Edmund Lilly Grady, Jr.

Mr. Edmund Lilly Grady, Jr., 83, of Fayetteville, passed away peacefully at his beloved home on Thursday, December 23, 2021.

Edmund was a lifelong member of Hay Street United Methodist Church and was a proud member of the Mayflower Society. He was a US Army veteran and graduate of Staunton Military Academy and Methodist University. He worked for MJ Soffe for many years before retiring.

Edmund was also an avid hunter, golfer, and angler. He was highly anticipating the birth of his first great grandchild in May and no doubt will rejoice on higher ground.

A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, December 28, 2021, at 2 pm at Cross Creek Cemetery #3.

Edmund was preceded in death by his parents, Marguerite Bishop and Edmund Lilly Grady, and his sister, Marguerite Grady Bird.

He is survived by his wife, Bettye Grady of the home; three daughters, Kathleen (Byron) Browning of Annandale, VA, Dallas (Chris) Stanley of Greensboro, NC, and Carrie (Chris) Tish of Charlotte, NC; and six grandchildren, Olivia (Thomas), Madison, Hunter, Bettye Grace, Marguerite, and Hans.

The family would like to thank Cape Fear Valley Hospice for their tender mercy.

Memorials may be made to Hay Street United Methodist Church or to one's favorite charity.
