Obituary for David Brown

David  Brown
David Lecil Brown
(9 May 1950- 23 February 2018)

David Lecil Brown was born on May 9, 1950 in Wenatchee, Washington to Harold Houston and Ruth Helen (Hook) Brown. Dave’s grandparents, William C. and Olive Brown had relocated from Nebraska to Waterville, Washington prior to Harold’s birth in January 1910. Dave graduated from Wenatchee High School in 1968, and attended Wenatchee Junior College before transferring to Eastern Washington State College in Cheney, where he obtained a BS degree in Psychology in 1972. It was during his tenure at Eastern that he met and married the love of his life, an Elementary Education Major, Louise Helen Todd.

Dave and Louise were married in Coulee Dam, Washington on March 18, 1972.
After graduation, the couple moved to Wenatchee, where Dave worked briefly as a milk delivery man before being hired by Chelan County PUD as a seasonal gardener at Rocky Reach Dam. Dave’s 35 years of employment at the PUD included being a Student Guide, Operator, Operations Superintendent and ERP Technical Administrator.
Dave was not content to sit around and he was not ready for total retirement, so Dave, Louise and their son Craig started Cozy Comfort, a successful heating and air conditioning business in Wenatchee. In 2008 Dave went to work for Avista in Spokane as an operator, and later became a Special Projects Manager. He commuted between Wenatchee and Spokane retiring a second time in May of 2015.
Dave, Louise, and their family love spending free time at their summer cabin at Rainbow Beach, on the North Twin Lake, in Inchelium. Dave referred to the cabin as the “H.O.E” (Heaven On Earth). Over the years Dave proficiently completed numerous home and garden projects. He was continually giving of his time, energy and talents to friends and family alike. He developed several passions and hobbies through the decades, which included photography, stained glass, radio controlled airplanes, bible study, fishing, online gaming and computer technology. Dave always had a need for speed: whether it be one of his bicycles, motor cycles or skiing.
One of his Dave’s greatest joys was his grandchildren. He enjoyed taking them skiing at Mission Ridge and rarely missed sporting, music or dance events. Dave was also the “Master” of his Annual Scavenger hunt which his grandchildren looked forward to every year on Easter.
Dave is survived by his wife Louise, sons Craig (Tracy), and Mark (Mandi); his brothers Phillip of East Wenatchee and Richard of South Carolina; his grandchildren: Conner, Hailie, Conrad, Kaylee and Kody; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Dave will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
