Willis C. Bradshaw Feb. 11, 1929 - Aug. 19, 2015 NEW CARLISLE - Willis Condon Bradshaw Sr., 86, of New Carlisle, Indiana, passed away at home with his loving family by his side on the evening of Wednesday, August 19, 2015. Willis was born on February 11, 1929, in Royalton, IL, to the late Griff and Leona (Harris) Bradshaw. He had lived in the New Carlisle/South Bend area since 1962. Willis served a few years in the United States Air Force, military police. He worked at Liberty Petroleum and Bethlehem Steel before retiring. On April 18, 1949, in Tupelo, Mississippi, Willis was united in marriage to the love of his life, Anita Charlene Underwood. They shared 61 years of marriage until Anita's passing on February 22, 2011. Willis is survived by his loving sons, Willis "Butch" Bradshaw Jr. of Granger, IN, and Dick (Shelley) Bradshaw of New Carlisle, IN. Willis is also survived by his daughter-in-law, Shai Kincaid Bradshaw of South Bend, IN; and his sister, Omedia Cox of Illinois. Willis, better known as "Pop" to many, took great pride in his family, particularly his six surviving grandchildren, Terra (Barry) Yakim, Casey Bradshaw, Bradley (Kelley) Bradshaw, Brooklyn (Erik) Mrozinski, Bryan (Amber) Bradshaw, and Brittany Bradshaw; along with his eight surviving great-grandchildren, Corey Kovatch, Zachary and Caitlyn Yakim, Layne McNeil, Lucas and Caleb Bradshaw, and Noah and Beau Bradshaw.

Pop was one of a kind. He was a simple man. We will miss his strength, determination, and most of all his stubborn personality. Pop was a family man who enjoyed visits from his family and friends. Pop enjoyed the outdoors, hunting with his sons and grandsons, filling his great grandchildren up with soda and honey buns, and taking care of his yard. Pop's grass was always cut to perfection. He enjoyed talking about Westerns, farming, hunting, the daily activities of his loved ones lives, and the accomplishments and achievements of his grandchildren. A special thank you to Pop's hospice nurse, Lorie Cowgill, for taking exceptional care of Pop for the past couple of months and the support she provided to our family. Per Pop's wishes, there will be no visitation. There will be a private military burial service held at a later date at St. Joseph Valley Memorial Park, Granger, Indiana. Donations in memory of Willis C. Bradshaw Sr. may be made to the Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, 111 Sunny-brook Court, South Bend, IN 46637.
