It is with great sadness that I inform you that Pat Grady has had his
last extract. In 1966-67, Pat served in B Company in Viet Nam.

Pat was a fine Marine and among the first to join the 1st Reconnaissance
Battalion Association and later serve as Association Vice President.

Pat lost a valiant fight with the Covid virus.

Our condolences to Pat's wife, Victoria, and his family.

To all of Patrick’s friends
Victoria wanted me to tell you all that Patrick Passed at 11:50 Phoenix time today (December 10th, 2020) from the COVID virus. They were on a conference call with Patrick, Victoria, Sandra and Tommy when he passed. Because of COVID they could not be in the room with him, but he new they all loved him so very much. He was one of the most generous and kind men I have had the pleasure of knowing for more than 20 years. Please send your prayers and love to the family at this very sad time.
Patrick we will see you again❤️

Rest in Peace, Pat

It is with heavy heart that I report that Patrick P. Grady passed away yesterday Friday the 10th from Covid. He was put on a ventilator Saturday the 5th. He was a member of Bravo Co. 3rd platoon from December 1965 through 1967. He held several posts in our Recon organization and went to most of the reunions since 1992. Fortunately everyone else in his family that got the virus survived. Posted by, Larry Hanson 12/11/2020

Too many people running around don’t take this virus serious. 270,000+ have died and yet some people (ignorant) still think this is a hoax or that the government is trying to control them. Unbelievable the amount of inconsiderate stupid that’s out there.

Will be lifting family up in prayer. All join in, prayer sometimes is all we have. God’s peace is there to comfort. Glad Pat could be with us—Semper Fi Marine—see ya later.

Justin Murray Victoria sent him pictures of the paddle 3-4 days before he went into ICU so most likely he did get to at least see pics of it on his phone

Justin Murray
Larry Hanson thanks. I just messaged her. I'm glad he got to see it.

For those of you that know, the last couple weeks have hit my family extremely hard. Covid grabbed a hold of me, my wife an my dad. Keyla Grady was the strongest one and along with my sister Sandie Grady Zerilli looked to protect us and help the family in ways you only read about, in my opinion. I was in the hospital and was not doing well, 2 days before getting out my father Patrick P. Grady was admitted into the hospital. My father is my best friend, the beacon of the family and the shield. Today is his 73rd Birthday, and for an old Irish Marine I know that he will be ok. He is battling hard and it breaks my heart that I can not do more. Regardless he is the most amazing person that I know, with a will and a do not stop drive and leave no one behind EVER!
The best I can do is wish you a happy birthday Dad, and look forward to celebrating with you once we piss all over Covid as a family!!
Thank you Dad for everything you have taught me, pushing me to be a man that you could see long before anyone else ever could. You know how to get things done and bring people together. For that you are the Family Patriarch!
From your friend, your son, and one who knows and understands the things you have taught and why.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE, without you I would not be who I am today.
Love always,
Your son
