Michael Broady

April 9, 1955 — October 23, 2022

Michael E. Broady, formerly of Louisville, Kentucky was born April 9, 1955, to Marcellus Broady, Sr., and Berniedean Scott Broady. He passed away peacefully at his home in Earlington, Kentucky on Sunday, October 23, 2022.

He was a member of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church. He loved his pastor and the member of the church and there was never a time when he did not feel the love returned. He always felt at home when he was in the presence of his church family.

Michael graduated from Earlington High School in June 1973 and Kentucky State University in May 1977 with his bachelor’s degree.

He was formerly employed in Louisville, Kentucky as an insurance adjuster for Farm Bureau Insurance Company for over twenty (20) years and goes down in history as being one of the first black employees that they hired. Later, he went to work for Jefferson County Public School System (JCPSS) as a bus driver.

Michael was a die-hard University of Louisville Cardinals and was a proud season ticket holder for the team. Win or lose he remained their biggest supporter. He also was an avid listener of Louisville’s Black Radio station “WLOU”. Michael lived in Louisville for most of his career and it was during this time that he developed a deep love for the city.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Marcellus Broady, Jr., and sister Shirley Broady Watson.

He leaves to cherish his memories two sisters: Joanna Moore of Fayetteville, NC and Barbara J. Johnson of Madisonville, KY; brothers: Darrell W. Broady of Earlington, KY and Leroy (Bettie) Broady of Hopkinsville, KY; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.
