  1. Doug was a fine CBA colleague and friend, always of generous of spirit, reliability, and trustworthiness. So excellent to see his Family arrange such a fine funeral. Vale Doug.

  2. You did him proud today…..Doug and Lorraine lovely people and a lovely couple. Wishing you all strength and unity. Xx

  3. Broadleys,

    What a fantastic service for a fantastic man.

    You have all done your parents/in laws proud with honouring their lives with such dignity and thoughtfulness.
    Wish we could have been there with you for Mr Broadley like we were for Mrs Broadley but in some ways I now feel we were.

    All our best wishes

  4. Thank you for this opportunity to share our life filling memories and meaningful relationship that Doug always provided whenever we were in his presence. A beautiful soul journey playing out, and a wonderful tribute to an exceptionally decent human being. Kind and loving wishes to all his family and friends.

  5. Farewell Doug, It has been an honour to know such a fine man. We miss you.

    A ship sails and I stand
    watching till she fades on
    the horizon and someone at my
    side says, “she is gone.”
    Gone where? Gone from my sight,
    that is all; she is just as large as
    when I saw her. The diminished
    size, and total loss of sight is in me,
    not in her, and just at the moment
    when someone at my side says
    “She is gone” there are others who
    are watching her coming, and
    other voices take up a glad shout,
    “There she comes!”

    1. Many happy memories of Doug and Lorraine from CBA days, Spring Valley golf and Chisholm Probus. My heartfelt thoughts to the family , Doug will be missed.. A wonderful tribute to him.

  6. Grant, Stuart, Joanne and families.

    Our sincere condolences. What a lovely service for a Doug who was a real gentleman.

  7. We were glad to know Doug and Lorraine through our membership of Chisholm Probus Club.

    We will always have happy memories of Doug – a very pleasant person and a true gentleman. We greatly enjoyed the walks he conducted over many years for the club.

    It was a lovely service today and a very appropriate tribute to Doug.

    With kind regards to the Broadley family,
    Glenice and Ken

  8. A true gentleman, always greeted you with a smile and a helping hand. Such fond memories of both Doug and Lorraine from LPTC, and a few get togethers in Qld when our holidays coincided. My sincere condolences to the family who have lost such a beautiful person.

  10. Thank you Grant, Stuart & Jo for giving me the opportunity to share in your farewell to your beloved Dad. Hearing your stories and seeing the photos brought back lots of lovely memories for me also. One little story came to mind as I watched the photos. When Eric knew he was to have a new room mate, his comment to Aunty Jean was “I hope he’s tidy!” Turned out, his new room mate was just as tidy, if not more so, than Eric was!! Lovely memories of our good times together.
    Blessings and love to you all

  11. John and I have just watched the most moving Service to celebrate Doug’s life. We are in absolute awe at how well the Service included family and friends who were unable to attend and put an arm around your shoulders. Grant, Stuart and Jo, your words and memories of Dad were both so warm and also very informative. Mel and Lisa, beautiful words. So well done.
    I remember Doug as being polite, fun loving, helpful, stoic (yes Grant!), appreciative and enjoying a good laugh. It was an absolute pleasure to be in Doug’s company. Their was always a smile on his face. We had some fabulous times down at McCrae, memories that will stay with us forever.
    We will miss Doug so much, but feel peaceful knowing he is now with my beloved sister Lorraine, which as he said towards the end of his days, is where he wants to be. Together again at last.
    John says the character of the man shines through to the character of his children.
    Our love to all the Broadley family,
    Love Bev and John

  12. A beautiful send off to a true gentleman, forever in our hearts. Now reunited with Lorraine.

  24. Grant, Stuart and Jo. What a privilege it was to share in your tribute to your father. Your words were all so true of the man we first met in 1977 when you moved into No 62 and we were up the road in No 63. Friendship started then and continued from then until now. We will remember both your parents with love and gratitude for all the good times (and sometimes not so good) we were fortunate enough to spend together.

    A lovely, gentle man who was alway ready for a cheerful chat. I really loved the opportunity to catch up with Doug and always found our conversations meaningful, thoughtful and intelligent. He will be so dearly missed, yet I am blessed to know he has found peace.

  44. Grant, Stuart, Joanne,

    Our sincere condolences. We imagine the recent weeks and months have been difficult.

    For more than forty years we were blessed to have such wonderful next-door neighbours. Our family was truly saddened to hear of Doug’s passing. We will miss the chats over the fence, the chance meetings at the letterbox and the many brief encounters at our front door as Doug was once again taking a collection for another worthy charity. Doug, our neighbour, will not be forgotten by us. The local neighborhood will also not be the same without him.

    In sympathy,
    Geoff, Marlene, Brad and Fiona
    (The Barns family)
