'A Remarkable Smile'

Mark Francis Broderick had a remarkable smile. It made everyone feel at ease with him, said Chris Dowd, his friend since they were fraternity brothers at St. John's University on Staten Island, N.Y.

He had a good memory, too. He never forgot to call Mr. Dowd on his birthday. And Mr. Broderick vividly recalled the first time he saw the woman he would marry, in 1991. "He remembered exactly what I was wearing that day," said Carolina Broderick. (It was a black skirt and pink blouse.)

Organized and thorough B traits one wants in an accountant B Mr. Broderick was also known for taking his time B so much so that he earned an ironic nickname, "Sparky," many years ago. The easy-going Mr. Broderick liked it and it stuck.

He joined Cantor Fitzgerald in April and when his 40th birthday came around on Sept. 2, he told his wife he wanted a family vacation, not a party. They took their sons, Matthew 7, Andrew 3, and James, 16 months, to Hershey, Pa.

Eulogizing his friend at a service recently, Mr. Dowd asked, "How many of us can remember him standing, smiling, with one or more of his kids hanging from his neck?"
