Henry Curtis Haddock, a Kingstree native who turned a love of flying into a lifelong career, died on October 4, 2017. He was 66.

Mr. Haddock graduated from Kingstree High School before earning a degree in Aircraft Technology from Florence-Darlington Technical College. As an aircraft mechanic at the Florence airport, Mr. Haddock yearned to get off the ground. At 17, he learned to fly. He earned local notoriety when he built a 1949 Piper Clipper from a “pile of parts” he had purchased.

Alec Taylor of Taylor Helicopters saw potential in the young Mr. Haddock. He offered him his first flying gig, crop dusting with a Cessna “Ag Wagon” in Latta, SC. Several years later Mr. Haddock started his own company, Haddock Flying Service, Inc. The company used Hiller helicopters to spray timber and crops throughout the Southeast.

Mr. Haddock often piloted family and friends to his favorite vacation destination in Eleuthera, Bahamas. They enjoyed SCUBA diving, deep sea fishing, and cooking fresh catch. Over the course of his life, Mr. Haddock flew more than 30,000 hours. On October 4, he flew for the last time.

The youngest son of the late Dargan Carroll Haddock and the late Thelma Brown Haddock, Henry Haddock was a resident of Salters, SC.

He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Stephanie Lynn Haddock; son, Dargan Dewey “Dee” Haddock (Erica), of Pawleys Island; son, Ashley Clayton Haddock (Erin) of Pawleys Island; grandchildren, Henry James Haddock, Mary Clayton Haddock, Clayton Cartwright “Wright” Haddock, and Elizabeth Dargan Haddock; brother, Richard Brown Haddock (Bonita); brother, William Carroll Haddock (Peggy); and many more nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Mr. Haddock’s life will be held at the Haddocks’ hangar located at 1111 Gourdin Rd, Salters, SC on Saturday, October, 21, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. Memorial gifts may be made to Angel Flight Inc., 12345 East Skelly Drive Tulsa, OK  74128.
