Robert Kenneth Brown

March 25th 1952 – March 20th 2017

Survived by brothers Ronald and Rodney, son Russell, and grandchildren Levi and Lyla Mae.

Robbie passed away early on Monday March 20th after a long, hard fought battle with cancer and associated side effects of chemotherapy treatments. He will always be remembered as a loud, happy, animated character whose stories are engraved in the memories of his closest family and friends. After working 40 plus years in construction and raising his son Russell, Robbie relished in his short lived retirement by spending time with his grandchildren. It was his infectious spirit that led him toward so many amazing people and experiences. Living in Lake Tahoe for 30 years, he invited so many people into his life as well as being invited into the lives of so many others. He will be greatly missed by family, friends, and the community.
