Born in Princetown on April 11, 1950 to the late Clifford R. and M. Janet Bradshaw, he was raised on his family's farm and educated at Schalmont High School. He was a great outdoorsman, who was most at ease in the Adirondack Mountains with his tent, canoe and fishing pole. He saw the beauty in nature, often spotting bald eagles or lady's slipper flowers, or staring up at the clouds. A man of musical talent, he loved to strum his guitar, and taught himself how to play several instruments, including drums and the flute. Clifford had a close relationship with God and would give the shirt off his back to a stranger. He loved to make people laugh with his practical jokes and wisecracks. He is survived by three children, Clifford T. (Lori) Bradshaw, Matthew (Sarah) Bradshaw and Sarah (Christopher) Colomello; sisters, Barbara (Galen) Armstrong, Lynda Battaglia and Deborah (George) Bowdish; as well as nine grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
