Roy Halladay’s wife Brandy Halladay lived in the same town when the pair was growing up. Their story goes way back. They initially met as children in Colorado, where both of their families lived. Brandy’s family eventually moved in high school and the two families lost touch, but their paths crossed once again as when Brandy’s family moved back to Colorado in 1996. Sensing this was fate, Roy and Brandy took their relationship to the next level and married in November 1998.
The interesting thing about Roy and Brandy is that they were both raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, aka they were Mormons. After you consider that, two years of dating before marriage actually might seem like an acceptable amount of time. Perhaps it was the realization that an undergarment won’t protect you from the devil, or maybe it was something else entirely, but the Halladay’s no longer practice as Mormons.
Roy and Brandy have two children, both boys. Throughout his time in Toronto and Philadelphia, the family has been active with community charities and eventually started their own – The Halladay Family Foundation – to benefit the many different initiatives they deem worthy of support.
