Bruce Broman, of Snow Hill, passed peacefully on April 23, 2018.

He leaves his wife, Lillian, and cherished daughters, Jennifer Broman of Annapolis, Maryland and Chamblis Broman of Vallejo, California.

His beloved son, Louis Broman, of Manhattan, New York, passed away in 1995.

He is survived by two sisters, Beverly Mitchell and Evelyn Terry who reside in Modesto, California. A third sister, Jeanne Henry-Griffin of San Francisco, preceded him in death in 2010.

His devoted family includes David and Carol Wilkinson of Blackstone, Virginia and James and Missy Weaver and their children, Kaitlyn and Allison of Sunderland, Maryland, and Scott and Nina Foy of Huntingtown, Maryland.

Bruce was a World War II Navy veteran who served in the South Pacific. He lived and worked in the Bethesda area as a psychotherapist until relocating to the Eastern Shore where he was director of Mental Health at the Worcester County Health Department.

He was also past director of Mental Health Disaster Services at the Lower Shore Red Cross and served on the board and was past president of the Mental Health Association of the Lower Shore.

After his devotion to his family and work, Bruce enjoyed a love of sailing and sailed throughout the Chesapeake Bay area. He enjoyed and embraced the life and dear residents of Smith Island, Maryland where he and the family enjoyed an island home.

He was a past member of the Annapolis and Somers Cove Yacht Clubs and held dear friendships with other boaters.

Bruce will be sorely missed by his friends, family and all those he knew for being a loving, caring man who celebrated life and was devoted to helping others realize that same enjoyment.

A private funeral is planned for July. In lieu of flowers, please send memorial donations to the Mental Health Association of MD, the Ewell Maryland Fire Department or the Worcester County Adult Medical Day Care.

A gathering of family and friends will be held Friday, May 4, 2018 at 4 p.m. at the family residence.
