Harry Brown was born September 20, 1932 to Harry Edward Brown, Sr. and Pansy Garrett Brown in Mosca, Colorado. [1] Shortly after he turned 3, his mother died. He had six older siblings, and one younger sister.[1] His family nickname was "Bub", it differentiated him from his father, Harry. For a time, he and his one year old sister, Barbara, were sent to live with nearby aunts and uncles. Harry went to live with Uncle Cy and Aunt Mollie. He also spent some time with Aunt May. As he got a little older, he returned to the family farm. [2] His Aunt Mollie died in 1938. [1]

Harry Brown grew up on the farm. He said he thought his father's favorite time of life were the years working in the fields using horses or mules to pull the plow. [3] He worked on a 640 acre grain farm. He plowed, sowed, and cultivated such crops as wheat, oats, barley and hay using tractors, hay baler, binder, and threshing machine. Chores such as milking and feeding cows and sheep were regular. He occasionally repaired the tractor, helped on the grain binder, and repaired fences and farm buildings. [4]

Harry Brown enlisted in the Navy and requested the SeaBees. He went by bus to Denver, and then by train to San Diego at the U.S. Naval Training Center. Boot camp was hard, it was 12 weeks. [5]

Harry Brown passed away in 2013. [6]
