Obituary from the Shreveport Times newspaper, June 20, 2005, Monday, p. 3-B:
SHREVEPORT, LA – Henry A. DeBroeck, Sr., 88, passed away at Spring Lake Guest Care Center on Friday, June 17, 2005. A memorial mass will be held on Tuesday, June 21, 2005 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church. Father James McLelland will officiate. There will be no visitation.
Mr. DeBroeck was born in St. Louis, Missouri on April 1, 1917, but was a resident of Shreveport for 85 years. He was a member of St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church. He was a decorated veteran of World War II and was a proud member and past commander of the American Legion Cedar Grove Post #6. He retired from Arkansas Louisiana Gas Company in 1977 after 38 years of employment.
Mr. DeBroeck was preceded in death by his wife, Faye Watts DeBroeck; brothers, Raymond Joseph, John Harold, and Julius; and sister, Maria. He is survived by his son, Henry A. DeBroeck, Jr. and wife, Patti of Shreveport; his daughter, Rebecca DeBroeck Appling, and husband, Eddie of Lexington, South Carolina; two brothers, Hubert and Paul of Shreveport; one sister-in-law, Margie Watts Green of Hendersonville, North Carolina; three grandchildren, five step-grandchildren; three step-great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the doctors of the Veterans Hospital and the loving and dedicated care of the Home Health staff of the Veterans Hospital, especially Laura, Pam, Yvonne, and Betty, for the many years of care they provided. They would also like to express their appreciation to the loving and compassionate staff of Spring Lake Guest Care Center who provided gentle care at the end of his long and full life.
He lived what he believed, he always chose to see the sunny side, he never met a stranger, and if he could do anything to help you he would. He loved his family and friends and he will surely be missed. Our comfort comes in the fact that we know he is at peace and gone to a far better place!
