James Island, SC - Mark McLoughlin Brady, husband of Pam and father of Matthew and Daniel, died peacefully at home on James Island, SC., Thursday, December 17, 2020 with his wife of 35 years beside him. Born in Ravenna on November 24, 1958, he spent his childhood between Detroit's suburbs and Hudson, which he considered his home.

Mark had many passions and in 1968 when the Tigers won the World Series and his Little League Baseball team won the Detroit wide championship, it cemented his love of baseball and a lifelong passion for baseball cards and coaching.

His family moved back and settled on Valerie Lane in Hudson for a few years. He was part of the "Valerie Lane Gang", who spent afternoons playing in the swamp catching frogs and tadpoles. His swamp tree, a weeping willow seedling still stands in the yard.

Mark spent his junior year at Birmingham High School before returning to Hudson to join the golf team and graduate in 1977.

He took a gap year to be in the 1st Paramedic class at Akron General where he received an EMT/paramedic certification. After retiring the City of Hudson declared February 7, 2018, "Mark Brady Day" in honor of his 25 plus year commitment to service. as well as working for Care Ambulance, Physicians ambulance and dispatched for C-Med in Cleveland. Mark would attend Ohio University for a year and later Kent State.

Mark loved Hudson and we have many fond memories of our friends at Hudson EMS, Hudson Fire and the police departments. He loved learning to fly and followed anything in the sky, from weather to the stars and everything between. Mark was an encyclopedia when it came to baseball and classic rock and frequently shared old videos with his friends and family. Mark enjoyed golf and travel, but his greatest joy was being a father to his sons. Not having a brother, he encouraged the boys be each others' best friend. He was extremely proud of his sons' accomplishments.

Mark had a mischievous side, when he wanted the cartoon Martian's name; he called Chuck Jones in LA. (It's Marvin). Recently he became a Lord when he received a square foot of the Scottish Highlands.

Mark spent 23 years with the Chrysler Corporation where he was injured and retired in 2008.

Preceded in death by his parents Charlene J. and Leonard W. Brady, Mark leaves behind his family and the Cargould family, as well as, so many friends indicative of a life well lived. He will be missed by all.

A celebration of life will take place in late May 2021 in Ohio
