Brady Lee Grote


Our sweet Brady Boy has gone on to be with his Mom (Danise) in Heaven. His life here on earth was only 17 years, but in those years, Brady touched so many with his sensitive soul and great sense of humor. We love you Brady, and will celebrate your life always.

Brady had an amazing personality full of joy and curiosity. He was passionate about many things including Graffiti Art, Music and Diverse Cultures. Brady was a great student and a spectacular artist. His goal was to attend UCLA with his best friend to study medicine.

Brady’s network of friends grew like wildfire due to his amazing spirit and genuine acceptance of others. This beautiful and strong circle was fueled by Brady’s brothers and their incredible friendships with so many awesome individuals.
