Obituary of Michael J. Brady

Please share a memory of Michael to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Michael James Brady passed peacefully on September 5, 2021. He shared 77 years of love with his family.  

Michael was born in Newark to the late James and Grace Brady.  He was one of five children to bless the family. After his schooling he joined the US Army to serve our country. Upon his honorable discharge, he went on to work for various companies including the Edison Company, U.S. Postal Service, and the Morris & Erie Railway. He married Cheryl Jeannette and they settled in West Orange to start their family.  Mike was soon the proud father to three sons of his own.   In his spare time he enjoyed walking along the Hudson River by NYC and often traveled there to watch the boats, particularly the ships of Fleet Week. He also enjoyed riding on the train and visiting the Shore in the summers with his family. A recent hobby was to discover and share "new" music (from the 80's) with his family. His greatest joy though was watching his granddaughters grow. 

He leaves his wife Cheryl Brady of 51 years; his sons Michael (Heather), Christopher (Agnes), and Daniel (Ellie); his adored granddaughters Coralyn and Tessa; his brother William (Fran) and his feathered friend Tweets. He is predeceased by his siblings James, Patricia, and Grace ("Cookie").  

Private arrangements will be held under the direction of the Norman Dean home for services in Denville, New Jersey. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations in his memory to the MSA Coalition.  https://www.multiplesystematrophy.org/msa-memorial-donations/
