Bruce Brown, 64, of La Porte, Indiana, passed away peacefully Friday, January 13th, 2023, at Northwest Health - La Porte.
He was born October 16th, 1958, in Heidelberg, Germany, the son of the late Leroy Brown and Lila (Cavin) Brown.
Born in Heidelberg, Germany but raised within a US Army family primarily in Rockford, Illinois, Bruce graduated from Harlem High School. He later moved to La Porte, where he worked on the family cattle farm raising chickens and cows. He most recently worked as a truck driver for Ryder in South Bend, Indiana. Bruce found joy in cooking, gardening, and solving crossword puzzles; “always in pen, never in pencil.” He enjoyed listening to music and was an all-around Chicago sports fan. He loved nothing more than to spend time with family, especially his grandson Henry. Bruce was known for always cracking his “dad jokes” and tending to be "too nice for his own good."
He is survived by his mother, two daughters, Ashley (Brian) Clahan of New Carlisle, IN, Brooklyn Brown-Sater of New Carlisle, IN; two brothers, Keith "Yo" Brown of Rolling Prairie, IN, Jay (Susie) Brown of Pinckney, MI; three sisters, Margo Brown-Brinkmeier of Rockford, IL, Denise (Tom) Argyle of Rockford, IL, Cherie (Phil) Schwenk of La Porte, IN; grandchild, Henry Clahan; and eight nieces and nephews.
Arrangements are being entrusted to Haverstock Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 602 Maple Avenue, La Porte, IN where the family will receive friends Friday, January 20, 2023, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm CST. A eulogy and prayer will be given at 7:00 pm CST. Cremation will take place.
