RIP: Mark Francis Broderick – Project 2996

Mark Broderick died on 9/11/2001 in New York City, a casualty of the attacks by terrorists. He is survived by his wife Carolina and three sons, Matthew, Andrew and James. 40 Years old at the time of his death, he graduated from St John’s University on Staten Island and lived in Old Bridge, NJ with his family.

He had made a life long friend in Chris Dowd while fraternity brothers in college. Mark always called to wish him happy birthday.

Mark was an accountant at Cantor Fitzgerald, L.P., having recently joined the company the prior April. He worked on the 101st Floor of the World Trade Center.

Mark grew up in Bayonne, NJ and had picked up the nickname “Sparky.” It suited him. As a father, he loved getting home to put his sons to bed, and then spent his weekend doing things with the family, since he worked long hours during the week. He followed in the footsteps of his father to be a certified public accountant and coached his oldest son’s Little League team at the Old Bridge Roman catholic Church.

Mark sounded like a great man, who loved his worked, but loved his family equally. We lost a fine man on 9/11/2001 in Mark Broderick, and so did his family.
