Michael Patrick Broderick, 66, of Floyds Knobs, IN passed away on October 28, 2019, after a long struggle with pancreatic cancer. True to his Irish Heritage, Mike never met a stranger.

He personally coordinated the Knights of Columbus Christmas Day Breakfast for the homeless every year. Even Mike's hobby farm was a gift to others .Many friends and family especially his niece Mindy Avis, came to enjoy and follow the antics of the baby goats, chickens, pigs, and Mazie the donkey.;
In addition to his parents, Edward and Alice Broderick, he is preceded in death by a sister, Betsy Avis.
Mike is survived by his wife, Toni Broderick; sons, Patrick (Carmen) and Kevin (Amanda) Broderick; grandchildren, Thomas and Avery Broderick; a sister, Bridget (Bobby) Frank; a brother-in-law, Frank Avis, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and out-laws.
Friends and family will gather on Saturday, November 2, 2019, from 9-12:30 at Kraft Funeral Service, 708 East Spring Street with Mass to follow at 1 p.m. in the sanctuary at St. Mary Catholic Church, New Albany, IN.

My deepest sympathies to the Toni and the entire family. The Lord brought one of the truly good ones home. I always loved the way Mike would light up a room and make everyone around him feel better. And his heart was as big as his laugh.

I cherish the time on the golf course with Mike in July. It was a great morning and so much fun. A lasting memory of a great man.

I am sorry I cannot make it to New Albany for funeral and celebration of life. Please know I will be thinking of Mike, you and the entire family.

Toni ; probably some of my favorite verses are from Paul's second letter to his friend Timothy 4-7 when he talks about his death being near. About being good to all who has know him. About doing what is pleasing to our God. And finally, about claiming his just reward. I can think of no better words to describe my friend Mike and what God has in store for him eternally. I am a better man for have crossed paths with Mike Broderick

Mike and I met through work (Louisville Lightwave, Adelphia, Level 3). He took me under his wing day one! Never did he not take the time to answer my questions. I was fortunate to have lunch with him many times here lately. Fun and positive to the very end. God Speed Mike!

Most days with Mike were fun days. That sly smile was a sight that everyone loved. We have not seen him much in the past few years but he has always been a friend for life.
