Randolph "Randy" F. Brogan Obituary

Randolph Fredrick Brogan, 77, of Ogunquit, Maine, died Wednesday, October 4th, at Portsmouth Hospital, after a long battle with kidney disease.

Randolph (Randy) was born on November 15, 1945, in Middletown, NY to Randolph and Isabelle (Medrick) Brogan and moved to Hyde Park, NY when he was 8. Randy only had eyes for one woman, his beloved wife of 55 years, Sara (Sally). He first saw her on the playground and finally managed to get a date with her years later in High School. Randy and Sally were married in Poughkeepsie, NY in the summer of 1968 after college.

When Randy’s draft number was called in the Fall of 1968, he entered the Army and served his country in Vietnam as a combat medic. A member of Bravo Company’s 3rd Battalion, 25th Infantry Division, he was awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star with Valor for his heroism. Upon returning home he was stationed at Fort Sill, OK where their eldest son David was born in 1971.

Randy’s first job opportunity out of the Army launched his career in pharmaceutical sales, taking him to Connecticut, where he and Sally welcomed their second son Jeffery in 1975. Two years later the family relocated to Clay, NY, and later to Baldwinsville, NY. After the boys finished high school, Randy and Sally moved to North Hampton, NH for a time, before retiring to their beloved summer home in Ogunquit, ME 23 years ago.

Randy was a hard worker and well-respected by his colleagues. He made it a priority to attend as many of the boys’ cub scout and sporting events as possible and cherished family time at home. He especially loved holiday gatherings. In his free time, he enjoyed golfing, cross-country skiing on snow-covered golf courses, and routing for the Syracuse Orangemen.

He made the most of retirement, making up for the busy years by spending time with Sally, enjoying Ogunquit Beach, and golfing at the Cape Neddick Country Club where they were longtime members. In the winters they enjoyed yearly road trips south, stopping to visit friends and family on their way to Isle of Palms, South Carolina.

Randy was a fabulous cook, who spent time perfecting his recipes and trying them out on Sally and his grandkids, with RB’s famous BBQ ribs and homemade pizza being two of the big hits. He kept an herb garden by the back door and a sharp knife at the ready.

Randy had 3 grandsons, Indie, Aidan, and Reid, and a granddaughter, Lucinda, who all grew up nearby spending many hours at their grandparents’ house. He was as loving and proud a grandfather as he was as a father.

Randy is survived by his wife Sally, son Dave and wife Laura (Breen) Brogan of Cape Neddick, son Jeff and wife Anne (Neveu) Brogan of Wells, and grandchildren Indie, Aidan, Lucinda, and Reid. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and cherished lifelong friends.
