Watertown – Mr. Martin V. 'Mattie' Broderick, of Watertown, formerly of West Newton, died on Thursday, September 28, 2017 in Brigham and Women's Hospital. He was 79.

Mattie was born in Galway, Ireland on January 2, 1938, the son of the late Martin and Mary (Monaghan) Broderick. From a young age he took an interest in building and over the years he would became a master craftsman. Anything he built, he took pride in and it didn't matter how long it might take. When anyone was looking for Mattie at home he could either be found in his garage or basement completing a new project to perfection.

In June of 1964 he made his move to the U.S. and it is here where he met the love of his life, Margaret M. 'Peggy' Dolan. The pair were married in St. Mary's Church in Dedham on May10, 1969. They settled in West Newton where they would raise their children and had moved to Watertown in 2001. He was proud of his Irish heritage and was a fan of the Galway Hurling team. He worked hard to provide for his family and was honored to have recently received his 50 year pin from the Local 275 Carpenter's Union in Newton.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Margaret M. 'Peggy' Broderick; his children; Lydia A. Broderick of Framingham, Michelle E. Broderick of Newton and Martin J. Broderick of Ashland; his siblings, Bro. Marcellous (Seamus) Broderick of Galway City, Ireland and Mary Gillispie and her husband, Edward, of Framingham. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews and his loyal dogs, Guinness and Benji.

He was also the brother of the late Michael, Thomas and Jack "Sean"' Broderick and Kathleen Daily.

Family and friends will honor and remember Martin's life by gathering for calling hours in The Joyce Funeral Home, 245 Main Street (Rte. 20), Waltham on Sunday, October 1st from 2 to 5 p.m. and again at 8 a.m. on Monday morning before leaving in procession to Saint Patrick's Church, 212 Main Street, Watertown where his Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 9 a.m. Burial will follow in Calvary Cemetery, Waltham.
