He was preceded in death by his wife Catherine Yonge Broadus. He is survived by sons Mark (Shannon) of Saint Augustine, FL; Barry (Gina) of Lexington, KY; and Philip (Lisa) of Tempe, AZ and three grandchildren Christian, James, and Bailey. He is also survived by one brother Andy Broadus (Linda) of Arlington, TX, and a number of nephews and other extended family.
