William Aldus (W.A.) Brockman, 89, Casey Creek, KY (1925-2015)
He was one of the great Adair Countians. He was a member of Knifley Christian Church and a World War II Army Veteran, where he was a member of the 82nd Airborne and a Paratrooper of which he was very proud. He was a prominent farmer and well known for his expertise with Angus cattle throughout the area. He was a devoted husband and father who loved his family and was proud of their accomplishments. He was the son of the late Willie and Ethel Dunbar Brockman. His wife of 64 years, Lena Forrest Brockman, survives. He leaves 32 living descendants. He was an extraordinarily engaging man who made longlasting friendships quickly, and retained a sense of curiosity and adventure throughout his life, wanting to learn all he could about his wonderful world. "Everytime I see a new road, I want to go down it, to see what's there," he would say.
