Obituary for ALEXANDER BROOME

Alexander "Sonny" Broome was born on November 6, 1931 in Dowell, MD to the late Leonard and Martha Broome. He met and married his late bride of (57) years, Marguerite Broome, on July 4, 1951. Sonny and Marguerite remained in Dowell, MD to raise their family.Sonny received his education in the Calvert County School system. After a brief military career, Sonny pursued a career as a Waterman, working at the Shipyard and Oyster House in Solomon's, MD. Afterwards, he began a (22) year long career in the General Maintenance field at Patuxent River Navy Base where he retired. Sonny was not one for sitting around the house, so after retirement, he kept himself busy by going back to work; doing some HVAC work with his son, bagging groceries at Woodburn's, and doing some work for local builder, Bob Davis.As a member of St. John's United Methodist Church, he was a devoted member of the board of trustees, sang on the men's choir, and helped open the St. John's Youth Center.Sonny was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and godfather who committed his entire life to loving and providing for his children, Keith and Adriene Broome. He loved spending time with his family and friends. He devoted much of his time to help raise many children other than his own. Sonny had an old school charm that made him a joy to be around. He loved fishing and crabbing. In the spring and summer months, he would spend hours on the water in the company of his wife, family and friends.His faith in God and strong will allowed him to depart this life peacefully on March 1, 2011 with his son at his side. His final days were spend surrounded by family and friends who he had bonded with throughout his very memorable life. Sonny was loved by many and will truly be missed.Sonny leaves to cherish his fond memory, his two children, Keith (Consuella) and Adriene Broome; one brother, Asia Broome,, who would pick him up almost every day to run errands; four grandchildren, Bernarda (Brandy) and Demond (Flordelyn) Henson, Lakeisha Broome and Kymberly Broome-Jones; four great-granddaughters, Victoria, Kimora, Jada, and Amaya Henson; five special nephews, Clarence Broome, Vincent and Terry Johnson and Redmond and Bobby Janey who were like sons and often stopped by to visit him; long time friends, Clarence and Cozette Washington, Vincent and Constance Johnson; and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by four sisters, Francis, Elsie, Edna, and Annie; one brother, Calvin (Tic).
