Celebrating the homegoing of Larry D. Broger, age 66, who transitioned Friday July 18, 2020 at the University of Chicago Medical Center in Chicago, IL. He was born on November 15, 1953 in Drew, MS to Fred and Alberta Broger. He attended Drew Mississippi High School and later relocated to Chicago. Always gainfully employed, dedicated 15 years to Norfolk & Western Railway and nearly 25 years at Ellis Corporation before early retirement. He was married on October 19, 1986 in Chicago to Lizzie Robinson.

Never one to bite his tongue - Larry will be remembered for his candid statements and kind ways. He was a loving and devoted father, who gave without a second thought. No one can match his ability to forgive, his tough love, or passion for the Bears (win or lose). His favorite leisure time involved sitting on his comfy couch Sunday afternoons to watch football. Larry will be deeply missed, always in our hearts, and never forgotten by all who loved him.

Larry leaves behind his wife Lizzie, nine children: Maine (Jautaunne’), Chiquita, Stephanie, Cornelius, Sade’ (Argyle), Jakeith, Judteria, Deona (RaShaud), and step-son Deon; fourteen grandchildren Jashawana, Dondre, Tamijay, Temijah, Kezariah, Terrence, Taylor, Alilyana, Keyshawn, Jadon, Gabriel, Jedidiah, Alanna, and Azariah; four great grandchildren Kaylee, Kylie, Dondre Jr., and Jaydon; Special friend, Reggie; Siblings: Lee Henderson - Chicago, IL, Johnny Broger (Elspra) - Elgin, IL, Joseph Broger - Jackson, MS., Othell Broger (Brenda) Crawfordville, Fl., Ronnie Broger-Irving, TX., Lonnie Broger (Pamela) - Yahoo, MS., and sisters Connie Miller (Glen) Elgin, IL., Katie Woods, Killeen, TX. , Clara Freeman, IN., and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
