July 1, 1931 ~ October 7, 2020 (age 89)


Robert "Bob" Lee Broverman, 89, of Shelbyville, passed away on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 after a long illness.  He was a resident of the Shelbyville Manor, for several years, where he received excellent and loving care.  

Bob was born in Pana, IL, the son of Harry and Elizabeth Broverman.  He leaves his sister, Ada Jean Metzger and several nieces and nephews.  

Bob never knew a stranger during his lifetime, which included working as an Attorney, State’s Attorney, and Judge.  He also served as the Democratic Party Chairman for many years, where he helped many people along the way.  He was always known to give generously to many causes, too many to list.  He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
