Sun Prairie–Dale E. Brown, age 66, of Sun Prairie, passed away peacefully surrounded by family at U.W. Hospital on Monday, March 6, 2017.

He was born December 13, 1950 in Madison, one of eight children of Frank and Retta (Crouch) Brown.

Dale’s hobbies included home and cabin improvement projects, fishing and hunting at their beloved cabin on Island Lake, and dabbling in day trading. He treasured time spent with his family playing cards, (not very well) and hosting family gatherings and turning out the lights when it was time for everyone to go home.

Dale will be deeply missed by his wife, Kris; children, Lisa (Nic) Betow and Mike Brown; grandchildren, Ethan, Liam and Nora Betow; siblings, Terri (Larry) Klubertanz, Joe (Kim) Brown, Rhonda (Dan) Dunn, Carol (Tom) Pedretti, Kevin (Ginny Martin) Brown, Brenda (Tony) Mueller; and nieces, nephews and extended family.

The family extends a special thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff at U.W. Hospital TLC for caring so well for Dale and his family.
