grandchildren, Amy, Ashley and JW Bradshaw; sisters,
Bernice Luck, Lori Adams and Joyce Call and numerous
nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his
wife of nineteen years, his parents, brothers Robert and

Eb retired from Bastrop County Precinct 2 after 27 years
as a maintainer operator and continued working with his
cattle until his health failed. One of his greatest joys
was a good domino game which he generally won, family
fox hunting with his beagles and hounds, and squirrel hunting.
Eb was especially proud of the fact he successfully reared
his two sons as a single parent following his wife's passing.
He will be fondly remembered as an individual who always
was willing to help others.
