Bo Bradshaw Family Fund
On Friday, December 2nd, we lost a good friend and skilled reenactor, Bo Bradshaw. Bo was a friend to many, and he always offered a willing and helping hand to all, whether old friends or new reenactors just getting their start. His measured even natured advice was always given with kindness, and he openly shared the benefits of his experiences.
Bo, a Navy veteran, enjoyed reenacting in many different time periods including Pirate era, Civil War, French and Indian War, and Mountain Man. He participated in events across the state and into Illinois, from the Daniel Boone Home in Defiance, MO, to Fort de Chartres Historic Site in IL, Pomme de Terre, Missouri Rendezvous, and events held at Fort Osage near Kansas City, MO. Bo was talented and tough, equal to any task/skill he explored or might be asked to perform.
We ache from his loss and for the pain of his family at his sudden passing. Bo's memorial service will be held from 4-7 pm Saturday, Dec. 17, at the American Legion Hall #217 in Warsaw, MO. Reenactors, please feel free to dress out in your historic clothes as appropriate.
This GoFundMe drive has been set-up for all those who knew Bo and would like to show your appreciation for his unfailing kindness and friendship to offer comfort to his family. This drive has been approved by Bo's widow, Jenn Bradshaw. All proceeds from this fund raising effort are given directly to Jenn to benefit their family.
I had not seen Scott for a little over 20 years maybe. As a teen-ager; over a year & half is "golden" for having been spent close to him. I'm struck with a deep sense of pain for having no chance to 'see him out' or say "good-bye." Scott was the kind of person you'd feel compelled to maintain a spiritual bond with. He's also the extraordinary kind of guy, that you can still feel confident, you'll get the same greeting from when you meet in heaven !
