It is with deep sadness that we, the members of CERV, express our heartfelt condolences for the loss of our beloved friend and colleague, Broeck Oder. Broeck was an esteemed and dedicated leader of Pacific Grove CERT, known for meticulously recording minutes during CERT advisory meetings and generously offering his time as a volunteer for CERV, a non-profit organization. Whenever CERV organized community events, Broeck's unwavering presence and willingness to contribute were always evident as he tirelessly promoted Community Emergency Preparedness.
We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to have had the privilege of walking alongside Broeck throughout the years. We are just a few of the many individuals who have experienced the warmth and friendship he shared with others. Broeck possessed a smile that not only radiated through his eyes but also extended to everyone around him, never expecting anything in return.
Rest assured, dear friend, that CERV will continue its mission in a manner that honors your memory and legacy. We stand united, ready to support one another, as we move forward.
