For many years, he enjoyed boating and being a part of the Drifters Boat Club. A special place he loved to go to is a family cottage in Lewiston, Mich., where he enjoyed sitting on the beach in his favorite shaded spot, fishing, sitting by a bonfire and even dirt biking, four wheeling and snow mobile riding. He really enjoyed being outdoors, fishing, pheasant and turkey hunting. A hobby he also loved was flying model airplanes, and he made several new friends when he joined an airplane club.

Mr. Brown will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
