Biography

  • Birth: Joseph William Brown was born on March 29, 1961 in Appleton, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: He died on July 9, 2007, at age 46, in Darboy, Calumet Co, Wisconsin.

    Brown, Joseph W.
    Joseph W. Brown, Darboy, age 46, passed away at his home on Monday, July 9, 2007, following a long and courageous battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). He was born on March 29, 1961, in Appleton, the son of Carl and Rita (Bohmann) Brown. Joe married the love of his life Amy Coopman on October 31, 1987. They had three children together: Nicole, Andy and Spencer. Joe was employed for over 18 years at Kimberly-Clark as a Research Technician and most recently worked at Pheifer Brothers Construction as a Materials Lab Manager for 6 years before his illness. Joe was a loving father, a devoted Packer fan and a great admirer of both Vince Lombardi and Ray Nitschke. He loved the outdoors and his hunting trips to the Marshfield area in search of the big one. He greatly enjoyed a good game of Yatzee with any one who dared to challenge him. He was a perfectionist in the purist sense, and thought, "anything worth having is worth working for." He applied his skills to the building of a bridge over the creek in Darboy so the children going to school and church at Holy Spirit could take the short cut. His faith in his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was his anchor and sure foundation.

    Joe is survived by his wife Amy, their three children: Nicole, Andy and Spencer; his mother Rita Brown, three brothers, Steve (Karin) Brown, Tim Brown, Bob (Linda) Brown, and one sister, Carla (special friend Candy Roth); mother- and father-in-law, Ronald and Dolores Coopman; sisters-in-law, Mickey (Dan) Walbrun and Denice (Bob) O'Connell, brothers-in-law, Dave (Patti) Coopman and Steve (Julie) Coopman; 14 nieces and nephews; and many other relatives and dear friends.

    Joe was preceded in death by his father Carl.

    A Mass of Resurrection for Joe will be held at Holy Spirit Parish at Holy Angels Church, Darboy at 11:00 a.m. Friday, July 13, 2007, with Tom Pomeroy and Fr. Quinn Mann co-officiating. Public visitation begins at 10:00 a.m. in Church. Relatives and friends may call at BOETTCHER FAMILY FUNERAL HOME, Kaukauna, on Thursday, July 12, 2007, from 4:00 p.m. with the Vigil Service beginning at 7:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established to benefit his children's education. 920-766-2099.

    Joe's family would like to thank the many, many wonderful compassionate friends and neighbors who offered so much assistance during his illness. Words cannot begin to speak of your unselfish kindness which will be forever remembered by them.

    2 Tim 4:7-8, I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. NKJV.
