C. STUART BROAD "Stu"  
Charles Stuart "Stu" Broad, resident of Westminster Village in Bloomington, IL, passed away on Saturday, March 23, 2013, peacefully, with family by his side.  His memorial service will be at 2 p.m., May 11 in Bloomington, IL.  He was an attorney and devoted husband and father. Stu was born Sept. 24, 1927, in Lincoln, NE, to Elizabeth G. Broad and Robert A. Broad. He met Mary Lavery, later his wife of 61 years, as a student at the University of MN. Stu and Mary graduated, married, and lived in Washington, DC and Chicago, settling in Chevy Chase, MD. Stu earned a bachelor of laws at G.W. University while on the Capitol Hill Police Force. He started his career in trial law, and later specialized in industrial and labor relations law. He participated in early civil rights sit-ins for desegregation. He worked for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Department of Defense, Atomic Energy Commission and Department of Energy, and initiated a legal guidance program for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Stu valued education, self-initiative and friendship, and shared his love of outdoor sports, bird- and whale-watching, American history, and music. Stu was the proud husband of Mary, the proud father of Dick, Cathy, Tom, Martha and Bob, and the proud grandfather of four.  In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (www.NAMI.org), Misericordia (www.Misericordia.com) or a charity of the donor's choice.

I was sorry to hear that Stuart passed away. I am a long-time friend of Cathy's and came to Cathy's home in Chevy Chase for some holiday dinners or just to visit. Stuart was always warm and welcoming, asking me lots of friendly questions about my job and interests, and life in general. He was laidback and easygoing; he made my visits relaxing and pleasant. I am glad I had a chance to meet Stuart and get to know him some. I have fond memories of my visits to Cathy's home, to which he contributed.

I met Stu at a MCSM meeting in 1998. He was a kind and thoughtful "old-school" gentleman and I'll remember him fondly for that and his good common sense.
