He was promoted to Instrument Maker II and joined the machine shop staff in the Chemistry Department in November of 1973, he then took over supervision of the machine shop in December of 1975. At his retirement ceremony in 2000, it was said that Grady was to the man who found no task beneath his dignity. He continued to work part-time for UT for an additional 9 years until they could find someone with his skill level in heliarc welding. Grady loved playing golf, watching sporting events, spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and taking care of his dogs. He served the Liberty Hill and surrounding communities in many ways. He was a member of the volunteer fire department and chief for over 16 years, coached little league baseball, umpired, and worked as a UIL Basketball referee for over 20 years.
