    Brady was always such a joy to be around! I remember talking to him about all the different types of fish to catch on the crow river and chatting about life and the things we were excited for. He always made the McDonald’s store light up whenever he was around

    Brady would sit outside Rose Haven and greet me with a big smile and welcoming “Hi Mrs. Phenow how are you?”
    “You have a good day. ”
    What a gentle and kind soul.

    You will be missed greatly at McDonald’s so I know your family and friends will miss you even more. You were one of the first people I met when I started working at Mc Donald’s over 5 years ago and you had already been working there for several years. Everyone appreciated you and your work ethic. You can never be replaced. Your loss is felt by all who knew you. Rest in Peace, Brady, and may your family and friends find solace in their many memories. All of us are better off for having known you.

    In the 2 years I have known Brady he was a great friend
    We had many talks about fishing the river and I was blessed by being able to fish with Brady on the river.
    He caught all the fish but we could not keep any.
    Working at McDonald’s was a great joy for Brady and a place to meet new friends
    Brady never had a loss for thing we could talk about
    He always told me I could call him Bottom Rig Brady
    Blessing to all Brady’s family
    He will be missed

    Brady when I first met you back in 2009, I really enjoyed getting to know you and over these years we have gone fishing, out to eat and been over to each others apartments, I was looking forward to going fishing with, but that never happened, rest in peace you’ll be missed

  19. Ashley hott

    Oh, sweet Brady I’m so sorry to hear of your passing. I remember all the good times that we talked and laughed about. Or the bad times when I helped pull you out of the fire and took your dog for a few days. Every time we saw each other you would always say ” oh hey Ashers how are you today” it was always Ashers never Ashley. You will be missed buddy fly high.

  20. Joe Harmon

    Dear Corinne, Scott, Blake and Joe we are so saddened to hear of Brady’s untimely passing. Our prayers are with you. I enjoyed my interactions with him at family gatherings as we would exchange fishing story’s. He always seemed to have a bright and positive outlook on life. Rest in peace Brady.

    Joe, Diane and Matt Harmon
