Obituary

Glenn Martin, “Coach,” Brady left us on Sunday morning, February 3, 2019. We miss him. He was born on September 30, 1935 in Liberty, Texas. The oldest child of Thadlie and Tully Brady and the brother of Don Brady (deceased), Ann Holland and Jan St. John, Glenn grew up in Port Allen and Clinton. After graduating from Clinton High School with athletic and academic accolades, he earned a degree from Stephen F Austin College, whereupon he married his high school sweetheart, Annette Matthews, and began his journey as a husband, father, teacher and coach. During a 25-year career in education, he earned a PhD from LSU and coached and taught at several high schools in South Louisiana and colleges throughout the country and across the Atlantic. His teams mostly won. More importantly, Coach Brady touched the lives of thousands of students and players.

Coach Brady hung up his whistle in 1981 to focus on managing the family farm in East Feliciana Parish. However, his loyalty to the town of Zachary and his hometown of Clinton led him to interrupt his retirement twice. First, in Zachary he was called to serve as interim Superintendent to lead the effort to create the independent Zachary School District. A few years later his hometown came calling and he responded, serving as Superintendent of the East Feliciana Parish School System for several years.

Coach Brady’s loyalty to education and coaching was matched by his devotion to his church. He and his family were members of Southern Baptist churches throughout the country. More than a mere member, Coach Brady taught Sunday school, served as deacon and preached in a pinch.

Coach Brady leaves behind a loving team that includes Annette, his wife of sixty years, his sons Shawn, Pat, Mike, Scott and Warren and their respective spouses Suzanne, Anne, Elizabeth, Eleonor and Melissa, and a wonderful bunch of grandkids: Matt, Gulliver, Orion, Sebastian and his spouse Megha, Owen, Delaney, Carolyn, Evelyn, Aldin and Wes. This crew is rounded out by Coach Brady’s sisters, Jan St. John and Anne Holland, his brothers-in-law, Don St. John and Marvin Holland, and his sister-in-law Sarah Brady, and their children.

Beyond family, Coach Brady was blessed with the friendship of his many former peers, players, students, coaches, church members and homefolks. The family invites all to a visitation at the First Baptist Church of Zachary on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 from 5pm until 7pm and then on Thursday, February 7, 2019 from 9am until funeral services at 10am. Pallbearers will be Coach Brady’s sons and friend Ronnie McMorris.

I am very sorry for your loss. I remember Dr. Brady very well. He and his son, Scott, would offer free Algebra and Geometry tutoring to Zachary High School students, at the Bronco Corral. This was from the late 1980s. I'd say from 1985-1989, when I was ZHS student. I'd always attend those free sessions, because I wanted to keep my grades up in both classes. Thanks to them and some other wonderful ZHS full time Math Teachers, that I had at the time (Mrs, Kathy Mier for Algebra 1 and Mrs. Cynthia Coleman for Geometry), I maintained a high A in both classes, as a 9th and 10th grader. I'd even go back for the free Algebra II tutoring sessions and help out my fellow students, who may have been struggling with those classes. Coach/Dr. Brady was a wonderful man, and a great teacher. He will be missed. My sincerest Christian Sympathy and Condolences to the entire Brady family. May God give you all the peace and comfort you all need, during this difficult time. In Christ's name I pray, Amen.

Very Sincerely

Dear Annette, Shawn, Pat, Mike, Scott, Warren and your families,
Our condolences to you on the loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. Coach Brady was a winning football coach and a big winner in working with young men. He believed football offered opportunities for young men of all backgrounds to develop lifelong values. His Christian convictions were evidence in his relationships were evidenced in his relationships in all areas of his life. His "down home" Southern background along with his educational background made for many analogies and descriptions of situations which could be humorous and at times profound. I cherish the years I worked with Coach as his assistant and the ensuing years of friendship with him and his family. Fondly in Christ, Gary and Ingrid Wynveen, Appleton, WI.
