Douglas Lee Brown, 60, of Auburn, Washington, went to be with the Lord, October 6, 2019 surrounded by his family. Doug, as he was known to most was born September 9, 1959 in Tacoma, Washington to parents Floyd and Wanita Brown.
A member of the Yakama Nation it was in Doug’s blood to work with the land, in his heart to work with the waters of this beautiful Pacific Northwest and that he did. For 40 years, Doug made a career out of long days working at the fish hatchery. In his spare time, you could still find Doug working with his hands. Out in the woods hunting, playing basketball and baseball, gardening and smoking fish, but most of all you could find him with his children and grandchildren that he adored. He would always be the dad and grandpa down on the floor playing any games the children wanted. The children also knew just where to find dad and grandpa’s candy dish….
Those left to carry on Doug’s legacy of love and kindness are his wife, Norma Brown; children, April Brown, Eddie Brown, Russell Brown, Bettina Brown, Amber LaCour, Collett Grant, Eric Pacheco and Loney Atimalala; 20 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Doug is also survived by his siblings; Floyd Brown Jr, Rodney Brown, Vicky Brown, Wade Brown and Ethaline Brown.
