Kenneth Neff Brady passed away Sunday morning (July 19, 2009) in Saint George, UT surrounded by his wife, parents, and many of his siblings, children, and grandchildren.

By all accounts he went peacefully “with a smile on his face.”

After battling the exponentially debilitating effects of Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) for over a year, one can only imagine the joy he must have felt at his release. A smile seems only appropriate.

His family misses him already, but is confident Ken is in a better place and is happy.

And we are all happy for that.

(And I am happy my husband will be home soon.)

I'm glad I got the chance to meet Ken. It was fun getting to see where Kenny gets his goofiness from. Again, sorry for your loss.

I loved randomly running into Ken here in St. George. He was always so nice and welcoming to us. And so happy all the time. I think the smile was the perfect way for him to go since he always wore one in life. We love you and you're in our prayers.

Jill - Thank you so much for letting Kenny take care of his Dad and my big brother for so long. Our whole family recognizes the sacrafice you made as well to allow that to happen. I am sure it wasn't easy. You and Kenny have my greatest respect and admiration. Love, Uncle Matt
