Albert "Al" Douglas Brodie, 71, passed away on August 20, 2023, at his residence in Erhardt, SC. Al was a doting husband, brother, father, Pappy, and friend. Always wearing a joyful smile on his face, he loved good company and rarely ever met a stranger.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lewis and Irma Brodie, and his wife, Miaja Brodie.
Born March 22, 1952, Al was adopted by Lewis and Irma Brodie at the age of 10. He lived a loving and fulfilled childhood as an only child however, in 2011, at the age of 59, he was reunited with his birth sister, Sherri.
Al spent his younger adult life residing in New Hampshire and the greater of his adult life was spent raising his family in Cottageville, SC.
A Vietnam Veteran, Al proudly served his country in the Army for one year and in the Navy for eight years. After his military service, he pursued a career in trucking, dedicating himself to his work until his retirement at the age of 70. His trucker friends affectionately coined his CB handle as "Weasel".
