James Edward Broder, age 86, was called home to be with his heavenly father on April 16, 2024.

James was born September 28, 1937 to parents Michael and Sophie (Bartol) Broder. James was a devout Catholic and member of St. Patrick’s Church, which is now St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Ripon, and a member of the Knights of Columbus. He served in the National Guard and Army. He worked at Mercury Marine for 35 years, where he retired. He volunteered on many occasions and took mission trips to various locations throughout the country.

James also made lasting memories with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren by taking them on vacations and spontaneous visits as he was passing through on trips. He loved the outdoors, and could often be found gardening when he wasn’t hunting or hiking.
