Larry Bradshaw, age 64, of Breckenridge, passed away Friday, August 14, 2020. A memorial service for Larry will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, August 22, at Morehart Mortuary with Rev. Tom Moore officiating.

Larry Lynn Bradshaw was born January 20, 1956, in Seminole, Texas, to Floyd Alfred Bradshaw and Floyellar (Floy) Ashworth Bradshaw. He graduated from Abilene High School and later worked as a pipeline welder and inspector where he met many friends through the years. Larry married Beatrice Sue Garvin on January 30, 2006, in Houston. He was a member of the ELKS Lodge # 1480. Larry loved playing cornhole. He had his own cornhole family, Boss Hogg Cornhole, that referred to him as “Big Dog”. Larry also enjoyed playing guitar, playing golf, singing and dancing. In fact, he’d sing and dance, even when no one was around, or at least he thought no one was around. He enjoyed entertaining others, usually while grilling or cooking up some crawfish. He had a drive to be the best at whatever he was doing. Larry would do anything to help anyone and was the best neighbor, always lending a helping hand when it was needed. He was very talented and could build anything and actually built their home from the ground up and continued to build onto it and change things up as needed or desired. Larry loved to show off his handy work to everyone! He taught many people many things and enjoyed teaching. Larry had a talent for pulling wrapped peppermints out of his ears for his grandkids, or at least they believed he could. He had funny sayings and a skip in his step that was so memorable, but difficult to duplicate. Larry was full of life and lived it to the fullest. There is no one like Larry Bradshaw….

He was definitely one of a kind! He was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd and Floy Bradshaw; one brother, Harold Wayne Bradshaw; and, two sisters, Ginger Elliott and Linda Little.

Larry is survived by his wife and love of his life, Beatrice Sue Bradshaw; his children, Misty and WT Miller, Misty and Will Langley, Rick Jr. and Allison Rader, Kimberly Bradshaw and Cody Lawson, Randi Bradshaw and Michael Morris, and Russell Bradshaw and Cassie Leigh; one brother, Raymond Williams; one sister, Sharon Bassinger; his grandchildren, Kenzie Bell, Shelly and Josh Rice, Kellen Rader, Jewels Langley, Samantha Lausch, and Abigail Lausch; his great-grandchild, Kelsey Rice; and many wonderful friends.

The family requests that in place of flowers, memorials may be made to the ELKS Lodge #1480 and may be left at Morehart Mortuary. Condolences may be made online at
