James E. Brading died on Nov. 28 at his home in Johnson City. He was 85. A U. S. Army veteran and a 1961 graduate of Yale Law School, Brading practiced law in Upper East Tennessee for nearly 50 years, first with Wilson, Worley & Gamble, then as a sole practitioner, and finally with Herndon, Coleman, Brading & McKee, where he spent the bulk of his career.  He served for one year as a Circuit Judge for Tennessee’s First Judicial District. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the ETSU Quillen College of Medicine, to which Brading donated his body for medical education.
