James grew up living in many places around the country as the son of an Air Force Colonel. An avid body builder and fitness professional, James was a very successful entrepreneur in the health and fitness industry. His talent for marketing and copy writing led to the success of several well known health supplements. He is remembered in part for his exceptional focus, discipline and strong work ethic.
He loved to read and spend time in book stores and libraries. A die-hard Nebraska Corn huskers college football fan, he loved all sports. He also had endless love for his wife Kristy and his step-daughters, as well as his grandson Thatcher Joaquim. His bright, optimistic and intelligent mind are sorely missed by his family, friends and associates. We thank James for his faith in many of us as well as his love for God.
James spent many happy summers in Malden visiting his late grandparents. former Mayor G.H. and Vivien Anderson. He was also the sixth generation of his family to be baptized in the Methodist Church in Malden.
He is survived by his wife Kristy Thatcher Bradshaw, daughters Brandy Joaquim and Mandy Alejandro, mother Judy Anderson Hamby and husband Don of Lenoir, North Carolina, father John Bradshaw and wife Ellen of Colorado Springs, Colorado, brother Kevin Bradshaw, and nephew Austin Bradshaw. He is loved and missed very much. God bless you, James.
