Steve Braddock, CEO, Braddock Metallurgical
Steve Braddock, CEO, Braddock Metallurgical, passed away on February 16, 2017 at the age of 69, surrounded by family. He was the son of William Ray and Helen Good Braddock, who preceded him in death.

Steve was raised in Martinsville, NJ and served as a medic in the United States Navy before joining his father and brother Bill at Braddock Heat Treating in Bridgewater, NJ. Steve and Bill took over the reins in 1971, eventually opening their second location in Jacksonville, FL in 1984. Over the years, the business has grown into Braddock Metallurgical, an industry leader with 8 locations in Atlanta, GA; Charlotte, NC; Tampa, FL; Daytona Beach, FL; Boynton Beach, FL; and Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Steve and Bill believed in excellence through people, with a strong commitment to their employees and customers. Braddock Metallurgical continues this philosophy under its third generation of family ownership, with Steve’s sons Clay and Griff. Steve and his wife of 46 years, Sue, resided in Flemington, NJ before relocating to Amelia Island, FL in 2001. After undergoing surgery for Liposarcoma in 2006, Steve and Sue were able to travel the world, and enjoy time with family and friends. No matter the circumstances, he always managed to bounce back with a smile to play golf, drink wine, and travel. He was a role model to all who knew him, and confronted adversity with humor and grace. His quick wit and generous spirit will be missed by all who had the opportunity to know him.

Steve is survived by his loving wife Sue, sons Clayton (Valerie), Griffith (Mary Margaret), and grandchildren Blair Ann, Mary Elyse, and Kellis Stephen. Steve is also survived by siblings William (Sheila), Judi Andrews (George), Robert (Carolyn), and numerous nieces and nephews.

Braddock Metallurgical Featured In Industrial Heat Magazine
It’s hard to believe that Braddock Metallurgical started with one salt pot furnace. But that’s how it began, when William Braddock Sr. heat treated tooling for local machine shops.
