HAMILTON: James E. Broedel, known to many as Poppy, 82, of Madison Lane, passed away peacefully with family by his side, Monday, February 8, 2021 at Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare in New Hartford.
He was born December 7, 1938 in Oriskany Falls, NY, a son of Francis, Sr. and Mary Brady Broedel and was a graduate of Oriskany Falls High School. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army. Jim found his greatest joy in his family. He was known in the Hamilton community for supporting his grandchildren and their peers at sporting events, school plays, dance recitals and more. He was the biggest fan in the crowd. Those who knew Poppy remember him as the man who was always willing to lend a hand with a smile on his face. He always had a love for animals, the Hallmark Channel, WWE wrestling and reading Chicken Soup for the Soul books with his coffee.
Surviving are his children, Mary Broedel of Utica; Jamie Broedel of Hamilton; Steven Broedel and his wife, Jessica of Eaton; his beloved grandchildren, Nathan Broedel and partner, Charlie Cook of Utica and their son, Luca Jayce; Matthew Broedel of Rochester; Kaylin Broadwell of Marcy; Mikenna and Mikyla Broedel of Eaton; sisters-in-law, Dana Broedel of N. Brookfield and Joan Broedel of New Hartford; many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his brothers and sisters-in-law, Jake, Bill, Bob and Meg, Frank ”Tubby” and Cathie Broedel.
Friends are invited to call at the Burgess & Tedesco Funeral Home, 25 Broad St., Hamilton on Sunday, February 14, from 2-4pm. Due to current health protocols, masks are required.
Contributions in his memory may be made to the Hamilton Sports Booster Club, PO Box 131, Hamilton, NY 13346
