Dean Brown, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, special uncle and friend died Jan. 27, 2007, at the family home in Charleston, Utah.

He was born July 7, 1929, to George N. and Lody McNaughton Brown in Ucolo, Utah. In his youth the family moved to Heber, then to the family farm in Charleston. He attended Wasatch High School where he was involved in many activities and enjoyed many friendships that have lasted throughout the years.

He married Alice Patricia Terry June 7, 1952, in Park City. They were married 54 years and had two children, Alan and Terri.

Dean was a hard worker. He worked on the family dairy farm all of his life. He also worked for Mail Carriers, Inc for 17 years. He was a member of the LDS Church and proud of his pioneer heritage. He carried on the family love of working the soil, especially in his yard, where he grew beautiful roses and trees. He was fun loving, loved music, dancing, singing and telling a good story or two. He attended many sporting events through the years to watch family members participate. Sunday evenings were especially enjoyable as many family members gathered to enjoy each other’s company.

He is survived by his wife; Alice Patricia of Charleston; children: Alan (Carol Lee) Brown of Charleston; Terri Lynette Brown of Heber; sister: Lorina (Harold) Hayfen of Roy, Utah; four grandchildren and five great-granddaughters.
