Brad E. Magro, Age 68, of Cranberry Township PA, died peacefully on Wednesday, June 19th, 2024 at his home surrounded by his loving family. Born in Fairmont, West Virginia, Brad made his mark in the world with a passion for learning, unwavering optimism, and dedication to his family.

Brad graduated from Morgantown High School, went on to earn his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and his Juris Doctorate Degree from West Virginia University, and his Master of Business Administration from Syracuse University.

Brad worked at General Electric Company/Lockheed Martin in Syracuse, NY and King of Prussia, PA for thirty-five years. He experienced his greatest professional excitement and joy while working in Naval Electronics and Sensor Systems as the Program Manager for the Seawolf class submarine combat system and Electronic Warfare Programs. Before his retirement, Brad moved to the Pittsburgh, PA area where he worked as a Global Director of Program Management for JOY Global and at PNC Financial Services as a Vice-President of Project Portfolio Management in the IT department.

Brad was a fun-loving man who found the positive in everything and enjoyed life. He loved to read, travel, follow college sports and cheer for his beloved WVU Mountaineers and all Pittsburgh professional teams. Above all else, Brad loved his family and being a volunteer in his sons’ activities. He was a cub scout leader in Marcellus, NY and Lancaster, PA and a merit badge counselor and Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 99 of Lancaster, PA. He coached his sons’ baseball, football, soccer, and basketball teams, learned to be a Quarter Midget crew chief, and kept time at swim competitions. Brad was also a First grade Catechist at St. Josephs Church on the Hill in Camillus, NY and a member of the Knights of Columbus in Cranberry Township, PA. Brad also enjoyed ballroom dancing with his wife. His tall stature made him a wonderful waltz partner.

Brad was predeceased in death by his parents, James and Mary Lucille “Lou” Magro, his parents-in-law John and Esther Solazzo, his sister-in-law Janice Botsford (Solazzo) and brother-in-law Robert Solazzo.

Surviving are his loving and devoted wife of 36 years, Anne; sons Joseph (Marie) of Longmont, CO; Victor of Cranberry Twp, PA; Andrew of Sagamore Hills, OH and his toddler grandson Elliot Bradley of Longmont, CO. Also surviving are his brother Jim (Terry) Magro of Amelia Island, FL and his sister Janice Magro of Rock Hill, SC; eight sisters-in-law and five brothers-in-law; 22 nieces and nephews.

    I’m sorry for your family’s loss. I was hired by Brad into his PNC Team not long before he left. Although I knew him only a short while, it was obvious that he was a very good, level-headed, intelligent and happy person who placed caring about people above all else. I’m sure he will be missed.
