Steven Brown passed away on April 9, 2014. He was the beloved husband of Dana, father of Susie, Andrew and Jordan, and father-in-law to Micha and Jennifer. Steve was born on August 11, 1955 on Larson Air Force Base, Moses Lake, Washington, and graduated from the University of Illinois in 1977. He married Dana in 1978 and they moved to Boca Raton in 1980 to open Brown's Interior Design on Federal Highway in Boca Raton. Steve was a member of Woodfield Country Club and served on the boards of Temple Beth El and the Florence Fuller Child Development Center. Steve's first passion was his family. He devoted every day to making a better life for his wife and children. His other passion was his business and those he worked with. Most people dread Sunday evenings because they have a long work week ahead. Steve loved his business so much that Sunday meant a new week to grow the business he loved. Steve also devoted his time to building deep friendships and always being there for his friends and family. Steve always conducted himself with the highest integrity and chose to lead by example. He was quicker to understand than to judge, always choosing to view problems from the other person's point of view. Although he ran a full-time business, Steve never missed one of his kids' sporting or school events. Steve was his kids' biggest fan, always guiding and supporting them. Steve loved watching basketball and football, especially it meant if he could fill his house and throw a viewing party with his friends and family. Steve is also known for his quirky fashion, including his beloved fanny-pack (which he swore is making a fashion comeback). Steve personified what a good friend is all about, always making sure that his family and friends were taken care of. Besides his wife and children, Steve is survived by his parents, Murray and Carol Brown; his in-laws, Allen and Bunny Sabath; his brother, David, and sister-in-law, Suzanne, and his sister, Pamela Nadler and brother-in-law Mark. Steve will be missed for the passion he brought to life and the love and devotion he committed to his family and friends. Not only will his friends and family miss him dearly, the entire community has suffered a great loss.
