Larry Brom has diedPosted: November 5, 2015
Dad died this morning of a heart attack. He was talking and laughing with his nurse and then he was gone. Other than being at a wargame table, rolling D-6’s, this was a good way for him to go.
We will gather this weekend in New Orleans at Colonial Barracks and remember, roll dice and tell stories of battles past, all the while thinking of Larry Brom and the hobby he loved so much. And if anyone, anywhere, is around a game table, please raise a glass to the one who gave us “The Sword and The Flame”
“Good job, Bugler”
Lori and Christy Brom
I never met Larry, but when he was in the process of preparing the 20th Anniversary edition of his famous Colonial wargame rules THE SWORD AND THE FLAME, we exchanged a number of emails about designing rules … and he was kind enough to mention me in the Acknowledgments that were published in the rules.
It is a testament to the excellence of his original rules that they are still used by a large number wargamers.
Larry will be missed by a lot of people, and I want to publicly record my condolences to his family. Larry was proud to have served in the US Marine Corps, so my final words are that Corps’ motto …
