Kenneth J. Grady, age 60, passed away on Thursday, September 8, 2022, at the Hellenic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Canton, Massachusetts, surrounded by his loving family.  Born in Boston, Massachusetts on August 9, 1962, he was the son of the late Thomas J. and Dorothy E. (McCarthy) Grady.  He was raised in Dedham, Massachusetts, where he graduated from Dedham High School with the Class of 1980.  Kenny continued his education at ITT Technical Institute in Norwood, earning his associates degree in automotive technology.


Kenny had a long career in the automotive industry as a master mechanic.  There was never a car in his bay that he couldn't fix.  After settling in Walpole, Kenny took a position with Tire and Auto Specialists in Walpole, where he helped countless clients with their automotive needs and concerns. 


While Kenny worked hard, he always made time to enjoy himself.  As an avid Boston sports fan, Kenny could be found watching the New England Patriots at Finnegan's Wake in Walpole with all his friends.  He also looked forward to spending time with his family at his sister's home on Lake Winnipesauke in New Hampshire.  Back at home, Kenny loved watching his favorite Arnold movies and listing to his play list of Classic Rock.
