Obituary for Donald Hugh Brady, Jr.

Donald Hugh Brady Jr., 82, of Brookfield, NY passed away on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at The Lutheran Home in Clinton, NY, surrounded by his loved ones after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. He was born on June 11, 1936 in Utica, NY, son of the late Donald H. Brady, Sr. and Carmelia Mae Vivyan. He was educated and graduated from Oriskany Falls High School. At one time, he was married to Shirley Kimball with whom he had four children.
A hard worker, he was employed by Armour Meats, Mohawk Frozen Foods and Smith Packing as a truck driver. His driving career was cut short by blindness. Later he worked for the Association for the Blind of Central NY, often hitching rides from various friends to get to work from Brookfield to Utica. Most recently he worked in the recycling center at Reilly’s Dairy in Sauquoit. In addition to his regular full-time jobs, Mr. Brady was an avid entrepreneur; always having a business venture or adventure for spare time and weekends to earn more money for his family.
In June 1976, he married Carol McCoy White. Together they formed Brady Enterprises, selling fish from their truck in New Hartford Shopping Center, a Clam Booth concession selling raw and steamed clams at firemen’s field days and fairs throughout the area and a tent rental business for parties and graduations. In latter years, they had a craft booth at Clinton and Hamilton Farmer’s Market.
Mr. Brady is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Carol, his children Patricia (Weigel) and Peter Franz of New Hartford, NY, Patrick and Pattie Brady of Brookfield, NY, Scott and Christine Brady of Port St. Lucie, FL, Shari and David Greenbaum of Owings Mills, MD, his step-children Gary and Amy White of Whitesboro, NY, Jeffrey White of Utica, NY, Thomas and Judy White of Madison, NY, Katheryn and Michael Ellsworth of Brookfield, NY, Rebecca and Mark Williams of West Winfield, NY, and his brother, Richard and Nancy Brady of Oriskany Falls, NY.
He was a great fun-loving, caring Grandpa or “Pops” to a blended family group of 21 grandchildren and 25 great grands. He will be greatly missed. Donations may be made to Alzheimer’s Foundation of America at in his honor.
A very special thank you goes to the staff of The Lutheran Home Bryant Unit in Clinton, NY for their compassion and loving care and support for Mr. Brady and his family.
