Derrick Hamilton Broome

Derrick Hamilton Broome, son of James and Ethel Broome, was born on January 6, 1965 in Brooklyn, New York. Having attended elementary school in New York and high school at Deerfield Academy (MA), Derrick was a proud graduate of Ohio Dominican University in Columbus, Ohio. Derrick had a long career in the field of logistics, and a very successful stint at Pacer International prior to becoming a Board Member at the Intermodal Association of North America from 2016 – 2021. He then became the Vice-President of the Intermodal Division at C.A.T. Global where it is said that he inspired those around him and left a lasting impression on their corporate culture.

Derrick made and maintained lifelong friendships which filled his life with a brotherhood that was vitally important to him and lasted from as early as middle school. Anyone who saw Derrick knew that they would also likely see: Rick, Ron, Eric, Angelo, Vincent, Glen, Andy, Mohan, Phil, Mark or Ramesh. He frequently would travel with Ramesh to see his family. He also developed great relationships with friends met during his work experience including John Patterson.

Derrick, married the love of his life, Leanna Fullard, on November 7, 2022 in Negril, Jamaica, who coincidentally, he had known since his childhood as his mother was her teacher for 5th and 6th grade! Though their time together was short, it was filled with love, laughter, travel and precious memories.

Derrick leaves to cherish their memories his loving wife, Leanna (Fullard) Broome; step-daughter, Adria (David) Bernardez; grandchildren, Malachi Boyd, Aden Bernardez, and Amari Bernardez; mother, Ethel L. Broome; aunts, Josephine Scott, Diana Scott and Patricia Brown; sisters-in-law, Jacqueline Johnson and Theresa Myrick; and a host of relatives, co-workers and friends.
