David Keith “Chip” Broome


David Keith “Chip” Broome of Slidell, Louisiana, passed away the morning of Monday, January 24, 2022 at the age of 46.  He was a beloved father, son, brother, and uncle.


David was preceded in death by his father, Billy Lee Broome; mother, Nancy Quay Davis; brother, Kevin Lee Broome; and his niece, Samantha Quay Mcginnis. 


He is survived by his two children, Liem Takaota Broome and Shiloh Misae Broome; ex-wife, Jessica Anne Guntner Broome; three sisters, Jenny Bates, Emma Broome, and Lizetta Metcalf; three nephews, Turner Metcalf, Jack Opper, and Will Opper; and three nieces, Megan Mcginnis, Grace Opper, and Claire Opper.


David was the kind of person that was always on the move.  If it was as a family man, he was fixing a feast of a meal.  If it was at work, he was building a jungle and making art.  If it was as a friend, it was with humor and love.  David loved to travel and share his experiences and he was never without a story or advice.  He constantly gave his heart and soul into any situation he approached.  Not only is David survived by his family but also by everyone who he called a friend. We love you and will miss you bunches.


Cherokee Prayer

Hold onto what is good, even if it a handful of earth.

Hold on to what you believe, even if it is a tree which stands by itself.

Hold on to what you must do, even if it is a long way from here.

Hold onto life, even when it is easier letting go.

Hold onto my hand, even when I have gone away from you.


A celebration of David’s life will take on Friday, January 28, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Audubon Funeral Home in Slidell.  Memories and condolences may be expressed at www.AudubonFuneralHome.com
