Grady was a loving husband and father who would bend over backward for his family. His grandchildren and great-grandbabies held the most special place in his heart. He was anxiously waiting for the newest great-granddaughter to arrive, he kept asking her name, Aria Grace. He enjoyed hunting and even taught his grandson all knew. He loved fishing and bowling. Grady served his country proudly as a Sargent in the Army. He was a jokester who loved a good prank for April Fool's Day. He loved the holidays and even lotted himself in with the greats. He called it the "Big Four"  His birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. He never met a stranger. Every person in the world, to him, was just a friend he hadn't met yet. He always saw the good in people. Sometimes, that's all he would see, even if no one else could see it.
