Grandy- Robert Broome 70, died at home after a valiant battle with illness Tuesday November 25, 2008. Born in Charlotte, North Carolina December 1, 1937 to the late Marvin and Mable Broome, Robert served his country honorably as a United States Army paratrooper in the 1950’s.

Always active and willing to help others, Robert held the office of President of the Virginia Plumbing Mechanical Inspection Association (VPMIA) and was also a past president of the Virginia Cross Connection Association. After retiring to North Carolina with his wife, Robert joined the American Legion Post 288 Coinjock, and enjoyed spending time with his fellow legionaires.
