Bill Brown Memorial Fund

The untimely passing of our friend, brother, uncle and son, Bill “Billy” Brown, is a tragic loss for his family and friends who loved him dearly. We are asking for donations in hopes that the money raised will allow his family to grieve his death without worrying about the costs of covering Bill’s end of life services. Funds raised through this Go Fund Me fundraiser will go to his brother, Nick Brown, who bears the financial burden of Bill’s funeral expenses.

Bill was an exceptional man. Raised in Laguna Beach, California, he was passionate about the outdoors and most importantly, his family and friends. His most profound experience was a larger role in the life of his nephew, Max Brown, whom Bill had raised since Max was 5 years old. Now that Bill is gone, Max will be cared for by Nick and he will do his best to fill the role of Bill and provide a nurturing home for Max.  

We miss him so much. A recent acknowledgement in the Stu News Laguna  vividly captured the quality of man Bill was. Thank you for your consideration and support of the Brown family.
