My condolences to the Frady family for Mike's too-early passing. I knew him for many years as a genuinely friendly guy -- an expert at his business, a skilled fisherman, a determined golfer, and a man who was friends with just about anybody he talked to. I hope and trust he's now with his beloved Brutus and among his ancestors, drinking a beer and laughing about his golf game.

Thoughts and prayers for the family and friends of Mike. We have been friends a long time and I am going to miss him. He had a lot of friends that will miss him so much. Im thankful for the almost two years I was able to work for him. We had lots of laughs. This is just a temporary separation until we meet him on the other side. RIP Mike

Dear Woodrow and Artie, I cannot imagine the heaviness of your heart at this time. Mike was a wonderful person; always so kind. I wish I had some magical words but know there are none. Our family will be praying for strength in the days ahead. God bless you all.

We first met Frady when we moved to NC 17 years ago. He was such a kind and generous person. Fun and entertaining with a great sense of humor. Ill never forget the day he came to fix my HVAC and stayed all day to help me replace outlets and switches in the entire house. Who does that? Only a great friend who knew I needed help. Mike will be dearly missed by many, many friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Mike and I used laugh and talk all the time at Backstage, when I worked. What a wonderful and generous man. I will miss him smile. I will never forget when he came in with a old Murphys shirt. I took a picture of him to put on Facebook. He wanted me to tag Mike Montgomery. Who was his best friending the owner of Backstage( Murphy). I will really miss that guy
