Sunday, July 27, 2014

Obituaries are condensed biographies of people's lives, written by the people who loved them. Like a memorial service, they tell us things we may not have known about the person, and may leave us wishing we had known them better.

Donald G. Brown  1924-2014 He attended the old Lake Forest Park Elementary and went to Roosevelt High School before there were local high schools. He joined the Navy in 1942 for WWII and was part of the D-Day Invasion. He had a career in the airline industry, eventually founding a company that produced airplane parts. He designed and built the family home in Sheridan Heights. After the children were raised, Don and Jeanne spent their time in California and cruising on their boat - but they never missed a Husky football home game.
