Charles “Charlie” Ernest Bradshaw was born on January 3, 1950, in Poplar Bluff, Missouri to Robert and Flossie Bradshaw. He passed away on March 4, 2022, in Plano, Texas.

Charlie graduated from Jacksonville High School in 1968. He went on to earn his technical certificate in Electronics in 1978. He enjoyed a longtime career in electronics and finished the last 30 years at Micro Technology Services, Inc. until his retirement in 2021.

Charlie married the love of his life and best friend, Marina, on September 3, 1994. They remained united until his transition.

Charlie enjoyed many hobbies - playing music, reading, fishing, and repairing musical instruments. He was a food and drink enthusiast. After teaching himself how to play the guitar, he went on for many years to play with some of his closest friends in the High Cotton Band and Home Brew Band.

Charlie will be fondly remembered for his patient, sweet, artistic, funny, and soft-spoken nature. His loving spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved him. 

Charlie was preceded in death by his parents, son Robbie, and brother Steve. Those left to cherish sweet memories of Charlie include his loving wife Marina, son Corey and wife Erin, daughter Michelle “Nikkie” and husband Clint, son Michael and wife Lynnette, daughter Miranda, sister Pat and husband Eddie, brother-in-law Bill and wife Liping, niece and nephews Holly, Eric, Jeff, and Eric, 13 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, along with many other loving relatives and friends.
