Obituary Roger Arnold Brady

April 6 1961 — June 17 2019

Roger Arnold Brady met his Lord and Saviour on June 17, 2019. Roger was born in Tulsa, OK to Ena Maureen and Harold Howell Brady on April 6, 1961. He grew up in England, attending Blundell’s Boarding School, before returning to the U.S. at 18 to earn two engineering degrees from the Colorado School of Mines. He visited and worked in every state in the Union as well as the UK, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Turkey, Jordan, Canada, South Korea, and even helped build the U.S. military airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. Roger’s work as a cost estimator spanned many industries over his 35 year career including mining, heavy highway, chemical, hazardous wastes, and nuclear industries.

The desire to be an exceptional husband and father can be seen in the goals, dreams and aspirations he set not only for himself but for his family. Roger met his goals fully. He will be most remembered for the dedication and boundless love for his wife, Staci, and his cherished children Brie, Bryce and Bailey. Laughter, travel, games, and family conversations brought Roger great joy and contentment in life. Nothing was more important than being a good husband and father.

Roger has been an active member of The Woodlands United Methodist Church for over 21 years. He loved serving others inside the church and out. He was a Sunday School Shepherd for elementary kids, confirmation leader, Special Needs Ministry volunteer, the “Donut Man”, served on many local mission projects and made many mission trips to Costa Rica. His favourite was UM ARMY which combined his passions of mentoring teenagers and construction projects. Roger’s surviving family includes: his brother retired Col. Brian Harold Brady (Springfield, VA), his sister Rosalind Brady Smith (San Diego, CA), mother-in-law Jo May, sister-in-law Lori May and brothers-in-law, Rick and Bret. May His faith and hope have inspired many as he battled Stage IV colon cancer. His trust in God’s plan allowed him to face each day with hope. His loyalty knew no boundaries, and he would do anything for those he loved. Roger was loved by many and will be dearly missed. It will be a great reunion when we see him again in Heaven.
