Maxwell Gratton Obituary, Death Cause – Maxwell Gratton has sadly passed away as a result of this. We express our heartfelt sympathies. His cousins will carry on the traditions he established. In addition to having completed his high school education at Johnson City High School, he was also a member of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. At the YMCA in Binghamton, New York, where he was a member, one of his favorite things to do there was to go swimming.
In addition to that, he had a deep interest in photography. Funeral services are scheduled to take place at the J.A. McCormack Sons Funeral Home in Binghamton on Wednesday at two o’clock in the afternoon. The funeral home can be found at 141 Main Street. The Reverend Ernest A. Steffensen is going to act as the master of ceremonies for the event. On June 5, 1965, they participated in a ceremony to exchange their wedding vows.
In that time period, Max was employed as a research chemist in the state of Delaware. His initiatives included the development of fumeless galvanizing fluxes, paints with a high concentration of zinc, uses for colloidal silica, and detergent builders. As a result of his work on fumeless galvanizing fluxes, he was awarded patents for his inventions in the countries of Belgium, Great Britain, and Italy. After moving back to Kansas, Kevin found work with Olin Water Services as the Laboratory Manager. Additionally, he began teaching chemistry at Johnson County Community College in the evenings. Both of these positions required him to commute.
