BRODERICK Sr., RICHARD HOWARD - Lincoln  
LINCOLN - RICHARD HOWARD BRODERICK, SR. - "He was a quiet man, no one knew of his existence." He was born in Portland, Maine on March 26, 1925 - "a very good year" - the son of John H. Broderick and Dorothy Broderick. He was raised by his Uncle Leroy James and Aunt Helen of Windham, Maine. He was predeceased by his parents and brother John and his wife Jeanette; and their family. He was the beloved husband of Fay (Willett) Broderick. In addition to his wife of 58 years, he is survived by three sons, Michael, Richard Jr. and his fiancee Lynn, Paul and his wife Stephan, and the mother of his grandchildren Martha Novy-Broderick. He was a loving Pop to his grandchildren, Alison and Peter, Lauren and Mike, Ava, Casey, Erin and Papa to his triplet great-grandchildren, Barrett, Arlen and Charlotte and Kenna. The triplets always brought a smile to his face. He was so proud of his family. He was also pleased and proud of his office staff Beth and Anne. Richard served in both the Pacific and European/African Theaters during World War II and, like many others of his generation, he left high school in Portland and enlisted in the Navy in 1942. His service to his country in World War II extended from August 1942 to January 1946. He served as the primer man on one of the 16 inch guns on the Battleship U.S.S. Iowa (BB-61). He was in service on the Iowa when in November of 1943, it transported President Franklin D. Roosevelt to North Africa on his journey to Tehran for his conference with Churchill and Stalin. Also on board the Iowa were Admirals King and Leahy. During that trip a memorable moment occurred when the US.S. Porter accidentally fired a torpedo at the Iowa while the President was on board. On another occasion, Broderick was asked to explain his functions as a primer man after both General Marshall and General "Hap" Arnold climbed down the ladder in his gun chamber to the primer man's platform. For a short time he also served on the Iowa sister ship, the US.S. Wisconsin in that same capacity and thereafter, he requested a transfer to Florida for training as a "frog-man" and became a member of Underwater Demolition Team UDT 23. A bronze plaque bearing his name as a member of Team 23 is on the wall of the US Navy UDT - SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Florida. In 1950 he graduated cum laude from the University of Maine Law School and became a member of the Maine State Bar. He worked in the Office of OPS as a special agent in the enforcement division under Ed Muskie. He practiced law in Portland and in 1956 he was elected to the 98th Legislature. He moved to Lincoln in 1959 where he continued the practice of law until his retirement. In 1964 he was elected by a joint session of the Maine Legislature to the Governor's Executive Council and then served as Chairman of the Governor's Executive Council from 1965-1966. In 1964 and again in 1968 he was a delegate to the Democratic National Conventions. He was a former member of JATO Highlands and the Green Valley Golf Course. He was Attorney for the Town of Lincoln for 28 years and a member of the VFW. He loved to write poetry and was published in Who's Who. He loved music, books and golf and enjoyed playing keyboard and singing Karaoke with Fay. Most of all he loved his family and friends. As you can see by the beginning of this obituary, Dick had a good sense of humour. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Lincoln Historical Society, 29 West Broadway, Lincoln ME 04457 or to a charity of one's choice. A May date will be announced later for his service. On line condolences may be left at www.clayfuneralhome.com .
