Marge aand I were shocked and saddened to hear of Grady's untimely passing. I was privileged to work with him on many Military veteran's committees over the last 20+ years and he was a great leader. He will certainly be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mary and the family in this diffcult time.

Grady was the most giving person I have known. He loved his work and he loved giving back to others. His work with the 2010 Dallas Military Ball allowed us to achieve new heights of success in every area. We simply could not have had such a resounding gala event if it were not for Grady's planning and execution. He was always there from day one in the planning all the way through to the last item was closed out

It is with deep sadness and great shock at the news of thr tragic death of LTC Fairbairn, a fellow soldier and patriot. His last act of service to his country and community was to present the Resetve Officer Award to FWISD Cadets, earlier at the annual JROTC Final Review and Awards Ceremony. He was excited to serve the youth with price, passion, and selfless devotion to American Values and the next generation citizens of our city. Texas and this community has lost a fine officer who loved his country and our youth.

I worked with Grady in the ROA. He was always impassioned and determined to forward the work of our association. I know the MOAA members will miss him, too. His last act was to recognize young men and women of the Fort Worth JROTC for their outstanding achievements.

Roula and I cannot begin to describe the sadness we feel at losing such a good friend. Grady was a true patriot, a fine officer and professional who gave much of his time to further the cause of volunteerism for our community and our state. On behalf of the 4,000 members of the Department of Texas Reserve Officers Association we send our sincere condolences to Mary Fairburn and family at this very difficult time. We will miss you Grady!

You will always be in my heart cousin. I will always remember the year you were plowing the field, you knew that I was coming for a visit. You plowed into a rabbits nest and jumped down off the plow to catch me a baby jack rabbit. I named that rabbit Lynn after you. That was my prize rabbit. You will be missed. My Love Lynda
