He spent much of his adult life in Waco in the Real Estate Business. Carlos enjoyed fishing, bird hunting and dancing. He was a master fish fryer and a loyal friend. Carlos loved Mexican food and he enjoyed life. He cared for his mother in her final months. He was a favorite of the hospital staff during his last days. We miss his sense of humor, his silly songs, his congeniality. He never stopped growing.
He is preceded in death by his parents, and his brother, Bernis Broadwater. He is survived by four children: Tom Broadwater and wife Dawn; John Broadwater and wife Cindy; Richard Broadwater; and daughter, Betzi Kelton and her husband Jim. Carlos has five grandchildren.
