Elmo C. Brady, beloved son, brother, cousin, uncle, brother-in-law, husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, stepfather, great-grandfather, coach, teacher, golfing and fishing partner, friend and neighbor, passed away on Tuesday, May 21, 1991.

He died as he had lived: demanding the most that both his body and his spirit could possibly give.He will be remembered as being a genuine "good egg". He was, and is, loved, cherished and respected by many whose lives he has touched in a myriad of ways.

Being the last of his generation, he leaves a void that cannot be filled. He will be missed; he will be treasured. "You played a good game, Jit, and the `fat lady', more than likely, isn't singing yet!"
