Daniel Patrick Brown

Daniel Patrick Brown of the Town of Genesee died peacefully at his cherished home surrounded by his loving family and dear friends on Mon, June 30, 2014 at the age of 49 years after an almost four-year courageous battle with colon cancer.

He was the dearly beloved husband of Kimberely (nee Scheifen) for 18 years this past May 18, and the loving and devoted father of Riley and Jack as well as his 12year-old Lab, Dutch, and new 6-month-old Chesapeake Bay retriever puppy, Wing.

He was the precious son of Valerie Brown (nee Reuschlein), and dearly loved brother of Jeanne (Jim) Blachowicz, Mark (Luann) Brown and Stephen Brown. He was the loving uncle of Emily, Alex, Ryan, Madalyn, Mitchell, Katie, John, Danny, Ashley, and Cory.

He was preceded in death by his father, Patrick F. Brown. He is further survived by in-laws, uncles, aunts, cousins, and by many wonderful friends.

Dan was a longtime resident of Waukesha and graduated from Waukesha South High School in 1983 and went on to receive his degree in business at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. His entire career was happily spent working for Pat and Sue Barney at Aerial Work Platforms for over 25 years in sales. He was an avid outdoorsman with a passion for duck hunting that he shared with his brothers, cousins, nephews and close friends but most especially his son, Jack. He had a special gift for engaging and making a connection with people and was a truly loyal friend to so many both personally and professionally.
