Brady, John Robert Dale – John (April 18, 1947 – May 17, 2021) passed away in the early morning hours of May 17 at the St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre in Cornwall, Ontario. Predeceased by his wife Carolyn Ruth Brady (nee Sabey), his brother Leslie Charles Brady, and his parents John “Jack” Robert Brady and Elizabeth “Betty” Maude Brady (nee Lloyd). Beloved father of son, John Robert (Daile) of North Bay, Ontario; daughter, Jennifer Ruth Sachedina (Aamer, deceased), of Queensville, Ontario; and son, William James (Heidi) of Alpine, Utah.

John’s sense of charity and fairness touched the lives of many throughout his life and will live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. He leaves behind his sister, Elizabeth Anstee (Jim) of St. Catharines, Ontario; and his brother, Richard Brady (Brenda) of Port Colborne, Ontario. He will be especially missed by his grandchildren, Delainey, Ashleigh, Kathryn, Hayden, Rebekah, Robyn, Julian, Jenna, Ainsley, Jack (deceased), William, and James.

The oldest of four children, John spent his formative years in Kingston, Ontario. He later moved to Cornwall where he finished high school at CCVS and met peers who would become lifelong friends. The first to attend university in his family, John studied at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah to become a teacher. Soon after graduation, he returned to Cornwall and was hired at the SD&G County Board of Education where he worked as a teacher, a department head, and later, as an administer in the alternative education program. Over a thirty-year career, he joyfully served and had a positive influence upon students and colleagues alike.

Later in life, feeling drawn by his family heritage, John joined the Morrisburg chapter of the Loyal Orange Lodge, where he enjoyed meaningful friendships with the other members. He also enjoyed attending lodge functions with his wife, Carolyn, who was part of the ladies’ auxiliary.

Special thanks to the caring and compassionate staff at St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre who cared for John during the last years of his life. Their service and dedication is much appreciated and will not be forgotten.

In order to adhere to restrictions related to COVID-19, a memorial service will be held via webcast on Friday, May 28 at 1:00 pm with burial to follow the next day, Saturday, May 29, at White Lake Cemetery in Ivanhoe, Ontario. Donations made in John’s honour to St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre would be most appreciated. Online condolences may be shared at
