Brown 96, son of Martin and Leila (Hull) Brown was born and raised on the family homestead in North Valley County on July 17, 1921.
In 1951, the family moved to the Klind Ranch, south of Hinsdale, ultimately doing the farming of all Waino’s cropland – until he injured his back while carrying a sack of grain pellets to feed cattle during the winter of 1959.
He was proud of his Army experience, but never shared many stories.
The Park Grove Bar echoed with his huge laugh during the time he and Mom operated it.
It kept him busy and everyday he was up and out the door by AM with places to go and people to see and grass to cut.
His greatest joy were his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
