Ivan Carl Bromley

Ivan Carl Bromley, 84, passed away at his home in Lowell, AR, on August 14, 2018. He was born November 4, 1933, to Walter and Maude Alice Bromley. After having spent 39 years as chief technician with the local cable company in Fayetteville, he retired and moved to Lowell. There he spent his time gardening, stargazing, attending weekly auctions and of course, tinkering in his workshop. Following a stroke in 2009, he spent his time reading a variety of books and magazines and watching the History and Discovery Channels. Watching car auctions, game shows and westerns were among other favorite activities. Prior to Ivan’s stroke, he and Thelma were faithful attendees of West Ridge Freewill Baptist Church in Fayetteville.

          He is preceded in death by his parents; daughter, Laressa Jean Bromley; two brothers, Wesley and David Bromley; one sister, Linda Shepherd; and a great granddaughter, Cally Gilleland.

          He will be remembered by his wife of 35 years, Thelma Bromley; son, Carl Bromley and wife, Linda, of Lowell, AR; son, Steve Bromley of Glenpool, OK; daughter, Marsha Freeman and husband Aubrey of Houghton, MI; daughter, Alesha Gilleland of Dallas, TX; and bonus daughters, Tamara Gilbert and husband, David, of Lowell, AR; Kim Buck and husband, Jim, of Springdale, AR; Michelle Brewer and husband, Tracy, of Fayetteville, AR; 20 grandchildren; and 15 great grandchildren.

The family will receive visitors at Backstrom-Pyeatte Funeral Home in Springdale on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 9:00 am. Funeral service will follow at 10:00am, officiated by Rev. Loyd Thomas.  Interment will be at the Bluff Cemetery immediately following the service.  Pallbearers will be Jason Bromley, Aubrey Freeman III, Peter Freeman, Adam Sjogern, Mathew Gilleland and Nathan Gilbert.
