Bromley was and still is a hero. My father works for Local 112 and has been part of the union for over 30+ years. As a child, I had Bromley's autobiography in my room and never had the chance to read it until I reached high school. His story inspired me and I made it a priority to tell my classmates and teachers about his good fight. I eventually had the pleasure to meet Bromley and it was nothing short of an honour.
Rest peacefully, you are a champion of the people.
Kevin, Andrea and family. We are so sorry for the loss of your father. He was a leader all his life and never faulteted from his beliefs and values. He was an incredible man and left his mark. We know this is a tremendous loss and offer our prayers and deepest condolences. He is watching and protecting from above now. God bless you all!
Dear Marlene, Lana, Anita, and the immediate and extended Armstrong Family, I was saddened to hear of the passing of Bromley on the CBC news while driving home from work in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago, and I'm sorry for your loss. Anita and I were classmates at Walter Perry Public School, and later at Midland Avenue Collegiate Institute. I attended the YMCA at the same time as a number of the Armstrong children when it was offered at Midland Avenue CI, and would often look for Mr. Armstrong and family at the swimming pool while attending the public swims when I was there without my parents. I would regularly ask Mr. Armstrong if he could be my father during those swims, and he would laugh and always say yes, thereby allowing me to continue swimming in the pool, with supervision. Our legacy as humans continues on in the lives of those our life has touched along the way. My life was was positively influenced by the life of Bromley Armstrong over five decades ago, and a part of his amazing legacy continues to live on through me, as it does through so many others. Until next we connect, may all of you remain well, travel safely, and never fail to be gentle with yourselves. With warm regards, Stephen
We are deeply saddened on the passing of a beautiful and lovely caring person Bromley Armstrong. He was a tower of strength to so many in Toronto, and a shining example of how people should be treated.
Brom and Marlene was very kind and generous to our family. He has led a long life, and will be sadly missed.
Marlene and Lana have been stalwarts with his care and support.. May he Rest in Peace eternally, as God was ready to have him come home Special Blessings and Prayers to the entire family.
I knew and worked with Bromley at both the OHRC and the OLRB. He was a credit to both institutions. The thing I admired most was his sense of humour. He was able to lighten the mood of any tense situation., and what he said was always funny and relevant. His interventions were the basis of many agreements. My sincere condolences to the family, we have truly lost one of the greats.
My sincere condolences to Bromley's family. I met him in the early 70's shortly after I came to Toronto. He was instrumental in helping me get settled and finding a job. He certainly was a stalwart in the Jamaican-Canadian community and will be sorely missed.
So sorry for your loss Aunt Marlene. May you find comfort in knowing he lived well and will be remembered for all his accomplishments. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May he Rest In Peace
Natalie, Dean & Family
