John A. Brady

Stock brokerage worker

John A. Brady, a native of Baltimore who worked for stock brokers, died Friday at a veterans hospital in Tampa, Fla., of kidney disease. He was 65.

A memorial Mass for Mr. Brady, who had lived in Sarasota, Fla., since 1968, was to be offered at 10 a.m. today at the Incarnation Roman Catholic Church in Sarasota.

The former resident of Roland Park retired about seven years ago after working in Sarasota for Dean Witter Reynolds Inc. and Kashner Securities. In Baltimore, he had worked for Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner & Smith Inc. and for White, Weld and Co.

The Baltimore native was educated at the Calvert School, the Gilman School, Yale University and the University of Colorado, from which he graduated.

He served in the Navy during World War II and was a member of the Disabled American Veterans and the American Legion.

He also did volunteer work for organizations in Sarasota, including the American Cancer Society.

He is survived by his wife, the former Mary E. Herron; two daughters, Robin E. Brady of New York City and E. Wren Brady of Alexandria, Va.; three stepdaughters, Regina E. Friedman of Broad Run, Va., Roberta M. Prettyman of Sarasota and Lisa M. Walter of Tampa; two sons, John A. Brady Jr. of Sarasota and Clifford D. Brady of Oak Park, Ill.; two stepsons, Michael H. Walter of Sarasota and Philip J. Walter of Ocala, Fla.; two sisters, Eleanor B. Fenwick of Owings Mills and Emily N. Marshall of Baltimore; two brothers, George M. Brady Jr. of Chevy Chase and the Rev. James H. T. Brady of Grant Town, W.Va.; and 10 grandchildren.

The family suggests memorial contributions to the National Kidney Foundation of Southwestern Florida in Venice, Fla., or to St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church in Grant Town.

John S. Kavetsky

Army sergeant major

Retired Army Sgt. Maj. John S. Kavetsky, who was also retired as a civilian employee of the Army and was awarded the Silver Star in the Korean War, died Saturday of cancer at the Greater Laurel Beltsville Hospital.

A Mass of Christian burial for Sergeant Kavetsky, who was 68 and lived in Odenton for 30 years, was to be offered at 10 a.m. today at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, 1283 Odenton Road.

He retired from the Army in 1974 after 29 years of service starting at the end of World War II and including duty in Vietnam and Korea.

The Silver Star was awarded for taking over his platoon in a firefight in which the commanding officer was killed and for pulling a wounded soldier to cover.

After his retirement, the Pittston, Pa., native worked at Fort Meade as a civilian personnel specialist until he retired from that job in 1986.

He was fond of horse racing and was a Washington Redskins fan.

His survivors include his wife, the former Alice A. Remas; three daughters, Alice A. Kavetsky of Stevensville, Mary A. Golden of Columbia and Kathleen K. Plitt of Crofton; a son, Robert A. Kavetsky of Gambrills; and six grandchildren.
