William “Bill” A. Brown Jr, 73, of Sacramento, formerly of Helena, Montana, died peacefully while visiting his children in New Jersey on Friday, Aug. 12, 2016. Bill was born and raised in Helena, Montana, son of the late William A. and Margaret Brown. He was a graduate of the University of Montana, was employed by the State of California, and a proud veteran, serving in the U.S. Navy until being honorably discharged in 1963. He is survived by his children, Julie Dalbec and her husband Jake of Massachusetts, Todd Brown and his wife Jill of New Jersey. He also leaves his brother, James Brown and his wife Laura of Montana; his four loving grandchildren, Nathan Dalbec, Samantha Dalbec, Addison Brown and Greyson Brown whom he deeply loved; along with several nieces and nephews. He was the brother of the late Cordelia Slater of Montana. Bill had many interests in his life, including doing historical re-enactments at his mountain man rendezvous’ and Sutter’s Fort, traveling in his motorhome, and spending time in his tin shop as a Tinsmith. He enjoyed reading and watching car races in his spare time. He was a proud member of the 20-30 Club in Sacramento, the Bachelor’s Club, and the American River Muzzleloaders group. He also spent many years volunteering his time with the Sacramento Zoo and FairyTale Town on their Board of Directors. His true passion in his life was his family and he always looked forward to spending time with them especially at the beach, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and at Christmas time. He will always be fondly remembered as a kind, understanding, caring, ‘stop-and-help-anyone-at anytime’ father, grandfather, brother, and friend. For all who loved and knew him, his unique easy going and loving personality will be forever cherished and missed.
