So sorry the time passed. I remember the good times of our youth at family gatherings, the gang from Potato Hill riding our bikes, playing ball on Tharp's lot, sled riding on the hill and playing with the trains in Uncle Jack's attic. Will share our memories. My thoughts are with your family.

Sorry to hear of "Jackie Butch's" passing. Him, "Pepper Edwards and myself were the three cousins all about the same age. I always enjoyed talking to him though we did not see each other often. I particularly remember his days as a Park Ranger. My condolences to the family. Herman Willis, Sandy and Marguerite.

Dear Todd and Colleen, Between the weather and my not driving at night (and Bill's driving scares me) I have decided it would be better to send you our deepest condolences on the loss of your brother and my cousin Jackie Butch. I would have liked very much to be with you to talk about the good times that we had at Grandma Brady's house during family picnics. Uncle Jack and Aunt Mildred were always smiling at the picnics. My mom, Aunt Annabelle, enjoyed seeing all her nieces and nephews. I have such good memories of my West Virginia relatives. I would have liked to have seen pictures of Grandpa Brady as a young man at the viewing. Please say Goodbye to Jackie Butch from Susie and that one day he and I will meet again. Condolences to all of Jackie Butch's family, friends and people he has touched through the years. Peace to all. Sue, Bill, Rhonda, Steve and Renee
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Jack was one of the most integrity rich teachers', commanders and mentors I have ever met or been associated. His in-depth knowledge of history, calm demeanor and acute delivery of subject matter was second to none. He served in our wing with distinction. One of the best of the best.

My memories of Jack go back a long time. We met in junior high school and became instance good friends though high school, college, and throughout life. There are many great memories that we made during all of this time. Some of the best were in the early years when we spent time driving Jack's old pick-up truck. It had a homemade camper type cover in the back which many times had other guys hanging out from there as we drove place to place to play ball, check out the sites and just to have someplace to go. Jack even decided to drive me out to my girl friend's (Loretta -now my wife) house during the snow storm of 1966. No one was on the roads that shut down school for a couple of weeks; however, a little snow could not stop Jack. He was determined to help out a friend and prove that he could make it. Yes-- we did get there, return safely and Jack let me know that he and that truck could go anywhere. Jack and I enjoyed a great bond. We each married to girls we dated in high school and spent countless fun hours as couples I kept in touch while he was in active Army service and when he returned as a policeman. We would go back and forth to each home as we raised our families. In good times and bad times, I always knew that Jack was there for me and that we could call, meet and just talk about anything. Jack Brady was a special person. He was a caring husband, father and certainly a great great friend who I will miss dearly and will remember forever. Thank you --- Jack for being who you were. Ron

One memory of Jack are of when my late husband and I lived next door to Jack and his family on Back Mountain Road in Frederick County, Va.. My husband always hand shoveled our driveway but one winter Jack got a snow blower and said he would clear our long driveway for Tom. So the fun began when Jack rode up on his snow blower and began to clear our driveway, however, our driveway was mostly up hill so Tom had to push Jack and his snow blower up the hill to remove the snow. I was watching from the window and I never laughed so hard as I did that morning watching them and, of course, they were laughing with each other. Big boys still had fun in the snow! My sympathy goes out to Jack's wonderful family. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Debbie, Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family at this so very sad loss of your most special Jack. I remember a very special time when Emmanuel had an outreach weekend and you and Jack hosted a guest, and some of us from Emmanuel were invited to your house. It was a very special time of sharing and getting to know each other and sharing our faith. I remember Jack talking about his family. It was so clear that Jack was so happy and proud of his family. we laughed and had such a good time. Jack was a blessing to so many. God bless you and your family. Dave and Karen Kohne

While I did not personally know Lt. Col Jack Brady, I serve with his son, CDR John Brady, in the U.S. Coast Guard. John is an exceptional person and officer. His father did a great job raising a son and I know John is a direct reflection of his father's values and character. I would like to express my sincere condolences to the Brady family and you are in my thoughts and prayers "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." 2 Timothy 4:7.

Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Take comfort Debbie knowing that you provided exceptional care to Jack which allowed him to stay at home during his illness. I have worked in healthcare for over 33 years and not once have I seen more support and better care given in the home setting.

Jack worked for my Dad (Chief Ranger Dwight E. Stinson, Jr) a number of seasons as a U.S. Park Ranger at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. He was an outstanding Ranger and public servant and will be greatly missed.
John & Melinda Russell left a message on January 7, 2015:
Jack was a great friend and colleague. He will be sorely missed by everyone who had the good fortune to know him. Our most famous story was when we were reconstructing his old deck (when the children were small)(years later we built a new deck on a different house) and a board sprang back and the rusty nail went through John's hand. We bandaged his hand and John and Jack finished the deck. When we were done, we left and went to the hospital and John got the tetanus shot. John and Jack used to cut wood together...going into the national forest to gather the wood when we lived in Warren County. Good times. Rest in peace dear friend.

My heartfelt condolences to all the family, friends and colleagues of Jack. To know Jack was to know a fine Gentleman and a Giant among men. His kind spirit demonstrated a true love for God, his family and our Country. He was a true patriot and great addition to our FEMA workforce. He demonstrated a true compassion for those suffering and worked diligently to improve our systems and services to disaster survivors. I will never forget him, his quiet demeanor, sensitive nature and quirky sense of humor. We also shared a love for meteorology and storm tracking. I’ve been so blessed to call him a friend and colleague for even the shortest of times, and my life was better with him in it. RIP my friend. You've done great work here on earth, and we've got it from here. Until we meet again sir...

My condolences to Mr. Brady ' family. I had the gift of having him as a teacher at Warren County High School. His love for history and for teaching was evident. I am so sorry he struggled with ALS. He has fought a good fight and now he can be at peace with our Lord and Savior.

My deepest condolences on the lose of one of the finest men I have had the privilege of knowing during my tenure with FEMA. Jack was a true gentleman in every aspect of the word and deeply cared about the people that he worked with. Always a kind word and a smile to everyone that he spoke with and truly a fine teacher and mentor. He fought a courageous battle with ALS and is now resting peacefully and embracing the lord.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I was very saddened to hear of the loss of Lt. Col Brady. He was always nice and supportive of me when I visited his house with his son, John B. Brady, as cadets at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. My deepest condolences to Lt. Col. Brady's wife, friends, and family, especially my Academy roommate and great friend, John. Lt. Col. Brady was a living example of a true officer and a gentleman. He will be dearly missed.

Jack was a super great guy! I really enjoyed knowing him. He contributed greatly to our project success at FEMA, but one of his best contributions was just being the awesome guy he was each day. We all thought he was terrific. Most sincere condolences.
