January 1, 1966 – February 19, 2005

Grady began his firefighting career with Texas City Fire Department. He was hired on with Houston Fire Department in March 1993, where he was promoted to E/O and Captain. February 19, 2005 was his final call, at a house fire where the roof collapsed, trapping and killing him.

Grady loved God, being a firefighter, helping others and spending time his family, wife and kids; Cindy, Hannah, Hailey and Hunter. Grady was genuine, and kind hearted with a soul the size of Texas. He was always ready and willing to help!
