Paul Wendell Brown was born on July 1, 1933, in Inwood, Iowa to Ralph and Blanche (Syverud) Brown. He was baptized and confirmed in Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Inwood. Paul grew up on a farm southwest of Inwood. He attended rural grade school and graduated from Inwood High School in 1951. After graduation, he stayed home and helped out on the farm. In 1952, he attended Augustana College for one year then served in the South Dakota Air Force National Guard for three years.

Paul married Evelyn Johnson of Canton, South Dakota on June 30, 1956. They made their home southwest of Inwood on the Henry Ranschau farm. To this union three children were born: David, DeAnn, and Dennis. Paul enjoyed coon hunting, fishing, playing cards, and attending all of his children’s, grandchildren’s, and great-grandchildren’s sporting events and activities. Paul and Evelyn moved into Inwood in 1995. He enjoyed Sunday night cards with family and was a great help out at the farm when needed. In 2005, they went to Texas for the winter and spent the next 10 winters there.

Grateful for sharing his life is his son, David (Deloris) Brown of Inwood, Iowa, daughter, DeAnn (Bob) Herting of Brandon, South Dakota, son, Dennis (Connie) Brown of Inwood; eight grandchildren; and eighteen great grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by wife, Evelyn; parents, Ralph and Blanche; and his grandparents.

The loss of "Dad" Brown makes me so sad. He and ma had so many great times with my parents. All the card playing and square dancing. Then all the breakfast at the house. So many great memories. Janel (Short) Kaltenbach Nov 9 2021 10:09 AM

So sorry to hear of the loss of Paul. Was so glad my sister and I were able to bring Dad down last year to visit. And so glad I was able to visit with Paul in June. He will be missed.
