Grady Brodie Obituary

Grady Dean Brodie, a devoted family man and dedicated professional, peacefully passed away on January 18, 2024, at the age of 80. Born on July 8, 1943, in Red River County, Texas, Grady was the son of his late parents, John Ira and Opal Lizzie Brodie.

Grady pursued his education with determination and earned his High School Diploma. Grady proudly served his country in the United States Navy for four years, and his dedication to duty and his fellow servicemen will always be remembered with gratitude. Grady built a successful career as a Chief Engineer Manager of the Central Plant at Methodist Hospital, where he served with pride and dedication for over 20 years.

A loving husband, Grady was married to and is survived by his cherished spouse, Lela (Hancock). Together, they shared a beautiful life filled with love, laughter, and countless memories. They were the epitome of a loving and supportive partnership.

Grady and Lela were blessed with two sons, John (Lori) and Scott (Lisa), who will forever treasure their father's guidance and unconditional love. Grady cherished his grandchildren, Justin (Sasha), Nathan (Julia), Micah (Autumn), Emma, and Ellie Karr, along with his great-grandchildren, Weston, Ava, Zoey, Olivia, and Lily. He took immense pride in watching his family grow and thrive.

Grady is survived by his brothers, Kenneth, Thomas (Rosalinda), Bobby Earl (Nora), and his sister, Yvonne Farrar. Grady was preceded in death by his siblings, JR, Billy, and Eva Joyce, his brothers-in-law, Donald Farrar,  Johnny Ponnequin, and his sister-in-law, Dorothea. He shared a special bond with each of his siblings and cherished the times they spent together.

Grady used his mechanical ingenuity in his hobbies throughout his life. Grady was the family mechanical expert and his advice was routinely sought by many. Grady loved donkeys and would drive with Lela to see them at a nearby farm almost daily.

Grady Dean Brodie will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and respected professional. His kindness, wisdom, and unique sense of humor will forever live on in the hearts of those fortunate enough to have known him. He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered.
