Donald Brown
July 8, 1948 - January 27, 2021
Resident of San Jose
Don was born to Sergeant Owden Brown and his German bride, Eva, in Hof, Germany. He passed away from COVID-related pneumonia on January 27, 2021.
He was a devoted and caring husband and father; skilled in woodworking, car and motorcycle mechanics, and cooking; a charismatic leader, who readily charmed store clerks, teachers and salesmen, with a quick wit that would delight and draw you in. Don's last corporate position was with IBM. He was the founder and President of the Classic Japanese Motorcycle Club. Don served his country in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.
Don is survived by his wife, Donna Brown, and their children, Matthew and Jennifer. Due to the ongoing pandemic, a memorial service will be held later in the summer when it's safe to gather.
