Ralph Edward Brady


Mr. Ralph E. Brady departed this life peacefully Sept. 22, 2019, at Heritage Hall Healthcare in Nassawadox. He was born Sept. 10, 1948, in Oyster, to the late Ralph Brady and the late Della Mae Tull Brady. He grew up in Northampton County where he spent years working the waters of the Chesapeake Bay with his Daddy, whom he admired. Mr. Brady, who was also called “Buddy” and “RE” by his loved ones, had a happy and sweet personality that drew people to him. He was a great sports fan and enjoyed sitting around watching football, baseball and NASCAR racing, as well as his favorite westerns. When he wasn’t watching TV he relaxed playing solitaire while sipping on his beloved mist.

Mr. Brady leaves to cherish his memory four children, Eddie (Tara) Brady, Bonnie (Robert) Brady, Darius Weeks, of Marion, Ind., and Ronnie (Shanda) Brady, of Nassawadox; three sisters, Ann (Roy) Johnson, of Nassawadox, Dina Brady Martinez, of Exmore, and Terry Lynn Kessell, of Darian, Ga.; fifteen grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins; and a very special friend, Tracy Joynes. He was predeceased by three wives, Darlene, Faye, and Pauline; his beloved partner of 28 years, Catherine Moore; sister, Malinda Brady Echols; two brothers, Steve Brady and James Bradshaw; and granddaughter, Miranda Merritt.

The family would like to express sincere gratitude and thanks to those who have shown their support during this time of loss. A special thanks to the professional and caring staff at Heritage Hall Healthcare and Riverside Shore Hospice.
