We are so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was a good friend and neighbor in Bensenville. Our kids grew up together. Chris loved going to the hardware store with him! Even though we moved far away we have thought of you often. You are all in our prayers. Love, Karen & Chuck Boehm & family

To the Bill Brown Family: We are so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. We all have such fond memories of Bill since I first met him at Driscoll HS. He was My older brother Craig’s best friend all through HS and after HS when they both became professional custom builders. I will always cherish Bill’s calm friendly demeanor and his wonderful caring personality. He will truly be missed but know he and Craig are back together playing basketball, swinging hammers and drinking a beer ! He will be missed and the world is a smaller place with out him in it!

Bill It all started with meeting on the golf course then business partners, landlord and of course great friend. I'll never forget when you left our company to go to the school district I was more worried about us not golfing every day. And when you called Dr May and said you had a turf management course to take then a spherical impact study Dr May said I'll be right down. When he turned the corner and saw me in your office he said oh you guys are going golfing. Bill rest in peace my friend and hit that hole in one.

I had the honor to work with bill for many years. He taught me alot, not just about construction but life. He was a dear friend to me and my dad and we will both miss him very much. I would always tell him you live to work and I work to live, it was the truth there was no place he would rather be than on the job creating beautiful woodwork and solving problems. Every time I reach for my hammer in my pouch I will think of you bill. Rest in peace, Ken jr
