Mark Roderick Obituary

Mark Edward Roderick, 56 of West Bridgewater passed away unexpectedly on October 30th, 2023.

He was born in Brockton Massachusetts on June 18th, 1967 to the late Karen Roderick (of Bridgewater) and the late Fred Roderick (of Bridgewater). Mark is survived by his two children, Steven Roderick of Middleboro and Heather Camara (Roderick) of Mattapoisett and his granddaughter. He was the brother of James Roderick, Alan Roderick, Jason Roderick and Brian Roderick and had 12 nieces and nephews.

Mark Spent most of his working life as a truck driver and mechanic, it was something he always had an interest in from young childhood and carried it with him his entire life. In his younger years he built many hot rods, muscle cars and motorcycles with the aspiration to always go fast and have fun, he enjoyed off-roading, riding dirt bikes, bombing trails and climbing sandpit hills.

He also had a passion for music both playing and listening, riding and working on his Harley, spending time fishing with his granddaughter and being in the woods, but his greatest passion and love was his kids. Never one to be a fan of cold weather, spring and summer were his favorite seasons and when you’d see him the happiest. He often enjoyed back yard fires, grilling, and spending time with friends and family, but also enjoying a quiet night in watching one of his favorite television programs, movies, or sitting quietly with his guitar. Mark was also well known for his sense of humor, hardly ever letting a moment for a good joke or prank go by, he often made light of situations and brought a smile in times of sadness or quarrel.

His son Steven, having a lot of the same interests in common with him, would scarcely run out of things to talk about or do with his dad but the largest bond they shared was music.

    ~ A word from Steven: From as early as I can remember no matter what we were doing the tunes would be going whether we were in the house listening or jamming, in the garage or in the car. As I got older and became infatuated with it more and more, I became a musician myself. That bond we shared just got deeper. I would always get so excited to show my dad a new song, riff or lick I learned and he would always be as psyched as I was. He was always encouraging me to keep getting better, everytime I pick up my guitar I will forever remember my dad.

His daughter Heather shared Mark's love for the outdoors, animals and history. They spent many times together in deep conversations about life or about the things that meant the most to them.

    ~ A word from Heather: Every happy memory I have with my Dad has something to do with the woods, an almost tipping canoe while fishing, backyard Bonfires with his acoustic in hand, his insatiable laugh, binge watching movies  or discussing some period in history. He would be there to listen whenever I needed him and I could count on him to love me without conditions. In typical Mark Roderick fashion, he was hysterical and lit up a room when he walked in. His love for music is something I will always remember, he often told me I had a “sharp ear” and the sound of an acoustic will always be one of my favorite sounds. I will always love and miss the man that he was.

He had an incredible bond with his granddaughter, they would both light up when they saw each other and enjoy playing, fishing, going on adventures in the woods or watching movies together. His love and care for her was something I know she will cherish. And I know she will never forget being able to catch her first fish with papa by her side.
