Joseph C. Addington, Jr. was born in October of 1924. Joseph, Jr. attended Virginia Military Institute for two years (1941 – 1943) and then served in the Army for three years.  He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1948 and joined the family business.     

Addington & Beaman Lumber survived the Depression thanks to integrating a plywood business into the company.  After the Depression, the lumber business throughout the nation was slow to recover.  Some revival was stimulated by mechanization – the power saw evolved.  Then came World War II and government demands on the lumber industry multiplied calling for fantastic efforts to meet the demand.

Mr. Beaman died in 1970 and his interest in the company was purchased by J.C. Addington, Sr. and J.C. Addington, Jr.*

Joseph C. Addington, Jr. died on November 16, 2004.
