Larry Allen Brown left this world in a hurry December 17, 2021. He battled various medical issues for years and with each terminal diagnosis he prevailed and bravely continued on. He had been saying for years “all I want is one day pain free” so he saw his chance, took it and he took it head on, like he had always lived his life.
Born in Tucson, AZ, he learned to work hard at a very young age and accomplished many things including becoming an eagle scout. He loved his faith, set a wonderful example for all, and knew God was at his side for life. He served an honorable LDS mission in Western New York where he met the love of his life Kelli, who he married in the Mesa Arizona temple. They raised 4 amazing children and have 7 fabulous grandchildren, who he adored to infinity.
He was very talented and built custom luxury homes and sprawling luxury horse facilities. After 9/11, he switched careers and became a manager for TSA at Phoenix Sky Harbor airport which was probably his most satisfying job. He loved people and would talk to everyone he met asking them about their travels. He was a natural born leader, often taking charge, giving orders and advocating for his team. As a result, his team members would seek out his advice and guidance.
He loved to travel, saw a lot of the world and showered his family with incredible gifts from abroad. Nobody was better at haggling, especially for cars, and he excelled at getting his meals comped and back seat driving.
There will be a celebration of life for Larry on January 15, 2021 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at 20637 E San Tan Blvd, Queen Creek, AZ 85142. Attendees can come and go as they want during that time. The family is eager to see all those who knew and loved Larry. He has been cremated and will be taken to an exotic locale and left there by his immediate family – lucky guy!
In lieu of flowers, Larry would love it if you donated to your favorite charity.
