Zachary Broderick passed away unexpectedly on December 4, 2019 at the age of 26.
Zach was born on June 23,1993 in Newton to Tom and Theresa Broderick. Along with his parents, Zach is survived by his older sister Lindsay Ranahan, brother-in-law Kevin and nephew Kevin of South Boston, his older brothers Andrew of Mansfield and Nicholas of State College, PA, his younger sister Hayley of Mansfield, as well as his grandmother Christine DeMarco of Mansfield and many aunts, uncles, cousins.
Zach had a passion for motorcycles, especially his prized Harley Davidson. That passion brought him on many adventures through at about half of the 50 states.
Zach was a self-taught craftsman, working with wood, metal and glass. He built an addition to his garage for his motorcycles. He recently finished a beautiful trunk crafted from wood and metal using his welding skills. The trunk is a Christmas gift for his parents.
Zach proudly served in the United Sates Marine Corp from 2012-2016. During that time, his fellow marines came to know Zach’s infectious sense of humor and his never-ending smile.
Zach was a lover of life and took advantage of all it has to offer. His family and friends meant the world to him, just as he meant the world to all those who were touched by him.
Zach will be remembered for his beautiful auburn hair and beard and will be sorely missed. The world is a lesser place without him.
