He was predeceased by daughter Nancy Brown Skirvin (Glenn) and first wife Carmen Freeman Brown, the mother of his three children. He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Marjorie Weber, sons Stephen Brown (Marilou) and Dennis Brown, grandsons Andy Skirvin (K.D.) and Mike Skirvin (Sarah), and three great-grandsons.

He enjoyed fishing, golf, trapshooting, ham radio, collecting and trading Indian War period guns, camping, skiing, and traveling extensively. He requested no services and his ashes were laid to rest with Carmen at Greenwood Memorial Park. He will be sorely missed.
