Brady started his life with his mom, dad, and the twins (his older brother and sister) in Ceresco, Neb. When he was 18 years old, they moved to Casper, Wyo., where he met his best friends for life. Brady then moved with his family back to his father’s hometown in Cedar Rapids and started as a freshman at Riverside High School. Brady graduated this past May with the Class of 2022. In August he started in the Theatre Program at Hastings College, Hastings, Neb.
During Brady’s short life he did many things. At a young age, he became a Marvels Universe Superhero fan, along with Dungeon’s and Dragons. He loved his games and even this last weekend had a game of D&D with his friends.

He also had a part in the Missoula Children’s Theatre. Brady played a few sports, when he was in elementary school he tried out wrestling and did pretty well, in high school he joined the golf team.
