Greg Bradshaw, Age 56, died unexpectedly Monday, Oct. 18, 2021, at his home in Auburn. He was born Sept. 14, 1965, in Decatur, Georgia, the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert A. Bradshaw, Jr. and the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Preston Forth and Mr. and Mrs. Fonso Bradshaw, all of Dublin, Georgia.

Following graduation from Marist School in 1984 he attended Presbyterian College on a football scholarship before graduating from St. Johns College. At Marist, he started lifelong friendships and enjoyed a state championship in wrestling along with being a fullback on a team that played for the state championship in 1983.

Teaching and coaching at Woodward Academy and Brentwood School stimulated his interest in literature and his personal library contains over 500 volumes. There were some high school literary awards that he treasured.

The love for teaching and coaching was overcome by the need for income and this led to entering the restaurant business in 1996. Two very successful restaurants are busy in downtown Auburn. Some core employees were with him for the entire duration. Greg was active as chairman and CEO.

He was active with hobbies including wing hunting in South America, Louisiana, and the family farm in Dublin, Georgia. Many sports interests were enjoyed as he played Rugby worldwide. He followed the Braves, War Eagles and Georgia Bulldogs along with a dozen high school teams. There was still time left for literature.

Greg is survived by his parents Bobby and Betty Jean Bradshaw and brother Robby Bradshaw along with a large group of aunts and uncles as well as many cousins.

There was a funeral service at Saint Dunstan’s Episcopal Church conducted by his minister, Reverend Thomas Joyner at 1 p.m. on Oct.  21 followed by a graveside service at 11 a.m. on Oct. 22 at Dublin Memorial Garden conducted by Reverend Kevin Tanner.

Funeral Services were provided by Jeffcoat-Trant Funeral Home and Crematory in Opelika, Alabama and Stanley Funeral Home in Dublin, Georgia.
