Beloved Husband of Ilse Laucks-Haddad of Taunton MA and Boynton Beach FL and her daughters Stefanie Thomas and Heidi Iozza.
Richard M Haddad, age 88, passed away Saturday, February 6th, 2021 in Boynton Beach Florida from complications with Corvid-19. He was the son of the late Mitchell & Mae Haddad.
Richard M Haddad was born on August 5th, 1932 in Boston. Dick spent his whole 69-year career starting in 1949 working for Krohn-Hite Corporation now located in Brockton MA. He started sweeping floors in Cambridge MA after high school and retired as the company’s President and owner. He was the first employee George Hite and Earl Krohn hired when they started the company. He worked every job in the company over the years. For years he worked his job during the day, and at night was going to college. He graduated Wentworth Institute of Technology in 1959 with an Associate Degree in Electronics. In the 70’s when Nixon was President, Dick made two trips to the Soviet Union and a trip to Red China to try to open trade. Something that was amazing, since both were closed societies. He also traveled the world doing trade shows. Key customers are aerospace, military, universities, and manufacturing.
