Mitchell Charles MacGrady was an outgoing man dedicated to his family, friends and community.
Mr. MacGrady, a property manager and realtor, died in the early morning hours of Monday, October 8th from injures he sustained when he lost control of his motorcycle. He was 49.
Mr. MacGrady was born in Sidney, Montana, moving to College Station with his family in his early teens. He lived in Austin for several years, working in the entertainment industry as a manager for several nightclubs. He returned to his “Texas hometown” in 1991 to pursue a career in real estate and be near his family.
Riding his beloved Harley was his passion. Whether it was a short trip to the next bike show, a charity toy run or a long scenic haul to another state, he enjoyed riding alone or with friends. He was well-respected and made friends easily. He wanted people to see him for who he was and wasn’t really concerned with an “image.” His philosophy of life was “take me as I am.” He had tremendous wit, a wicked sense of humor and his friends and family were often caught between the two.
Mr. MacGrady is survived by his parents, Karmen and Gene Stevens of Bryan; three sisters, Roberta MacGrady of Glendive, MT., Tracy Stevens of Las Vegas, NV, Kolleen Sulik and brother in law, Pete Sulik of College Station, niece Laine Sulik and nephew Travis Loy of Glendive, MT.
At Mitch’s request there will not be a funeral. Instead there will be a time for remembering and celebrating his life. A Sunset Service is scheduled for Monday, October 15th at 7 p.m. at Harvestfield Church @ Yankee’s Tavern, Carlos, Texas (Hwy 30 @ FM 244)
May your spirit be lifted on mighty wings of eagles.
In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial contributions be made to one of the following charities Mitch supported:
Scotty’s House or The Lake Loon Toy Run, c/o Citizen’s Bank, P.O. Box 518, Somerville, TX. 77879.
