradshaw (1992); and first wife, Louise Bradshaw (1991).
George is survived by his wonderful, loving, caring wife and angel, Consuelo Bradshaw. George truly loved his wife, Consuelo. He told her daily, "You are truly my angel. If I could marry you today, I would marry you all over again. I love you so much, Connie, I don't want to live without you. You are my angel. As long as I have my Connie, I have everything."
He is also survived by a step-daughter, Cheryl McCormick; grandchildren, Tabitha, Kayla, LaDonna, Eric, Greg Jr. and Jason; great-granddaughters, Cloe and Mirandi "Little Bitty Buddy"; sister, Billie Jo Ledcke; nephew, Kevin; and nieces, Jessica, Kimberly and Missy.
We love you and we'll miss your smile that started our day.
