ORANGEVILLE - Lenard Douglas Brown died at home peacefully, surrounded by his loving wife and family on Oct. 30, 2004.
Born Dec. 1, 1924 to John William and Minnie Hall Brown in Huntington. He married LaRee Sitterud Sept. 16, 1946 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.
Lenard dropped out of school to join the U.S. Marines in 1942. He served with the First Marine Parachute Regiment in the Solomon Islands and other South Pacific Islands. He then became part of the Fifth Marine Division where he was one of the first men to land on the island of Iwo Jima. He always took solemn pride in the knowledge that the 26th he served with had the dubious distinction of suffering the highest casualty rate of any American company (98 percent) since Pickett's charge in the Civil War. He was one of the few survivors of the 26th paratroops to leave the island 36 days later. He knew and served with every one of the men who raised the U.S. flag on Iwo Jima. He was proud to be one of those "Few Good Men."
He served as counselor and president of the elders quorum, Sunday School teacher and served in the presidency of three Sunday Schools.
He worked in various coal mines in Carbon and Emery counties and was a retired member of the United Mine Workers of America.
For nearly 30 years, he sold mining and construction equipment throughout the U.S. and parts of Canada and Mexico.
Lenard loved and enjoyed life and went out of his way to help others do the same. He had the ability to make others feel loved and appreciated. It was easy for him to say, "Thanks, I appreciated that."
Although there were many clouds in his life, he had that special trait to always see the silver lining.
He will be remembered for his wit and sense of humor and his reputation of fair play and honest dealings.
Lenard loved spending time with his family. They were his greatest source of pride and joy. He enjoyed traveling, reading and watching the Discovery, Learning and History channels on television.
Lenard always kept in touch with friends and family by letters and phone calls.
In his 70s, Lenard became proficient on the computer and his letters became more frequent and, with e-mail, more timely. He completed an extensive family history and stories covering four generations - a priceless treasure for his family, present and future.
