A very casual service will be held Saturday, October 24th at 12:00 outside at the bridge near the lake at Long Leaf Hills Park (the former Hugh MacRae Park). Even though the service is outside, the family does request masks be worn and a proper distance between families be respected. Family will have the opportunity to get together after the Memorial, directions to follow separately.
The family has requested that no flowers be sent, but anyone who wishes may contribute to an Educational Memorial Fund being set up in his name for his daughter, Lily. The GoFundMe site information is: https://www.gofundme.com/f/alex-broadfoot-education-fund-for-lily-b/share.
