Let the memory of Jack be with us forever.
  • 84 years old
  • Born on October 9, 1934 in Brooklyn, New York, United States.
  • Passed away on April 7, 2019 in Stony Brook, New York, United States.

Jack Brodbar passed away on Sunday April 7. He was a wonderful loving Husband to his wife Ruby, his son Aaron Brodbar and daughter Susan Richters as well as his daughter and son in law Lisa Brodbar and Paul Richters. He was also a loving Grandfather to Emma and Wyatt Brodbar.

Jack proudly served in the United States Navy in the mid 1950's, before marrying his wife Ruby in 1958. Jack and Ruby had kids, Susan and Aaron in 1962 and 1967 before moving their family to Hauppauge NY in 1968. 

    Jack was a veteran of the retail and aftermarket automotive industry having spent the bulk of his working career first as a corporate Merchandising Manager for Time Square Stores in Brooklyn NY and than as a VP for Auto Barn and later in the same capacity for Aid Auto Stores until his retirement.

He loved to work with his hands doing anything and everything around the house. There was no job too big or small for him to tackle. He was a fan of NASCAR and took many trips with friends and his son to the Daytona 500. He also enjoyed anything related to the military. He was also a big fan of old westerns and war films. And of course he loved his cars! 

Lastly, he loved his family. He put his family first above himself and all else. He was a great Husband, Father, Grandfather and Friend to all who knew him.

He sounds like a wonderful man who dedicated himself to family. How fortunate to have him in your lives. My sympathy to you, Cookie, and all whose lives he touched. May found memories gently replace your sorrow.
