Michael Hugh Braddock

March 18, 1949June 18, 2020

Michael Hugh Braddock, age 71, passed away suddenly from an aortic aneurysm, at Salem Hospital on June 18, 2020.

Born in Vestal, NY on March 18, 1949, he was a son of the late Hugh D. and Lula M. (Culpepper) Braddock. Following his education, Mike proudly served in the United States Army during Vietnam. When Mike returned home, he tried his hand at different jobs before settling down as a maintenance worker for Loring Towers in Salem. He then went on to work for Honda as a parts driver for many years until his retirement.

Mike was the heart and soul of his family. He was a proud patriarch who was lovingly referred to by many as “Uncle Mike”. Whether it was coaching and playing in his adult softball league, umpiring games, or watching the Red Sox, Patriots, or Celtics, Mike loved being involved with and watching sports. He was also known for his incredible sense of humor, and his ability to tell the best jokes and stories. Above all else though, Mike loved his family, and will be forever remembered as being a light in their lives.

Surviving Mike are his children, Christopher Braddock and his wife Becca, and Michael Braddock and his wife Tabitha, all of Cocoa Beach, FL, and Daniel Brook of Lynn; his grandchildren, Brianna, Christopher, Ayden, Karsyn, Brady, Shai, Micha, Jordan, and Alyssa Braddock, and Damien Brook; his great-grandchildren, Braden and Holly Braddock; his nieces and nephew, Rick Anderson, Shelly Thompson, and Tammy Paragona, as well as many other beloved great nieces and nephews, and friends.

Mike was the beloved father of the late Shawne Ricciardelli, who passed on May 25, 1985, and brother of the late Josephine Gibbons.

Arrangements: At the request of the family, services will be held at a later date, at Pine Grove Cemetery, Lynn.

So sorry to hear of Mike's passing. He was a great guy. We worked together at Honda North for a few years and he was well liked by his customers and coworkers. He was always talking about his family, especially the kids. Our deepest condolences to you all,
