(Hixon) Brady.  After his high school graduation, Robert began his 30 year employment at General Motors Truck and Bus in Flint where he worked as a skilled tool and die maker.  He had the opportunity to learn and master the tool and die profession from many trade specific classes. After his time at General Motors, Robert decided to step away from the work force and enjoy his well-deserved retirement years doing the things he truly loved, such as fishing, hunting, and just spending time outdoors in the beauty of nature.  He had a sports passion about him, especially football, baseball, and golf.  He was a devout Christian and enjoyed being a member of the Lott Baptist Church in Glennie.  He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
