BRADY, Patrick Conor - January 17, 1955 - October 22, 2017
In his 63rd year, after a long struggle with addiction.
Patrick Conor Brady (Conor), loving son of Patricia and Charles Brady (predeceased), devoted brother to Christopher (predeceased) and John.
Loving brother-in-law to Vicky and doting uncle to Michael and Anthony.
Conor (Mr. Fixit), a denizen of North Toronto his entire life, was the handyman's handyman.
After working successfully through a succession of very technical jobs with no formal education, he started a handyman business because, as he said at the time, "I like helping people" and he wanted to be his own boss.
And help people he did. Conor would tackle any problem at any time and just about anywhere – and he never took a holiday. He was happiest when trying to solve a problem for someone.
Conor would have made an outstanding engineer, but formal education wasn't for him. But if you were stranded on a desert island he was your man – not only for his problem solving, but also for his genuine friendship and good company. He will be fondly remembered by all of his friends and clients in North Toronto.
Special thanks to "Mikey" Ross and John "Slats" Slattery, Conor's lifelong friends and who, truly were, friends to the end.
Friends may visit at the Trull Funeral Home (2704 Yonge St.), on Thursday, October 26th from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at the Blessed Sacrament Church on Friday, October 27th at 11 a.m. A private cremation to follow.
Burial of Conor's ashes to take place at a later date.
