Job Braddock Obituary

Job S. Braddock, Jr., 87, passed away on Wednesday February 28, 2024, surrounded by his loving family.

Lee's remarkable journey began after graduating from Rutgers, where he made history as the first-ever commissioned officer to graduate from the university and went on to serve in the United States Navy. His service to the country he loved was exemplary, marking the beginning of a life devoted to both patriotism and community.

After his military service, Lee embarked on an entrepreneurial path, demonstrating his resilience and determination. Beyond his professional pursuits, Lee devoted nearly five decades to Rotary International, embodying the organization's motto of "service above self." His commitment was further recognized as he served as a District Governor for Rotary, representing the greater good, even traveling to Australia in the name of service.

Lee was a family man at heart, finding joy in spending time with his loved ones. He is survived by his loving wife, Deborah Braddock, four sons Steven Braddock, Jon Braddock, John Leighty, Michael Vest Braddock, one daughter Kathleen Braddock, 17 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and his brother, Robert Braddock. Lee's dedication to family extended beyond blood relations, as he cherished the bonds he created with friends over the years.

Lee's passion for sports, particularly baseball and soccer during his time at Rutgers University, reflected his vibrant spirit and zest for life. His love for these sports mirrored the teamwork, camaraderie, and dedication he brought to every aspect of his life.

As we bid farewell to Lee, let us remember him for his selfless service, love for family and friends, and the indelible mark he left on both his community and Rotary International. May his memory inspire us to live with the same commitment to service above self, as he did throughout his remarkable life.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend his Graveside Service on Thursday, March 7th at 1:30 PM at the Gloucester County Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 240 Tuckahoe Rd., Williamstown.
