The service is open to the public, and the community is encouraged to attend.

Brown, who passed away at his home on Sept. 14 at the age of 85, set the bar for perfection in mountain operations through more than 25 years of service as mountain manager for Vail Mountain.

Advances in mountain operations under Brown's supervision, including trail maintenance and snowmaking, have made Vail the premier destination it is today.
