Mr. Richard Broxton Obituary

Richard Earl Broxton, a man of grace, was born in 1959 in Graceville's embrace. A friendly soul, gentle and kind, he left an indelible mark and memories behind. On April 21, 2023, he bid adieu, but his loving spirit continues in the hearts of those he knew.

Raised by Gussie and Charlie with love and care, Richard's childhood in Graceville was beyond compare. As the years rolled by, his parents took their heavenly flight, leaving Richard to shine their legacy bright. The town of Graceville, where his life's journey began, was also where it ended, as per God's plan.

Richard's love and kindness knew no bounds, his gentleness echoed in all life's sounds. His sister Callie, his caregiver and guide, stood by his side, their bond could never divide. Martha Lawson of East Orange, NJ, and Nettie Godfrey of Columbus, GA, remember their brother's loving ways. Charles Broxton of Atlantic City, NJ, cherishes the brotherly bond they held so tightly.

Numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and relatives, all bear witness to the love Richard gives. His life was a testament to love and joy, his spirit, a beacon that death could not destroy. To know Richard was to experience a love so pure, a memory that will forever endure.

As we gather to remember Richard's life, let's recall him not in sorrow but in strife. His life was a melody, a song so sweet, his love, a rhythm that made our hearts beat. In the words of poet Emily Dickinson, "Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality," Richard's love ensures his eternity.

In the heart of Graceville, Richard's legacy remains, his life's sweet symphony plays in its lanes. We remember Richard, not with tears or sorrow, but with love and joy, as we face the morrow. His laughter, his kindness, his gentle embrace, are etched in our hearts, never to erase.

Richard Earl Broxton, a man so divine, lived a life that truly did shine. As we bid farewell, let's remember him so, a man of love, whose spirit continues to glow. His journey on earth may have reached its end, but in our hearts, he will forever be our friend.
