Alfred "Fred" Broberg

July 2, 1939 — May 12, 2019


Alfred “Fred” George Broberg, 79, passed away at his home in Chadron, Nebraska on Sunday, May 12, 2019.  He was born to George and Cynthia Broberg on July 2, 1939 in Chadron, Nebraska.  He was a lifelong resident of Chadron.  At the age of 4, he and his three brothers were adopted by Mary and Simon Letcher.  In 1963, he married Darlene Brewster.  From this union Rick and Bonnie were born.  In 1982, he married Karen Gray and they had Tara.

For many years he was a delivery person in the Chadron area.  He delivered milk, Coca-Cola and bread.  Later he started his own construction company which he continued to do for many years.

He had a big heart and was always willing to help others out.  He loved to take his family boating, camping, and on motorcycle rides.  Playing guitar and singing were very important to him.  One of the most special memories the family has of him is watching Nebraska Cornhusker football games.  When him and his brother would get together watching a game, they would all yell at the TV in typical Cornhusker football fan style.  Go, go, go.  A tradition that continues within the family.

Fred is preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Theodore, Robert, and Delbert Broberg and grandson Aaron Almeida.

He is survived by his children Rick Broberg of Chadron, Bonnie Almeida (Steve) of Rapid City, SD, and Tara Broberg (Marcus Bordeaux) of Chadron; half-sisters Vicky and Shannon of Grand Junction, CO; sister-in-law Trish Broberg-Davy, of Montana; nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

A memorial has been established for the American Lung Association.  Donations may be sent to Chamberlain Chapel, PO Box 970, Chadron, NE  69337.
