It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death of Walter Brady who served on the USS Caperton in 1957-1958.

Walter, my "life partner" of 23 years, and I attended the reunion in Bath, Maine in the summer of 2000 and enjoyed it very much. In the summer of 2006, he was diagnosed with a very aggressive brain cancer. Walter battled cancer in his characteristic heroic but understated fashion. He died at my home in Cambridge, Massachusetts on 23 January 2007 at the age of 73 years.

He was, the second oldest child and oldest son in a family of six children, a loving and beloved son, brother, uncle great uncle and friend. He was the love of my life. He graduated from the College of the Holy Cross (where he was a member of ROTC) and received graduate degrees from Harvard and Indiana Universities. When he died he was Associate Professor, Emeritus of mathematics at Connecticut College, where he had taught for 34 years. Walter loved running, sailing, playing the piano and staying in touch with friends from many parts of his life.
