Kevin Lee Bradshaw, 55, of Osage Beach, formerly of Excelsior Springs, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on August 19, 2022.
Kevin was born on August 14, 1967, in Kansas City, Missouri. Kevin graduated in 1985 from Excelsior Springs High School and was a member of the United Methodist Church. As the baby of five boys, Kevin was the one who tested the limits. He was passionate about his family and was always the protector of his twin brother, Keith.
Kevin sold boats at the Lake of the Ozarks for the past ten years and loved every second of it. His lakeside condo was always open to visitors. Kevin enjoyed making memories with his family. Any spare moment he had you would find him outside and he was happy to bring you along. Kevin knew no strangers and everyone was a friend. Besides his family, he most loved fishing and had the photos to back up all the fishing tales. Kevin loved his people and was known as the life of every party because he wanted to ensure everyone had a great time. Kevin loved taking long vacations and was an avid Chiefs fan.
Kevin was preceded in death by his father, Howard Bradshaw, and grandparents, EJ and Frances Smoke and Grover and Mary Bradshaw.
His survivors include his daughter, Brooke (Logan) and granddaughter, Natalie; his mother, Betty; brothers, Tim, Chris (Lynn), Randy (Laurie), and Keith (Renee); nephews and nieces, Jake (Brittany), Leah (Ryan), Eric (Sarah), Kaitlyn, Kyle, Ty, Kaylea, Tad, and Cassidy; along with many cousins, aunts, uncles, great nephews, and great nieces.

Known Kevin long time …..was such a great fun guy ….so sorry for family.
Kevin, I’m going to miss you. We had some great times and I’ll never forget them. I’m one of the few brothers you had that are “A Brother From Another Mother” (And Dad).
I Love you, Richard
He always made MYF trips fun. I always enjoyed talking to Kevin. He could always make everyone laugh but he also had a serious side when we talked about our faith.

Kevin’s love for church, family, and friends was so strong. His home and heart were open to everyone. I will miss him coming to my home every Christmas, no matter where he was. I’ll always picture him laughing while holding a fishing pole. Love you buddy!
