NEW BREMEN — Wayne B. "Dutch" Brady, age 82, of New Bremen, died on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016, at 2:25 p.m. at the St. Rita's Medical Center Hospice, Lima, Ohio.

He was born on Nov. 7, 1933, in New Bremen, the son of the late Bernard Brady and Mabel C. (Gray) Brady. On April 16, 1955, in Sidney, Ohio, he married Rose McClain who survives in New Bremen.

Also surviving are his children, Tim and Theresa Brady, of Coldwater, Ted and Ramona Brady, of New Carlisle, Ohio, Tammy and Greg Luthman, of Botkins, and Terri and Kurt Lammers, of New Bremen; 12 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and his sister, Victoria Bielefeld, of Wapakoneta.

Preceding him in death were his siblings, Betty Marshall, Earline Stolte, Edward Brady and Mary Ann Heil.

Dutch was baptized and had attended the St. Paul United Church of Christ in New Bremen. In more recent years, he attended the Church of the Holy Redeemer in New Bremen. He was a 1952 graduate of New Bremen High School and was active with the New Bremen Boy Scouts, enjoyed playing softball with the Bill's Fleetwing team, bowling with the STAMCO Coilers and had been an Auxiliary police officer with the New Bremen Police Department.

His true enjoyment was woodworking in his own shop. He volunteered his services to the New Bremen Schools, making and painting the numerous sports yard signs displayed at homes throughout the community. Dutch retired from STAMCO in 1998 where he had been a field service engineer. He had previously worked at the former Cox Greenhouse and Wuebbenhorst Painting, both of New Bremen.

Funeral services will be on Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016, at 10:30 a.m. at the Church of the Holy Redeemer in New Bremen with the Rev. Robert Hadden officiating. Burial will follow in the Willow Grove Cemetery, New Bremen.
