In Memoriam

William Francis Brown, Jr.
July 12, 2019

William Brown, age 73, passed away on July 12, 2019, in Woodland Park, Colo. After graduating from the Air Force Academy, he moved to Woodland Park and began his land development and building company. It is there that he had a family and raised his children.

He loved traveling; something he instilled his children. He showed his kids that exploring new places and cultures was magical. Some of his favorite memories and stories were from long road trips, living in Japan as a teenager, family adventures through Mexico, Europe and a special father-son trip to Machu Picchu.

He spent a few years in Guadalajara, Mexico, working with local churches and a few of his later years in Phoenix, Ariz., to be closer to family. Even with the change of scenery, his heart was always in the mountains. He made his way back to Woodland Park in the summer of 2019.

He is survived by his daughter Andrea and grandchildren Mia and Oliver of Phoenix, Ariz., and his son Jed and grandchildren Emma and Jack of Seattle Wash.                                                                         (Andrea Rodriguez, William's daughter)
