Frank Donald Broers

9/17/43 – 8/17/17

 

Frank Donald Broers passed away Thursday, August 17, 2017, in Spokane, Washington, following an extended illness. He left behind family and friends who will miss his dry wit, unique storytelling style and a gruff exterior that everyone knew was just a disguise.

In his school days Frank was a football player, trumpet player and gymnast. His lifelong interests were based in the great outdoors. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, volunteer fireman and, later on, a gold prospector; over the years, countless memories were made snowmobiling, boating and cutting firewood. As a young man Frank did some motorcycle racing and later immersed himself in passing along his love of this sport to his son.

Frank made his living over the years as a truck driver, heavy equipment operator and mechanic. He was preceded in death by his parents, Mabel (Shaw) Broers and Frank Morris Broers; and by his wife, Charlotte (Neindam) Broers. He is survived by his children: daughter, Janet (Jim) Van Gundy, daughter, Christy Underwood, and son, Damon (Kimberly) Broers; and grandchildren: Jennifer (Brett) Igbinoba, Robin (Brendan) McGree, Steven Hines and Kassie Broers.

A gathering will be held at 2 p.m., at the Coulee Dam Town Hall on Sunday, October 1, to share stories and memories and celebrate the life of Frank. Please join us.
