Interview About Grandpa

Contributor: dmullinnix Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

My grandfather, on my mom’s side, is named Tex Kline Bradford. He was born in Blanding, Utah to Sylvester and Thora Bradford. He loved ice cream, but later became diabetic. He loved my grandmas breaded steak and liked eating crackers in milk. The way he met my grandma was when she was renting a room from one of grandpas aunts. After grandpas divorce from his first wife, he went over to his aunts with a friend, and his aunt called to my grandma and said “Luelma, there's someone I want you meet!” Grandpa’s friend said "one of us should marry that girl", and grandpa did. He lost his job at one point in his life, forcing my grandma to go back to work. Later, he worked at Kenecott Copper Mine as a foreman. Each Christmas, they had their family Christmas program. Each member in the family played a part in reenacting Christ’s birth. Each Christmas Eve, they opened one gift (usually an exchanged gift). Everyone slept downstairs Christmas Eve, and came upstairs in the morning oldest to youngest. They usually had a party Christmas day with the Howell family (next door neighbors) and had dinner with them. Sometimes during the summer, they had homemade root beer, sleep outside, and grandma would make rolls and Sister Howell made sloppy joes. Growing up, my mom remembers their house as a “little yellow brick home on a dead end street in the best neighborhood ever”. Grandpa loved taking the family camping. They often went on trips to Canada, or up on a mountain to a Brodrick family reunion campout. One time they went camping in Yellowstone when a bear got into their box of food and “ate their biscuits!” Grandpa always thought religion to be very important. He stressed the importance in working hard, being responsible in church callings, and doing your best. Grandpa was involved in WWII near the end. He was in Italy, and had a job guarding German prisoners of war. Grandpa was known for his love for his family (which was always very important to him), his testimony of the gospel, hard work, honesty, and trust. For better or worse, grandpa was also known for his colorful language (although this stopped once he was bed-ridden). He also had a temper, yet he was fiercely protective of wife and family (his kids did NOT mouth off to their mother). Grandpa loved dogs. All of his life he had dogs, usually medium sized. His favorites were my mom’s dog Twinkie, and his dog Chubby Checkers. The thing that finally killed my grandpa was pneumonia, although he had been suffering from diabetes and Parkinson's disease before he died. The night before he died, my mom went over to visit them. She remembers my grandpa asking about all the grandkids (he worried that they were ok) and told my mom how much he loved her.

Tex Kline Bradford was 15 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Tex Kline Bradford was 37 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.

Tex Kline Bradford was 46 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
