1946 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
HAWTHORN WOODS - James Nicholas "Nick" Brady, 70, died peacefully on November 11, 2017. A visitation will be held from 10:00 am until a celebration of life service beginning at 1:00 pm at Ahlgrim Family Funeral Home, 415 S. Buesching Road, Lake Zurich on Saturday, November 18, 2017. Nick is survived by his wife of 41 years, Shari, and their three loving children: son Cameron Brady (wife Elizabeth, daughter Gianna), and daughters Jessica Brady (husband Alistair Reader) and Andrea Brady. Nick was a proud Chicagoan who also held on to his roots as a Kentucky native. Born in Covington, Ky., on November 21, 1946, Nick put himself through college and earned a Bachelor's degree from the University of Kentucky in 1969. Nick went on to build a successful career as a print salesman over the next five decades, spending the last nine years of his professional life at Specialty Print Communications in Niles, Ill. Nick loved his colleagues and his customers, who will miss him dearly. Tall and boisterous, Nick was a great conversationalist whose good humor and curiosity were beloved by all who knew him. He passed on to his children a passion for work, a love of Motown music, and an Irish wit. Nick's family celebrates the life of the man they deeply loved, who has now gone on his own terms to his Old Kentucky Home: Weep no more my lady. Oh! Weep no more today! We will sing one song For my old Kentucky home For the old Kentucky home, far away. -"My Old Kentucky Home" For those wishing to make a contribution in Nick Brady's honor, donations may be made to the Lake Zurich Fire Department, 321 S. Buesching Road, Lake Zurich, IL 60047. For information, 847-540-8871 or www.ahlgrimffs.com.
