Brown, Herman A.*  
Herman A. Brown 94, of Alexandria, IN, went to his heavenly home on May 18, 2016. He was born August 19, 1921 in Alexandria, Indiana to Earney Byford and Anna Louise Brown.

Brown; his children Lon (Margie) Brown and Connie (Tom) Niessink; grandchildren Reggie Herman Brown, Robert Brown (fiancée Angela) and Aaron Brown; sisters Wilhelmina McGinnis Doell, Josephine (Ron) Ferguson, Margaret Miller Schessler; and special caregiver Amy Mauck.  He was preceded in death by his parents; his sister Wanda Tulowitzky Kibble Indermuehle; and brothers Henry W. Brown and Carl E. Brown. Herman was a Christian and was blessed to live in God's favor all the days of his life. He was a faithful servant of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and was a lifelong member of Our Blessed Savior Lutheran Church, in Alexandria, where he served on practically every board and every position in the Church, including President of the congregation, Sunday School Superintendent, and Bible Class Teacher. He was a faith-filled, optimistic and forward thinking person. After graduation from Alexandria High School in 1939, Herman enlisted in the Air Force and became a pilot in WWII. Herman flew everything from P-51s to B-25s and flew large carrier planes back and forth from San Francisco to Hawaii. He retired from the Air Force Reserves as a Lieutenant Colonel. He continued his love of flying and purchased his own airplane and flew for pleasure for many years. After WWII, Herman used the GI Bill to attend Purdue University and graduated in 1949 with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. Herman was a true Purdue Boilermaker and lifelong member of the John Purdue Club and a football and basketball season ticketholder. He was a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, at Purdue, and enjoyed many years of association with his fraternity brothers. In 1990, he was awarded the Purdue Alumni Citizenship Award. It was at Purdue that he met his wife, Roselynn. Upon graduation, Herman returned, with Roselynn, to Alexandria and went into the Insurance and Real Estate Business. He had real estate offices in Alexandria, Anderson, and Muncie and built his business into the largest real estate firm in Madison County in the 1970s and 1980s. He served his community as President of the local Kiwanis Club, President of the Madison County Association for Retarded Citizens and President of the Madison County Association of Realtors. He was appointed by Senator Richard Lugar to serve on the Air Force Academy Merit Selection Committee. In addition to all of Herman's accomplishments, he was an extraordinary husband, father and grandfather. He loved his family and creating family traditions was very important to him. Simply put, the lives of his wife, children and extended family were better and special because of him. Services celebrating Herman's life, legacy and faith will take place at 1 p.m. on Friday, May 27, 2016 in the Our Blessed Savior Lutheran Church, 309 West Washington Street, Alexandria with Pastor Kal Rissman officiating.
