Pat Brady ACTOR


Pat Brady was born on December 31st, 1914 in Toledo, Ohio with the birth name Robert Ellsworth Patrick Aloysious O'Brady.  He is best remembered as playing cowboy, Roy Rogers comical sidekick on over 90 episodes on "The Roy Rogers Show" (1957).
When he was just four years old he had his first chance at performing on stage in a production called, "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch" and from this point on he knew how much he loved being a part of entertaining viewers. 
Brady found work as a guitarist in 1935 performing in California and became friends with a country western singer known as, Leonard Slye who was a member of the signing group, "Sons of the Pioneers".  Later, Slye took on the stage name, Roy Rogers and Brady took on the role as Roy Rogers comic relief.
Pat Brady also appeared in a number of Charles Starrett Westerns at Columbia Pictures in 1937 and then in 1940 he began working with Republic.  It was in 1951 when Roy Rogers transitioned to television work that he chose to take Brady with him and Brady was finally a household name.
Even after the "Roy Rogers" series came to an end, the two men continued to appear together on television and making personal appearances.  In 1962 both men returned to television briefly appearing on ABC's "The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Show" and in 1959, he even rejoined "The Sons of the Pioneers".
However, by the mid 1960's, Brady's career was beginning to decline and in 1972, he admitted himself into an alcoholic rehabilitation center.  Only one day later after checking himself in to get help, Pat Brady passed away on February 27th, 1972 at the age of fifty seven in Green Mountain Falls, Colorado
