Rady was a real friend to Kathryn and me and his life was meaningful to us. His instructions on specialty sewing to Kathryn enabled her to make prettier dresses for our twin granddaughters. He even gave dance instructions to Kathryn and proved beyond a doubt that she would never enjoy "dancing" with me after dancing with him. We pray that all his family will cherish the great memories you have of Rady and that the memories will brighten those dark days that come as you realize how much you miss him. You were privileged to have a great man in your midst. We extend our sympathy to you all. Morris and Kathryn Matson

Goodbye to my dear friend and neighbor. He was so nice about looking around his property and ours to insure that all was well. At Christmas time I enjoyed making his favorite holiday pie. It was always followed by a beautiful, personalized, thank you card, it was a joy to see. He ran one of life's good races. May he rest in eternal peace.

Mr. McCormack was my 7th grade band teacher at Handley Jr. High in 1964. I was sad to hear of his passing. I would like you to know that in all these years that have passed I have never forgotten him, the great times we had in his class, or his dedication to helping his students. The video was a great reminder of the great man he was.

Uncle Rady (Rady McCormack) was my dance partner and my daughter Mary's for many years. He was a neat kind wonderful man. He was more than my uncle, he was my best friend, mentor, square and round dance partner and sometimes traveling companion. I will miss him. He is in heaven with our maker and beloved family members.
