Berkley Brown

Berkley Brown passed away on Saturday, September 10th at Sienna Crest Assisted Living in Oregon, Wisconsin at 92 years of age. Berk left behind his best friend and loving wife of 68 yrs., Dorothy (Collins) Brown. Berk was born and raised in Boscobel Wisconsin then left for the Air Force in Biloxi Mississippi where he met his wife. He spent his years living in Pass Christian Mississippi then relocated to Wisconsin to be near family. Berk is preceded in death by his mother, Nell Brown, Father Harry Brown, brother Bradley Brown, sisters Jo Baumgartner, Jean Brickson and Betty Ann Austin.

Berkley is survived by his daughters Lori (Dave) Deegan, Terri (Gerry) DiNardo and 4 grandchildren, Kelly Deegan, Eric Deegan (Caitlin), Michael DiNardo and Kate DiNardo (Greg Buikema).

Berkley will be remembered for his quick wit and sense of humor, joking with everyone he meets. He had a very happy outlook on life and loved being with his family, fishing, singing, working in his yard and listening to church music. Berk could play many musical instruments, never having learned to read music. He also spent many years pitching for his church softball team and was a member of Midvale Baptist Church for many years. Berk loved the Brewers, Packers, Badgers and sports in general.

The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Sienna Crest in Oregon and the special nurses and staff at Heartland Hospice.

A private memorial will be held in Berkley’s honor.
