April 26, 2002

Edwin T. Brady, a retired Air Force officer who developed communications standards and technology for the military, died of heart complications Saturday at his home in Albuquerque, N.M. He was 84.

The Baltimore native attended Towson High School, where he was captain of the soccer and baseball teams, and briefly took classes at the Baltimore College of Commerce before joining the Army in 1941.

He transferred in 1947 to the Air Force, where he developed communication procedures for landing planes and conducted research. He retired in 1963 with the rank of lieutenant colonel.

After finishing his college education at the University of New Mexico, Mr. Brady taught language and reading at an Albuquerque high school until 1970 and then published teaching manuals.

Mr. Brady met his first wife, the former Genevieve Garey, an Army nurse, during a wartime assignment in Hawaii, and they married in 1943. She died in 1991.

Mr. Brady made frequent trips back to Baltimore to visit family and attend Oriole games.

A memorial service will be held today in Albuquerque.

He is survived by his wife, the former Ruth Kamer, whom he married in 1996; a son, Patrick Brady of Houston; a daughter, Michele M. Brady of Nacogdoches, Texas; two brothers, Donald C. Brady of Baltimore and Norman C. Brady of Los Alamitos, Calif.; a sister, M. Benedict Brady of Baltimore; and two grandsons.
