West Valley High School
Class Of 1964
LARRY MYRON BROWN
October 27, 1946 to June 20, 2015
On June 20th, 2015 Larry Myron Brown passed away peacefully in his sleep in Spokane, Washington.
Many classmates remember Larry in his role as reunion organizer for many years. In addition to his generous support of class reunions, Larry led a full, productive life in business and community.
Larry spent his life surrounded by friends and family, traveling the globe and making incredible memories. Larry served in the Navy. He was also a loud and proud voice in the gay community.
Larry is survived by his twin sister, Judy Atkisson (Ron), nephew, Dale Atkisson, niece, Lenaya Wilhelm (Bill), great niece, Christina Salguero (Geovani), great nephews, Shawn Meredith and Drew Atkisson, lifelong friend Steve Rodenbough (Marshall), his Johnstone Supply family, and friend, Leonard Jenkins-Ellsworth (Mike). A special thanks to Michael Winters, who lovingly cared for Larry for the last six years and has become another member of our family. Larry is preceded in death by his mother, Geneive and father, Willis.
To honor Larry's wishes and his love of throwing parties there will be a Hawaiian-themed Celebration of Life at the Davenport in the Marie Antoinette ballroom on Saturday, June 27th from 4:00-7:00 pm.
Due to Hoop Fest, parking will be limited around the Davenport. A shuttle will be provided back and forth from Johnstone Supply at 1212 E Front St from 3:00-8:00 pm
In lieu of flowers please send donations to Spokane AIDS Network.

Sadly, health or family concerns kept some classmates from joining us for the 50th reunion. This website is a wonderful way of staying in touch or catching up. We hope you will take a few minutes to add some photos or a short video to your profile, along with a short life history. We know that others will enjoy seeing what you've been doing these past years. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
