[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E24] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING CHARLES HOWARD BRADSHAW ______ HON. H. MORGAN GRIFFITH of virginia in the house of representatives Friday, January 10, 2020 Mr. GRIFFITH. Madam Speaker, I rise to honor Charles Howard Bradshaw, a Fire Department Chief and business owner in Henry County, and his wife Sherri, who died on December 13, 2019. Mr. Bradshaw was a tremendous contributor to Henry County and his presence will be missed. Mr. Bradshaw was president of Triangle Electric Corporation, a privately-owned and operated business since 1965, but had also long served as a first responder. In the 1980s, Mr. Bradshaw was employed with the Fieldale Police Department. Since 2007, he had been Chief of the Horsepasture Volunteer Fire Department. In 2010, he was honored as Outstanding Firefighter for the month of May and Fire Officer of the year. In addition to his business and first responder activities, Mr. Bradshaw served on the Henry County Building Board of Appeal. In 2010, he was recognized for his many years volunteering with Henry County by receiving the Jack Dalton Community Service Award. Charles and Sherri Bradshaw are survived by their daughter, Ashlee Bradshaw (James Hill); son, Michael Bradshaw (Crystal Beckett); sister- in-law, Barbara Bradshaw; grandchildren, Hunter, Logan, Lauren, Rylee, Nikole and Jordan; nephew, Jonathan Bradshaw (Elisha); and several other nieces and nephews. Henry County and the Commonwealth of Virginia were fortunate to have a great volunteer, leader, and businessman in their community. I offer my condolences to the Bradshaw family, the volunteers of the Horsepasture Fire Department, and the people of Henry County on their loss. ____________________
