MY FAMILY . . .
THE BROWN FAMILY
One for All and All for One
HOUSE & HOME
A house is built of logs and stone,
Of tiles and posts and piers;
A home is built of loving deeds
That stand a thousand years.
- Victor Hugo
DAD - is an electronics engineer who served two US
Presidents as advisor for Air Force One communication systems. He has been around the
world four times as a satellite communications specialist, and I'm sure
these boys get
their sense of adventure from him. He has also traveled extensively throughout the
United States and in foreign countries. He is a published technical writer and
component engineer. His last job before retirement was as an operations analyst
for a worldwide corporation. His hobbies are ham radio (Extra Class - AA4DY) and "snoozing."
This family of ours would not be where we are today without the love and guidance of
our Mr. Brown.
MOM - is
a retired church administrative assistant/beauty salon owner and instructor.
She is also
the Webmaster for this website as well as others. She has published
an article in a Ham Radio publication called CQ
Magazine, and she also holds a ham radio license (General
Class - N4KQI). Her hobbies are all computer-related and she keeps busy
maintaining two homes, one in Indiana and
one in Florida.
COOPER - is
a registered nurse and also holds a degree in business finance. He is
currently working freelance. He is active in many sports (his favorite
being boxing), golfing, tennis, water-skiing
and maintains a regular schedule at the gym and running on the beach. He
has an active lifestyle yet he always manages somehow to get back home
around the holidays to visit. Also, anywhere you find the
"women" you will probably find Coop right smack in the middle of the
group. He is a "babe magnet" that never seems to be without female
BIG BIZ - is EVERYWHERE all
at once. He has so many business interests and is so active that
we can't even
begin to list them all here. "Big B" is currently in Kuwait
working as a security analyst and we have to do all our communicating via
Skype and/or telephone. Besides
having a very successful career, and being a ham radio operator (Extra
Class - AA4DW), and being one of
the best professional deejays in the country, he always manages to somehow find time for
his family and of course to "take care of business."
is the youngest son and is always busy
climbing his way to the top. He is even a bigger wrestling fan than his Grandpa was. They
started watching wrestling together when Nic was just a little boy and too small to
understand what wrestling was all about. He also has a very successful - not to
mention "stressful" - career in the professional world as a
cinematographer. Nic also keeps a full-time job with Apple as a creative
is our "Love Sponge" baby. He is almost 13-years-old but still runs like
a puppy. We are all C-R-A-Z-Y over this dog, who almost seems "human" to
us. He understands every word spoken and we hardly ever have to repeat a
request that he's not right on it. His entire name is Brownie "Peanut
Butter" Brown as his favorite food of all time is peanut butter.
When we look at Brownie we look at pure love and devotion. We couldn't
ask for a better family member.
