Obituary for Thomas A Brown
Tom (Age 90) passed away peacefully on December 13th. He was born on December 8, 1928 to George Thomas and Susan Thorson Brown. He graduated from Lewis & Clark H.S and Whitworth University. He served in the Army during the Korean War in counter-intelligence.

He earned his way through college working 4 Spokesman Review routes and selling Watkins Products. He continued to work for Watkins Products as a distributor for over 60 years and was their top national distributor year after year and won numerous trophies and awards. He met Lucille F. (Lucy) Bray in 1952 when she went to work for him and they married shortly after at Central Lutheran Church and were married for 61 years. They went on to work together in later years.

Tom & Lucy had 5 children – Tom (Vicki) Brown, Kathy (Doug) Minor, Amy (David) Dahler, Peggy Brown, and Jeanne (Dan) Marsillo, grandchildren – Kari Minor, Luke (Anna) Minor, Ashley, Andrew & Aidan Dahler, Tonja (Matt Russell) Brown, and 2 great-grandchildren – Brandon & Helen Russell.

He was preceded in death by his dear wife Lucy, his parents, and his sisters – Marion, Lucille, Florence & Gert.

He had a love for photography that began when his parents gave him a brownie camera as a child and was rarely without a camera. He was a life-long member of Central Lutheran Church in Spokane. His grandfather was a Lutheran minister in Minnesota who immigrated from Norway. His passion in life was helping others and taking care of his family. He truly had a servant’s heart.

The family would like to thank the staff at Ridgeview Memory Care in Spokane Valley for their compassionate care in his last year. A service will be held later in the spring.
