He left his beloved town of Briggsville after high school to work in the state of Washington. While working in Washington, he met and married his only true love Roxey German, with a 2009 wedding anniversary of seventy-one years. After Grady and Roxey's wedding they moved to Modesto, California.

He took charge of getting persons from the community to man the new firehouse, and as Chief took command to see that all were trained. He was active in the Methodist Church, the Mt. Zion Cemetery, and worked diligently to improve the roads, highways and the rural telephone service in the Briggsville area.
