Junior was a hard-working man all his life and taught his boys to work hard and respect others, especially their elders. He was a member of the Robeline Masonic Lodge No. 344 since 1978. Junior loved to hunt and fish, and loved the friends he made over the years doing just that. He was a founding member of the Northwest Louisiana Fox Hunters Association. All his grandchildren were his pride and joy and he loved his entire family very much and was proud of them. He taught his boys how to shoot straight. Mr. Broadway had a very fulfilling life and he did it his way!
He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Those honored to serve as pallbearers will be his sons, Stanley, Garland, Terry, Rickey, Randy, Rodney and Gary.
