According to Heavy.com, Galynn Brady was born and raised in Browerville, which is about an hour northwest of St. Cloud.
Sports writer Troy Gunderson has the backstory on Brady’s ties to Minnesota.
“Galynn Johnson, Gordon’s daughter and Tom’s mother, was born and raised in Browerville. She went on to work for Northwest Airlines and met Tom Brady Sr. They married and moved to San Mateo, Calif., had Tom Jr., and the rest is history. As a kid, Brady spent some time during the summer in Minnesota with Gordon and the rest of the family.”
