Brian G. “Red” Brady, a lifelong resident of Malden, passed away on Sunday, March 8th, after a brief illness in Lowell General Hospital. Red was born in Somerville on December 29th, 1945, the son of Francis and Martha Brady. He was raised in Malden and graduated from Malden High School with the Class of 1963. He worked as a professional painter and sider, and was the proud owner of Brady Painting and Restoration in Malden, a company he operated until his retirement.

He married his sweetheart, Patricia Wells, in Sacred Hearts Church in Malden in 1965. They settled down in Malden to raise their family. Although their marriage ended after 28 years, they were able to raise their six children together. He loved spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, and enjoyed taking them to Canobie Lake Park the most.

In earlier years, Red was the pitcher for the Max’s Bar and Grill softball team and was also an avid bowler. He was a diehard Boston sports fan, and enjoyed listening to the Beatles. Red also liked going to Revere Beach to enjoy his morning coffee.

He is survived by his children and their spouses, Brian Brady of Boston, Robert Brady of Warwick, RI, Scott & Lesley Brady of Nashua, NH, Patrick & Liliana Brady of Highland, IN, Kimberly & Antonino DiFiore of Dracut, and Kelly Brady of Dracut, his sister, Arlene DiFabio of Malden, his grandchildren, James, Nicole, Justin, Anthony, Geena, Joseph, Samantha, Brian, and Charlotte, and his great grandchildren, Riley and Raegan, and his former wife, Patricia Brady. Red was preceded in death by his siblings, Francis Brady Jr, Barbara Daly, Rosie Benson, Brenda Sullivan, Jane Scoppa, and Sheila Brady.
