Obituary: Gareld L. Brown

Gareld L. Brown "Our Dad" Gareld L. Brown passed away Saturday, November 19, 2005 at home from complications due to congestive heart disease. Born January 22, 1935 in Moab, Utah to Charles Lee and Arvella Brown. He attended high school in Grand Junction Colorado, where he was a star athlete, most notably on the track team. He later attended BYU. He also served in the U.S. Army. He was a driller for Boyles Brothers for many years and worked in many parts of the country which eventually brought him to Eureka, Utah, where he met and married Patricia Ann Lucas October 26, 1957 at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. For 24 years he was employed at The Trane Company in Kearns, Utah. His greatest pleasure in life was working in his garden. His name was Brown but he had a green thumb. He later turned this love for the outdoors to golf, which he excelled at. His love of sports was a big part of his life. Whether watching football or basketball, everyone in the house knew when they scored or the refs made a bad call. He was a devout member of the Roman Catholic Church. Survived by his wife of 48 years, Patricia; children, Kenneth L. Brown, Peter (Susan) Brown, Collette (Brent) Peck, and Thomas D (Jan) Brown; two siblings, Marilyn Hobart of Grand Junction, and Terry (Cherie) Brown of Battlement Mesa, CO.
