Obituary: Eric Brown

April 6, 1972 – May 26, 2022

Eric Jordan Brown departed our precious world May 26th, 2022, at the young age of 50.

He will be remembered as a kind compassionate soul that never met a stranger. He made everyone feel important and valued his one-on-one relationships with them. He was exceptionally good at making people feel like they were the only person in the room. Those strong connections are what most will remember him for.

Eric also had an immense connection with the outdoors. All throughout his life the things he enjoyed doing the most were things he did outside. He shared his love of the outdoors with most everyone in his life, whether it be skiing, camping, fishing, snow shoeing, frisbee golf, nights by a campfire, or simply a night on the porch, the outdoors with loved ones seemed to be where he was the happiest. Especially if there was a good fishing hole nearby.

He loved music, art, learning, a good challenge, and living his life to the fullest.

He is survived by wife Brenda, sons River and Stone, mother Vickie, bonus dad Don, bonus mom Mary, brothers Ty & Jamie, sisters Mandy, Tiffanie, Kali, & Emily, Grandma Margie, in-laws; Lyle & Anita, Butch, Curtis, Jason, Colby, Adam, Victoria, Kimberley, & numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

He was preceded in death by dad Terry, daughter Zoe, Grandpa Victor, uncle Randy, and in-laws Monica & Tony.

A celebration of life is being held at 2 PM, Saturday, June 18th, 2022, at Riverbend Park, 451 Pendleton Street, Palisade, CO 81526.

Those attending are asked to wear their favorite pair of shoes and their favorite festive shirt.
