Adolph Broederlow

On Wednesday, June 5th, 2024, our beloved father Adolph Peter Broederlow, also known by those closest to him as “Fuiavailili,Atofu” returned to the arms of his Heavenly Father. He was surrounded by loved ones at home in West Valley City, Utah.

Fuiavailili Atofu was born on June 6th, 1935, in Iva Savai’i, Samoa. He was number 11 of 13 children. His parents were Johann Peter Oscar Broederlow of Natewa Bay, Fiji and his mother Valasi Sa’e Asomua of Iva Savai’i, Samoa. 

He was married to our beautiful mother Laveileoge La’ulu Broederlow for 59 years who preceded him in death in December of 2022.

He is survived by his 6 remaining children, 24 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, and his younger brothers Harry Broederlow and Magele Osa Broederlow.

His children are as follows (youngest to oldest)  Irene Laveileoge Masina (Lance), Leonard Lafoga Broederlow, Doris Fa’ataualofa Tumanuvao(Samoa), Joyce Valasi Young Yen (Risati), Rudolph Clay Broederlow (Timena), Lilly Joyleen Lavata’I (Edison), and our dearly departed oldest brother: 

Adolf Broederlow (Iutiti Apo). 

Dad was a proud and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He lived by the words that he preached. He spent most of his life sharing his testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel with whomever he encountered. He served in many capacities but found his true calling in missionary and temple work. 

Our father was an extremely loving and caring individual. Throughout his life, he taught his children the importance of family and hard work. He found joy in sharing stories of his childhood, caring for our mother,  and spending time with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Our father showed us by example how to work hard, provide for his family, and to be self-reliant.  He didn’t approve of spending frivolously and taught himself to fix his own cars, a skill he passed onto his sons.  He laid the groundwork for us to follow in his footsteps so we could provide our own children with better opportunities. Dad had a wonderful sense of humor that came in handy whenever we were being too serious. A talent he passed on to his posterity. 

We will miss that and so many other endearing things about the man we called dad, grandpa, and great-grandpa.   

 A family service will be held in his honor at:

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

Granger North Stake Building: 3175 South 3450 West, West Valley City, UT 84120. 

Date: Tuesday, June 11th, 2024, from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm followed by a Bishop’s service between 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm.
