Death of Melvin Brady

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of Melvin Brady, father-in-law of retired GCI vice-president Mike Feazell and father of Mike’s wife Victoria Feazell. In reflecting on Mel’s passing, Mike made these comments:

BradyDespite life’s sometime painful twists and turns, I never heard Mel speak bitterly, angrily or cruelly about anyone. He chose to live a life of believing the best and hoping for the best. If you looked for Mel, you’d most likely find him lending someone a helping hand, or coming or going from doing so. After the death of Victoria’s mom, Barbara, Mel was richly blessed to meet the former Amy Miller and share the next 19 joyous years with her at his side. Amy is a strong and capable woman and is surrounded by a large and loving family as she travels this rocky and winding road of grief. Victoria and I are so grateful for the happiness she brought Mel for so many years.

Cards may be sent to Victoria and Mike at this address:

  1. Very sorry to the family for your loss. Mr. Brady was probably the first Ambassador College employee I ever met — he picked us up at the DFW airport at the beginning of my freshman year. The school couldn’t have had a better ambassador for the organization. He would make time to talk to you, give advice, and tell you what was coming in the years ahead. He’d even sit beside you and keep you company while waiting at the airport for other students, when you didn’t know anyone else. All with a smile and a kind heart. Like an instant father figure. I still think of him from time to time even though I barely got to know him. He was an amazing man and a wonderful role model.

  2. Dear Mike and Victoria,

  4. Like Steve mentioned, I too met Mr. Brady at Ambassador in Big Sandy. He was at ease with all of the students all of the time. When he was behind the wheel of one of those big and very old buses you knew you could relax and enjoy the ride, confident that he was going to get you there smoothly. Our prayers to all of the family.

  5. Dear Mike and Victoria,

    So sorry for your loss. We will pray for you and his wife Amy. I knew Mr. Brady from working in Big Sandy together. He was a very unassuming man was always smiling and very kind hearted. We will miss him.
