As a life-long resident of Marion County, Clifton was a very outgoing person that loved visiting with his family and friends. He enjoyed making trips to the mountains. Many can attest to the great deal of time he spent keeping up with and researching his family's genealogy. The family credits him with helping to write "The Broom Family Book." Clifton served our nation faithfully in the United States Army and Air Force, and he was a World War II Veteran.

Mr. Broom was preceded in death by his Father, Manton Broom; his Mother, Frances Pace Broom Necaise; two Brothers, Ezell Broom, Redus Broom; and one Sister, Carrie Bell Bass.

He is survived by two Brothers, Lloyd Broom (Charlsie), of Columbia, John Broom (Jean), of Columbia; and many other family and friends.

Pallbearers will be Wesley Bass, Jeff Broom, Eddy Broom, Drew Broom, Jason Stringer, and Steven Stringer. Honorary Pallbearers will be Jerry Broom, Chris Broom, Tim Broom, and Luke Sanders.
