Bill Brady (’68) passed after a long illness on July 10. He is survived by Lizzie, his wife for over 50 years, children Alice, Oliver and James and grandchildren. Early on during a junior year abroad from Rutgers, while in Leeds, Bill met and married Lizzie. They returned to the U.S. for one year so Bill could get his degree, and then returned to England. Bill became a dentist and after a few years opened a practice in a small town in rural Wales. He made many friends, practiced with skill and integrity, and played badminton (oh, well!). Although Bill lived most of his life in Britain, he always felt like an American. He cared passionately about his U.S. politics. Bill and I became close friends in college. During his last year, we had a regular, weekly phone calls. Bill, like so many of us, remembered an idyllic, Leave It To Beaver childhood in Paramus. He praised Mr. Boyce but thought that the movie The African Queen was in iambic pentameter. He taught me that instead of ironing my blue jeans I could become a hippie. I miss him.

Bill was an very personable and soft-spoken person. I always wondered what had become of him. I'm glad to read his bio. I was hoping to see him at our last reunion but this was not to be. I'll always remember him as a very fine young man.

My sincerest condolences to all of those loved ones Bill left behind. I know, through Stephen Kahn, that Bill was suffering in his last few years. I hope he is at peace and am happy he is no longer suffering.
