Jim was born in Carrsville, VA on September 8, 1954, and was preceded in death by his parents, Joel Clinton Bradshaw and Hazel Butler Bradshaw.  He was educated in the Isle of White school system and then continued his studies at Paul D. Camp College before beginning what would be a long career in grocery and retail stores. 

Outside of work, Jim’s passion was his involvement in Scouting.  One of five brothers, Jim was raised in a scouting family that led to lifelong service.  After achieving the rank of Eagle, Jim received additional honors including the Wood Badge, District Award of Merit, God and Service Award, Wateree District Commissioner Emeritus Award, the Silver Torch Award, and the Silver Beaver Award.

His love of sports and people led to involvement in the local Pickleball league which became one of his favorite pastimes during retirement.  Jim was also an active member of the Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church.

He is survived by his wife, Pam Bradshaw, son Gavin (Rebekah), Tim Newman, Tracy West (Shannon), and 5 grandchildren:  Rebecca Newman, David Newman, William Newman, Hampton West, and Elizabeth West.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church or Boy Scouts of America.
