Kenneth "Kenny" Lee Brower, 60, of Rexburg, died Friday, March 8, 2013, at his home surrounded by his family. He has gone to heaven to join his wife, Merri Ann, and son, Ricky.
He was born Jan. 11, 1953, in Idaho Falls to Richard Ivan and Elva JaNeal "Betty" Finn Brower. He was raised in Teton Valley and graduated from Teton High School.
He worked as a barber in Driggs for a time and then for the past 30 years, in Rexburg.
His daughters were lucky to know him as the best Dad three girls could ever have. Kenny loved everyone and was a beloved member of the Rexburg community. He spent his free time hunting and fishing and camping with his family. His grandchildren, sons-in-law and daughter-in-law have cherished being a member of his family.
Kenny married his beloved wife, Merri Ann, in 1973. They were married for 37 happy years until Merri Ann's death just 19 short months ago.
Kenny's brothers were his best friends. Rarely a day went by that he didn't see or speak with at least one of them. Kenny's brothers, sisters-in-law and nieces have been loving and generous with their time and energy throughout Kenny's illness.
His infectious laughter and practical jokes will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Kenny was the most honest, patient and compassionate man we have ever had the pleasure to know. We love you, Dad, and know that you and Mom will be at every ballgame cheering on your beloved grandkids.
The family extends a special thank-you to Camille Hinck of Hospice Alliance.
He is survived by his children, Kristi (Ronda Knudsen) Brower, Katie (Scott) Weaver and Kara (Nick) Burrows; grandchildren, Mike Brower, Mykah Weaver, Mataya Weaver, Marianna Weaver, Mea Burrows and Jackson Burrows; brothers, Garon (Norma) Brower, Tharon (Linda) Brower and Michael (Jackie) Brower; and mother-in-law, Marian Pfeiffer.
He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Merri Ann; son, Ricky; and sister, Jean Wulf.
