Life Reflections

Funeral services for Mr. James A. Bromley of Remo, Virginia were held Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 1 p.m. at the Mount Olive Baptist Church in Heathsville with Reverend Dale Bunns of the Sharon Baptist Church in Weems, Virginia Officiating.

James Auther Bromley, affectionately known as “Doc” or “Babe” to family and friends, was born on September 17, 1953 to the late James and Mildred Bromley.

“Doc” attended the public schools of Northumberland County. At an early age he was baptized at the Mount Olive Baptist Church in Heathsville, Virginia.

Throughout the years, Doc worked as a landscaper and waterman until he joined the Army as a young adult.

Doc was a loving, friendly, and charming person. He loved to laugh, stay on the go, and talk (stuff) to everyone who knew him. If you asked Doc either you were his cousin or a dear friend. If you asked others, he was so well known, that he was like the "Mayor of Wicomico Church." He enjoyed eating, spending time outside, dancing, and sharing time with loved ones.

On Tuesday, November 6, 2012 in his family home, Doc’s Heavenly Father called him home. He was preceded in death by his mother and father and granddaughter, Kemiyah Mitchell.

He leaves to cherish his memory: life partner, Carolyn Mitchell; two children: Andrew Mitchell and LaKesha (Tron) Barrett; grandchildren: Nyasiah Carter, Kemijion Mitchell, Aleese Mitchell and Jada Barrett; siblings: Lewis (Bessie) Bromley; Jacqueline Short and Steven (Darlene) Bromley; aunts: Emma Jones, Rose Jones, Emmaline Johnson, and Fannie Mae Kennedy; an honorary aunt, Edith Mae Mitchell; uncles: Elvin Smith and Carol (Walice) Smith; an especially close relationship with the Betts Family and a host of loving nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Interment services were held at the church cemetery (old site) with friends and family serving as the pall bearers and friends, nieces and cousins served as floral bearers.
