- Published: January 19, 2017
Skip was born April 24, 1972, in Springfield. He was the son of Larry and Lisa Brown and grandson of Elaine Brown and late grandfather William H. “Bill” Brown, all of Yellow Springs. He was the brother of David Brown and his wife, Bobbi; Dawn Brown and Danylle Brown, all of Xenia. He was an amazing uncle to Amanda, Kayla and LizziBeth Brown. He is also survived by his Aunt Jackie, of Portland, Ore.; Uncles Curt and Chris, of Yellow Springs; his beloved cats, Ash, Simba and Tigger; and other extended family and friends.
Skip attended Yellow Springs High School. He was the owner of the Legendary Roofing Company and was the project manager and owner of the Bahnsen Gallery. Skip’s interests included his appreciation for art and collectibles, including his great-grandfather Axel Bahnsen’s work in photography. He was also developing a vast appreciation for nature, including the difference between weeds and flowers. His smile and “no worries” outlook will be missed by many.
