William Arthur Brown

December 7, 1936 – August 11, 2020
Age 83 of Bloomington. Born to Mary (Delores) and Elmer James, William (Bill) Brown was born at home in Greeley County, Nebraska. He grew up with his sister Jean (Arlo) Olson, from Nebraska. Bill spent many years as a loyal John Deere employee and always wore the ring to prove it. His career started in Omaha, Nebraska, and led him to Bloomington, Minnesota where he raised his two kids, Colin (Lynne) and Julie. Bill had two grandchildren, Gracee and Mary, who he adored. He was known for his willingness to help and support his family and friends, as well as his John Deere memorabilia. He will be missed. (Published in the Star Tribune on August 16, 2020)
