Obituary for ASIA MCKINLEY BROOME

Asia McKinley Broome, 82, better known as "Acey" or "Tater", was granted his angel wings on March 8, 2016 at 8:10pm at University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore, MD, surrounded by family. Even during his illness, Asia demonstrated a positive attitude and strong faith in God.

Asia was born on February 11, 1934 in Dowell, MD to the late Leonard and Martha Broome. He received his education in the Calvert County Public School system.

He met and fell in love with his wife Dorothy Althea Gross; they were married on March 22, 1958. They celebrated 47 years together until she was called home to be with her Father to watch over her family from heaven.

As a man of many abilities and strengths, he served in the U.S. Navy for 4 years and then worked at the Naval Yard in Washington, D.C. until his retirement in 1993. He was a man who worked many jobs and always staying busy. He had a special place in his heart for Benny Porter, whom he worked for the last 15 years.

Asia was a loving and caring man to whomever he came in contact with. You could always catch him at 7-eleven in the morning for his coffee and donuts or in the evenings on Solomons Island by the water. He enjoyed fishing, playing cards, playing the lottery, watching Family Feud, and definitely can't forget about wrestling.

Asia was preceded in death by his five sisters, Francis, Elsie, Edna, Delores, and Annie; two brothers, Calvin (Tic), and Alexander (Sonny).

He leaves to cherish his precious memory his six sons, Jerome (Shelley), Thomas (Leslie), Asia "Mark", Leonard, Ralph (Rose), Scott (Janice); one daughter; and 18 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; and a special friend Emily Gantt and the Gantt family.

He also leaves two God-children: Zelda Gantt and Samantha Taylor; and a special niece Corledia (Sissy) Broome; and a host of other relatives and friends.
