Alan Charles Bromley

September 18, 1951 - August 05, 2018

Holden Alan Charles Bromley passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, August 5, 2018, at his home in Holden, Maine. Alan was born September 18, 1951, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Adele and Irwin Bromley of Jupiter, Florida.
He attended school in Queens, New York, and Stamford, Connecticut, then graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He married Cynthia Dore-Bromley of Cranston, Rhode Island, and they lived in Trumbull, Connecticut, before settling in Holden, Maine, and raising children.
For the last 38 years, Alan worked at WBRC Architects & Engineers in Bangor, Maine -- most recently as Principal, Chief Financial Officer, and Structural Engineer. Alan served on boards for the town of Holden and the Bangor Symphony Orchestra. He was a proud member of Mensa.
Alan took great pleasure in his work, listening to classical music, watching sports, walking in nature, exploring Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island, and all aspects of Thanksgiving. He was wise, practical, honest, loyal, resilient, and had a dry -- but undeniable -- sense of humor. More than anything, he deeply loved his family.
In addition to his parents and wife, Alan is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Adam and Alexandra Bromley of Boston; his son, David Bromley of Juneau, Alaska; his daughter and son-in-law, Alison Bromley and Steve Siviski of Cumberland, Maine; his brother, Hank Bromley and Hank's wife, Susan Jenkins, of Savannah, Georgia; and his beloved cat, Cappuccino. He was predeceased by his brother, Michael Bromley of Stamford, Connecticut.
A memorial gathering will be held at the Bangor Arts Exchange at 193 Exchange Street in Bangor, Maine on Monday, August 13, from 5 to 7 p.m. Those who wish to remember Alan in a special way may make gifts in his memory to Friends of Acadia or Bangor Symphony Orchestra. Donations to Friends of Acadia can be mailed to 43 Cottage Street, P.O. Box 45, Bar Harbor, Maine 04609 or online at Donations to the Bangor Symphony Orchestra can be mailed to P.O.

I worked with Al for nearly 2 years. New to the region, Al was welcoming and caring. We shared an enjoyment and appreciation for the UMaine art gallery openings, and while I didn’t always share them, I listened intently and appreciated to his passionate liberal views. Passion is a great way to describe Al. While quiet and reserved, he had a huge heart. It shone through! I admired his honesty, loyalty and commitment to he arts and Bangor.

As a principal of Nickerson & O’Day I had the pleasure of working with Al on many projects over the years. He was the consummate professional and a fair and honest business man who could always be counted on to do the right thing. He will be missed a great deal.

Very sorry for your loss. Al was an engineer with common sense - a rare commodity. I very much enjoyed working with him. He will be missed more than folks understand right now.
