Grady Don Burke loved God‚ his family‚ life and being a firefighter. Not necessarily always in that order. Grady was the ultimate ñsmoke eater‚ oh‚ how he loved being a firefighter. It was his passion‚ his life‚ his utmost desire. He served the Houston Fire Department and the City of Houston for 12 years‚ achieving the rank of Captain for the last two years of his career. When he was not at his station‚ he was completely devoted to his family‚ church and friends. He was married to his wife Cindy‚ for 12 years‚ and they had three beautiful children together‚ Hannah‚ Hailey and Hunter. Grady was a ñbehind the scenes servant to God‚ his church and his fellow man. He was always ready and willing to help and never wanted credit for his deeds. He was loyal‚ funny‚ adventurous‚ courageous‚ handsome‚ and above all a gentleman. Grady was a genuine‚ kind-hearted individual with a soul the size of Texas. He is our true hero.
