Michael Hugh Dymoke Broad
Michael Hugh Dymoke Broad of Winchester died peacefully in hospital on Sun., Jan. 20, 2008. He was 77.
He was predeceased by parents Colonel Robert Norman Dymoke Broad and Katharine Monica Pulford of England. He was the husband of the late Wendy (Gammon), and the loving husband of Irene Woolford. He is survived by his three children Peter (Julie), Georgina (Peter Ellis), and James. He was the cherished grandfather of Rebecca and Charlotte Broad. He was the uncle of Valerie Woolford and family.
Michael’s schooling carried him through Wellington College, Sandhurst, and Cranwell Military Colleges to a career with the Royal Air Force Regiment. This took him to many postings in the U.K., as well as Singapore, and Cypress. His fields of service were in fuels, explosives, and ordinance. He was particularly proud of the time spent in Nepal for a relief mission to fly rice into small villages in the mountains. His responsibilities were to establish an air field. This operation was called “Khana Cascade” in 1973.
Always a gentleman, he never spoke ill of anyone, and was always willing to see the other side of the argument.
Michael’s charm, kindness, and gentle spirit will be sadly missed and never forgotten.
The funeral service will be held at St. Matthias Anglican Church in Winchester on Mon., Jan. 28 at 2 pm. Refreshments will follow.
Donations to RCAF Memorial Association or Winchester District Memorial Hospital would be appreciated.
The arrangements are entrusted to Byers Funeral Home in South Mountain, 613-989-3836.
