Mahopac- Edward F. Brady ďPopĒ, a longtime resident of Mahopac, NY, previously of Carmel and Yonkers, passed away on December 13, 2023. He was 81 years old.

Ed was born on August 9, 1942, in Saranac Lake, the son of Francis and Irene (Parisee) Brady.

With a grateful heart, he proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy aboard the U.S.S. Amberjack 522.

Once returning home to Yonkers, Ed began working with Con Ed as a Machinist in the Bronx. He spent the next 40 years with them retiring out of Indian Point in Buchanan, NY. After being retired for a year and a half, he went back to work as a Machinist for Metro-North Railroad. He finally retired for good and began to enjoy the retirement life.
