Brave Words. Braver Deeds. 

Forty-three years ago, Daniel Broadbent entered this world in love–into the open hands of his mother.  On December 4, 2021, after a brave fight with cancer, he left this world in love–holding the hands of his wonderful wife.

Dan was surrounded by family when he passed.  Above all, he loved his family–and they, him.  He is survived by his wife, Geri; daughters Hollyn, Paige, and Tess; and son Luke.  He is also survived by his parents Charles and Patricia Broadbent; sister Amy Walker (Eric); brothers Christian (Kelly), Jeremy (Lisa), and Joshua Broadbent (Jess); Geri’s parents Bill and Jennifer Hall, and her brother Jonathan Hall (Mallory); and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Dan served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Bogota, Colombia, and was an active member of the Church.

He was an accomplished scholar and attorney.  Dan graduated from the W.P. Carey School of Business and Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University in 2004, and from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln College of Law in 2010.  He practiced law with a large national law firm in the Phoenix area before starting his own practice in 2013: the Broadbent Law Firm.  Dan was the firm’s managing attorney and specialized in the practice areas of Business Law, Civil and Probate Litigation.  Ever dedicated to excellence for his clients, Dan worked right up until his passing.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Gilbert Memorial Park.  A viewing will be held on Thursday, December 9, 2021, from 6:00-8:00 pm at Gilbert Memorial Park, 2100 E. Queen Creek Road, Gilbert, AZ 85297.  The funeral will be held on Friday, December 10, 2021, 10:00 am at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 495 S. Greenfield Road, Gilbert, AZ 85234, with a viewing from 9:00-9:45 am.

    Lo recuerdo con su carisma para servir al progimo y cuando me dijo Davila sirva siempre con amor y de lo mejor que buen esposo y padre disfrutaron aqui pero lo bello que despues sera eterno hasta vernos con el rey Daniel

  • Such a good guy. I served with him in Colombia. He was serving in Melgar, I was in Girardolt and one night he and his companion were staying the night with us and I had bought a hammock. Dan thought it would be a great idea to jump into my hammock with me and we both hit the floor hard. The banister I had attached the hammock to broke clean off and it was made of concrete. The concrete banister crashed down the tile stairs breaking all the tile all the way down.
    We laughed so hard.
    Such a good guy.

    This is a very touching obituary of a life well lived. I didn’t know Dan but grew up with his little brother Josh. Condolences to the family. 💐💐💐

    I served the students at Dobson High for many years. Dan stands out as a caring young man who reached out to others in a compassionate way. It was my pleasure knowing Dan and his father.
