Life Story / Obituary
With his family by his side, Daniel C."Danny" Brown, age 75, passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday June 13, 2020. Daniel was born in Racine on January 27, 1945, son of the late Daniel and Helen (nee: Ulcek) Brown.
He was a proud graduate of St. Catherine’s High School “Class of 1963”. On May 7th, 1966 Dan married his high school sweetheart, Marjorie Blaha at St. Patrick Catholic Church. He was employed for many years as a carpenter building local homes and ultimately as a millwright with Chrysler Corporation in Kenosha until his retirement in February of 2002. Dan was a member of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. During his retirement he enjoyed bowling and golfing with his buddies. An avid card fan, Dan was always up for a game Rook, Bridge, Shaskopf, or Cribbage with his family and friends. Above all, Danny will be best remembered for his friendly smile and his jokester nature.
He is survived by his wife of 54 years Marjorie Brown; his children Jeffrey (Cherrie) Brown of Sherrills Ford, NC and David (Amy) Brown of Racine along with grandchildren Madeline, Michael, Molly, Calista and Aiden; sisters Catherine (Michael) Kosterman, Claire (Daniel) Kosterman, Christine Plant, Carol Schoening and sister in-law Lucille Brown; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his brother Patrick Brown, brothers-in-law Douglas Plant and Dave Schoening.
