Ralph Ernest Brown

Ralph Ernest Brown, June 23, 1940 - February 2, 2024

We said goodbye to Ralph Ernest Brown (The Legend) after a couple weeks in hospice care. His family was grateful to be with him at home as he let go of the physical and mental binds of this earth. He was an adventurous, creative, patient, soft-spoken and kind father, husband, and brother. Ralph was happiest with family and enjoyed seeing friends throughout the years. He worked hard and found connection in nature, joy in winemaking, patience in art, and peace with reading. He was a Navy veteran and made a life for his family by his own hands and commercial design skills. 

Ralph lived in the mountains of Colorado, on a lake in Minnesota and spent his remaining years in Vermont. By his words and actions, he lived a meaningful life worth celebrating. We pray his soul reunites with his siblings and his parents whom he lost many years ago. He will not be alone nor will he be lost. 

Ralph’s caring spirit lives on in his beautiful wife Jeri of 51 and a half years, three compassionate sons, eight adventurous grandchildren, his remaining sister, and nine nephews and nieces. We mourn his passing only because his presence was precious, and his heart was so grand.
