Philip Michael Broome

Philip Michael Broome, of Cumming, Georgia, a loving family man, community leader, coach, public speaker, and motivator passed away unexpectedly at the age of 49 on July 19th, 2022.  

Raised in Houston, TX, Philip was a star athlete in soccer and football at Eisenhower High School.  His talents extended beyond the sports arena as he was also a gifted stage performer, starring in various high school and college theater productions. After graduating from Rivier University in Nashua, NH, Philip relocated to Alpharetta, Georgia. In 1999, while both working for the YMCA, a mutual friend introduced Philip to the love of his life, Linda (Spence), and in  2002, they were married. Philip and Linda went on to have three beautiful children, Hunter (18), Hayden (17) and Hailey (13). 

Immediately becoming a staple in the North Fulton community, Philip served the cities of Alpharetta and Milton in various aspects of recreation and parks, all while having an infectious positive influence on every life he touched. Philip coached boys and girls soccer and football at Milton High School and also served as a paraprofessional supporting students with special needs.  Philip made a lasting impact both on and off the field, winning state championships in football and soccer and winning the hearts of the parents and students alike. On top of his high school involvement, he was also an integral part of the coaching staffs for Alpharetta Ambush and United Futbol Academy. 

Outside of his community and coaching involvement, Philip enjoyed playing golf, home improvement projects, boating on Lake Lanier, grilling with family and watching all sports, especially The University of Oklahoma teams. His biggest love of all was his family. Philip preached the importance of having a close-knit family and was the most boisterous parent at his kids soccer games and school endeavors.          

Philip loved playing practical jokes and had an amazing wit. He had a sarcastic sense of humor often creating nicknames for his players and friends. Halloween was one of his favorite days of the year.  Philip did not know how to use his inside voice and he could often be heard from several fields away. Philip would rarely be seen without his beloved Dunkin coffee and loved wearing his “Friends don’t let friends drink S*arbucks” shirt.  He often spoke in movie quotes and was the king of one liners…”Now it’s a party”.

To know him was to love him, and by extension, be motivated by his positive influence and uplifting personality.  Philip emphasized the importance of leaving a legacy with all of his student-athletes, not just in athletics but in the classrooms, community and their homes as well.  He embodied all that is brilliant with leadership and defined what a true legacy should resemble. A living legend gone too soon.  

Philip is survived by his loving wife Linda, sons Hunter and Hayden, daughter Hailey, mother Diana, brother Jason (Stephanie), mother-in-law Nancy Spence, brother-in-law Tim Spence (Lisa), his 3 nieces and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
