Nelson Broce Jr.

Obituary of Nelson O Broce Jr.

Please share a memory of Nelson to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Nelson O. Broce Jr. died June 30th after a long battle with cancer. Nel had a strong faith in God, and we are certain that he is now with his Lord and Savior. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 39 years Diane Schneider, his sister Claire Cullinane, his son Bradford Broce, and his grandson Finnian Broce. Nel was born in 1948 and raised in Weymouth, Massachusetts. While in New England, he had careers in both marketing and corporate training for Aetna Life & Casualty, and later as a home inspector in Phoenix. After retirement, he kept himself busy by working as a park ranger. Nel made friends everywhere he went. He often referred to himself as "the bald guy," but he was so much more than that: he was a loving husband and father, a hard worker, a loyal friend, and an incorrigible joker. To relax, Nel enjoyed camping and motorcycling, as well as spending time at his family's lake house in Maine, which he helped build when he was ten years old. Nel was also quite proud of his collection of beer glasses, which numbered over a thousand at the time of his passing. Services will be held at 11AM on Saturday, July 8th at Christ Chapel Presbyterian Church at 3450 Chemehuevi Blvd, Lake Havasu City, Arizona. A memorial service will also be held in Acton, Maine at a date to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Christ Chapel Presbyterian Church. Services were entrusted to the care of Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home. Thoughts and condolences can be sent to the family at
