James H. (Jim) Bradshaw went to our Lord on Wednesday, October 22, 2014. Jim was born and raised in Irvington, New Jersey until he joined the United States Air Force and moved to Texas. Here he met and married his sweetheart, Jimmie D. (Dell) Prince. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend.

Jim served as an aircraft mechanic in the Air Force, awarded both a National Defense Service Medal & Good Conduct Medal for his efforts. He later earned his degree from Texas Tech University in Mechanical Engineering and began a dedicated career in the oil and gas industry.

Upon early retirement, Jim's primary focus was caring for his beloved wife until her passing in 2013. He was also a member of the Fourth Degree of the Knights of Columbus and a member of St. Martha Catholic Church for over 35 years. As time allowed, Jim enjoyed spending time with his extended family, building and flying remote control airplanes, watching football, researching Consumer Reports, and walking his four-legged friend, Molly.

Married for almost 60 years, he is preceded in death by his wife, Dell, and is survived by his children (and spouses), Lynn (Christopher), Catherine (Mark), Christi (John), Marian (Dan), James E. (Melanie); grandchildren (and spouses), April (Rob), Jason (Stacy), Jenny (Neal), Kathleen (Parker), Lisa, Stacey (Bill), Daniel (Elaine), Nikki (Jeremy), Allison and Austin; and great-grandchildren, Jacob, Nathan, Kayleigh, Leah, Luke, Avery, Aiden, Bryson, Landon and Jaxon.

A Mass of resurrection to celebrate Jim's life will be held at 10:00 a.m., Thursday, November 6, 2014 at St. Martha Catholic Church, 4301 Woodridge Parkway, Porter, TX 77365.
