Bradshaw, Joseph Allan
Joseph Allan Bradshaw, age 95, Halifax, passed away peacefully on September 10, 2015, at Camp Hill Veterans Memorial Building. Born in Hampton, NB, on March 5, 1920, he was the only son of the late William and Ethel (Yeomans) Bradshaw. Joe grew up in St. Martins, NB, and after the outbreak of World War II, joined the New Brunswick 8th Hussars in Sussex, NS. He served overseas in England, the Central Mediterranean, North West Europe and was one of the Holland liberators. After the war, he returned to Canada and settled in Halifax where he married his wife Winnifred (Pollock) whom he had met in Sussex before the war. He and Winnie made their home in Armdale where they lived for over 60 years and where they raised their family. Early in the 1950’s, Joe and Winnie ran a small grocery store until he retired in 1976. Joe and Winnie had many bridge playing friends in Halifax and in Florida where they spent 25 winters. They also traveled extensively throughout Canada and the United States often taking many side trips on their journeys to and from Florida. After Winnie’s death in 2010, Joe continued to reside in Armdale until moving to Camp Hill in 2012.
