Allen Stanley Bradshaw

Allen Stanley Bradshaw was taken home when his heart stopped beating on Monday, Sept. 23, 2019.
Born to Milton Bert Bradshaw and Mildred Bernice Bain on June 6, 1937, in Medford, Oregon, Allen spent his younger years growing up in Klamath Falls and Oakridge. He later moved to Creswell in 1955, where he resided for 44 years.
In high school, he was chosen senior prom king and was awarded the district offensive and defensive football player of the year in 1957.
Allen worked for Cone Lumber Company on the green chain and as a debarker in Goshen for 14 years. Afterward, he went on to start his own landscaping business where he worked for 30 years until he retired in 2003.
Allen has been married to his sweetheart, Mary Kay Lozier, for the last 52 years and they raised four children together: Kathryn Bradshaw, Tamra Bilderback (Pratt), Susan Bilderback (Cummings) and Richard Bradshaw. Daughter Anita Bilderback preceded him in death.
Upon retirement, Allen and Mary moved to Troutdale, where they resided for the last 16 years. He attended the Good Shepherd Church for 13 years and volunteered at the Salvation Army twice a week.
Allen had the ability to work hard and loved a great many things. He was a particularly avid University of Oregon football fan, old car enthusiast, regular Timpanogos Storytelling Festival attendee, master gardener and a deeply religious man.
He was a dedicated cheerleader during his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events and cultural performances. We will miss our happy-go-lucky father, who was quick to make jokes about his own shortness, baldness and quirky ways.
The funeral was held on Sept. 27 at Musgrove Mortuaries.
