David Lisle Brown returned back into the loving arms of the Lord on December 1, 2010 after a tragic fall on the ice as part of the management team of the Murray High Hockey Team. He was a loving husband, wonderful father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle and a great friend. As he passed through the veil, he was surrounded by his sweetheart and eternal companion, Michelle, his children, family and many dear friends.
Dave was born September 18, 1962 to Philip and Mary Ivory Brown of Murray, Utah. He graduated from Murray High and attended SL Community College. He married Michelle Schow, the love of his life, February 15, 1985. Their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple March 28, 1986. He was employed for 25 years by HWP and held a special place in his heart for every friend he worked with. His family, and everyone who knew him, will miss his constant care and unconditional love in their lives. Dave was a faithful member of the LDS Church. He served a mission in Tulsa, Oklahoma and held many leadership positions. His greatest calling was the wonderful example he set by sharing his strong testimony of our Savior, Jesus Christ. His heart opened up to every child who was blessed to know him, especially his grandson, Colin. Dave dedicated his life to coaching and managing every sports team his children played on. His family was his highest priority. He taught each of his children his motto: "Stick to the task 'til it sticks to you."
He is survived by his wife, Michelle; children, Kristopher (Libby), Madalynne, Parker (serving an LDS mission in the Dominican Republic) and Dakota; grandson, Colin; his parents, Phil and Mary Brown; brother, Mark (Jamie); sisters, Brenda (Bryan) Pett, Nancy (Kyle) Buist, Jenny (Reid) Mears, and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend their deepest appreciation to all the doctors, nurses and staff in the IMC Shock Trauma Unit for their valiant efforts and compassion.
