My father, John H. Broehl Sr., was instrumental in the establishment and growth of my company.
It was my father that instilled in me such a strong work ethic. It is he who taught me the value of customer relations and it is he who taught me to take such a deep level of pride in my work. It is these qualities upon which we built Broehl's Lawn Maintenance, Inc. It will be these very same qualities that we will continue to base our services upon in the future.
Please take a moment to read my father's obituary as was printed in The Home News Tribune on November 21, 2009:

Since his retirement from GATX, John took great pride in helping his son John grow his successful landscaping business, Broehl's Landscaping. A member of St. Bartholomew RC Church in East Brunswick, John was a former member of the East Brunswick Rescue Squad, and a volunteer for Senior meal deliveries for nearly 10 years.
