Obituary of Allan Bruce Brogden
BROGDEN, Allan Bruce “Big Al” – It is with sadness, but with comfort and endless fond memories that the family of Al Brogden announces that he passed away at Bluewater Health on Thursday, March 24, 2022 at the age of 80. He was the beloved husband of Lynne (Lichty), dear father of Anastacia, Stephanie, A.J. and Sam, “GrandAl” to Keagan and Lunden, and brother to Bruce and Edward. Al was an international consulting electrical engineer and the founder of A.B. Brogden Ltd. He was also an elected trustee of the Lambton County Board of Education and alderman for the City of Sarnia. Al and friends were instrumental in bringing the Sarnia Sting to town and he was often seen wearing his “Big Al” Sting jersey. Al was an avid skier and golfer, he glided around moguls effortlessly and swung a club with great enthusiasm. He enjoyed flying his Mooney, doing puzzle books, cooking and experimenting with food. Al also enjoyed traveling: a couple of backpacks in the Corvette, he would ask Lynne, “left or right?” At one point they ended up in New Orleans and another, Peggy’s Cove. He loved being on the water and spending time with his family. Al will be sincerely missed. A celebration of life will be held at the Sarnia Riding Club, 980 Riding Club Lane on Monday, August 8, 2022 from 6-8 p.m. Dress is snappy casual. To honour Al, the family asks that you put on a great hat, a snappy outfit and dance.
