LOA - Steve Burton Brown, 79, passed away peacefully at his home in Loa, Sept. 4, with his loving wife by his side.
He was born May 25, 1931, in Huntington, the youngest of the 10 children of John William and Minnie Hall Brown.
He attended North Emery High School, and then joined the U.S. Navy where he honorably served for four years.
He was married to his sweetheart, Allie Taylor, Jan. 29, 1952, in the Manti LDS temple. He graduated from Carbon College - now CEU - in Price and from Weber State College with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice.
He joined the Utah Highway Patrol in August 1956 and was stationed in Loa. He retired from the highway patrol after 26 years and was elected as Wayne County sheriff, where he served for four years. He was involved in all the peace officer associations in the state.
He was active in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve for 21 years, where he was involved in the Exxon-Valdez oil spill clean-up in Alaska in 1989. He spent 14 months supervising munitions loading during Desert Shield/Desert Storm in Port Chicago, Concord, California.
He was the first and only master chief from the Salt Lake unit. Steve was an integral part of the American Legion organization in the Harold Brown Post 92. He also held positions on the district and department level.
Steve was instrumental in bringing the first ambulances to Wayne and surrounding counties. He was on the Emergency Services Board, teaching and coordinating EMT courses throughout the state. He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held many positions.
Steve worked hard at many jobs throughout his life. He learned to work at a young age and worked hard. People knew that he always gave a full day's work for a full day's pay. He has left a legacy of honesty, integrity and hard work. He set a wonderful example for his children and grandchildren and he expects us to follow that model.
He is survived by his wife of 58 wonderful years, Allie, Loa; and children, Peggy (Dean) Chappell, Lyman; Bruce (Ramona) Brown, Bluebell; Dwight Brown, Loa; Dwayne (Brenda) Brown, Salina; 19 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law, LaRee Brown, Orangeville; and Roxella Brown, Tooele.
He was preceded in death by his parents and all nine of his siblings.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, Sept. 11, at 1 p.m., in the Loa LDS stake center in Loa. Friends may call for viewing at the Springer Turner Funeral Home in Richfield, Friday evening from 6 to 8 p.m., or Saturday at the church in Loa from 10 to 12:30 prior to the services.
