Lewis Brown - April 4, 1933 - Dec. 6, 2015



Lewis Brown

Lewis Brown, 82, died Sunday, Dec. 6, 2015, at Mountain Haven in Seward from complications of Parkinson's Dementia. He will be remembered as a generous man who dearly loved his friends and family.

He was born April 4, 1933, in Walton County, Florida, to the late John and Ethel Brown. Brown moved to Washington and worked in mills, cranberry bogs, oyster farming and joined Laborer's Local 252. He retired in May 1994.

Brown met the love of his life, Carol Mae Reeves of Hoquiam, Washington and they were married Nov. 22, 1953 in Aberdeen. They were married for 51 years. They had one son, Roy (Teresa) Brown (Montesano, Washington) and two daughters, Deborah (Russell) Schaeffer (Kalispell, Montana) and Pamela (Bruce) Kullander (Satsop, Washington). Lewis was predeceased by Carol in January 2005.

He moved in 2009 to enjoy the beautiful scenery and outdoor activities offered in Alaska. He loved gardening, yard work, fishing (and he caught a plentiful supply of salmon and sturgeon) as well as hunting. He definitely kept the freezer supplied with deer and elk. He enjoyed dancing with Carol for a great many years.

He spent many years devoted to his grandchildren and truly loved them, and will be missed by all who knew him.

He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He will be especially missed by his friend Jackie Collins of Sterling and the staff at the Fireweed Lodge. His smile and sense of humor will be missed by everyone entering the front door.

The family is especially grateful for the loving care provided by Providence Seward Mountain Haven personnel.

A celebration of life was held Dec. 18. A private family burial is planned in Washington.

Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel & Crematory.
