James Matthew Brogan, of Fort Lauderdale, FL. and Upper Makefield, Pa., died Saturday, August 8, 2020 of complication from the Coronavirus at Holy Cross Hospital, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
We feel thankful a family member was with him, holding his hand as he passed; Jimmy was not alone and felt our love as he left this world for the next.
Jimmy was born in Philadelphia, PA on September 21, 1946, to the late Mary Graham Brogan and to the late Dr. John J. Brogan, M.D.
Jimmy is survived by his brother Buck Brogan and his wife Brenda, Kevin Brogan and his family, his sister Mary Anne Brogan and her husband Richard Bono, and his beloved “adopted children”, Kyle Bono, Courtney Bono, Colin Bono and Casey Bono, as well as his sister, Midge Brogan and her husband, Dixon Brown and his beloved nephew, Graham Brogan-Brown. He is survived by his late brother Thomas Brogan‘s family.
Jimmy also left behind many friends from travels around the globe.
Jimmy loved life and enjoyed it to the fullest. He traveled the world, from Antarctica to the Arctic, and in-between, still wanting to explore the sights unseen.
He lived life with no regrets.
Jimmy had many interests. As well as traveling, he especially loved his dogs, Toby, Holly and Tango. He had a passion for skiing, trains, boats, cars, (to name a few), and enjoyed socializing with family and friends.
James recently retired from BroMedicon, Inc., an Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring Service company which he founded in the early 90’s, to improve patient safety during various surgical procedures. His was the first IOM company in the U.S. to attain the Joint Commission Accreditation and consequently set standards for all other IOM companies to follow.
Because of the seriousness of the Covid19 pandemic, our wish is for his family and friends to stay safe and chose to forgo a formal funeral at this point. A virtual “Irish Wake” will be planned at a future date. In lieu flowers, we are asking for donations of any pictures one may have of James and email to UncleJimmy921@gmail.com with/ or in addition to any short stories about him as we plan to print up copies as a memorial to his life and give them out to friends and family.
James was left in the care of the Baird-Case Jordan-Fannin Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
