In memory of
Ambrose Bernard Brown
Ambrose Bernard Brown Ambrose Bernard Brown, 92, passed away at Lakeview Health Center Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2020, where he was compassionately cared for since July 2020, while living with dementia. Ambrose was born Sept. 14, 1928, to Anna (McCabe) and Henry Brown. Growing up on the family farm instilled an incredible work ethic; he embraced hard work. He may have coined the phrase, "if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!" Ambrose graduated from Holmen High School, worked at Trane Company, before being drafted into the Army. He was stationed in Greenland, during the Korean War. Ambrose married Aurelia "Rail" Bechen in 1952; they later divorced. He married Carol Bushaw, in 1974. Following his time in the Army, he worked at Trane Company for many years, until changing careers and becoming a truck driver for Niedfeldt Trucking, retiring in 1993. Ambrose loved the great outdoors and sharing those experiences with family and friends. He was an active guy for the majority of his life; hunting, fishing, boating, water-skiing, and later in his life, taking his pontoon out on the Mississippi. Carol and Ambrose enjoyed countless rounds of golf together and boating to dinner along the Mississippi. Ambrose took up golf seriously after retirement, becoming a snowbird in Pharr, Texas, to pursue the game and camaraderie. Highlights of his golf game include a hole-in-one on a par 4 (the fifth hole at Seven Oaks in Mc Allen, Texas) Feb. 1, 1999. He had a unique driving style on the tee; easily recognizable as self-taught and effective. Ambrose enjoyed gardening, riding his motorcycle with friends, practical jokes, carpentry and woodworking. He was exceptionally handy. Ambrose made things to last and they have heft! He built his first home, bed sets for his kids, and would often be called upon (and was eager) to make cabinets and play-sets for family and friends. He designed and built according to wishes, and getting the maximum use of board length. He made dressers for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Ambrose began making a wooden-slatted canoe in the early 70s; the project was side-lined for over 40 years, until his son, Andrew, renewed interest and they completed this beautiful craft for both sailing and canoeing. Ambrose enjoyed the meticulous work he put into the inlaid wooden piece clocks, lazy-susan's and napkin holders he made for family and friends. Ambrose was thrilled to take part in the Freedom Honor Flight in May 2014; the recognition alone was so special, he immensely enjoyed the royal treatment which continued with gifts of handmade quilts, which he treasured. Ambrose loved to play cards and tell stories, sometimes at the same time. A card game was always a part of the many gatherings he enjoyed. Ambrose's siblings, in-laws, cousins, and friends, were a large part of Ambrose's life, finding time to visit was a priority. He was the first to see and meet a need and ALWAYS showed up. You could count on him. Ambrose is survived by his wife, Carol; children, Judy (Ed) Paul, Joni (Ralph) Heath, Amy (Aaron) Denstad and Andrew (Valerie Thompson); grandchildren, Jeffery (Sarah) Rupple, Jamie (Jordyn) Rupple, Analee (Chris) Leach, Natalie (John) Trevino, and Avery (Hannah) Denstad; great-grandchildren, Johanna and Josephine Rupple, Cameron and Leona Rupple, Sydney Leach, Jonah and Ellie Trevino; sister, Marie (Leo) Dummer; and brother, Francis (Dolores) Brown; and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents; brother and sister-in-law, Paul and Barbara; and sisters and brothers-in-law, Maybelle and Marvin Haas and Kathryn and Ged Malin. The family would like to express their gratitude to the dedicated staff at Lakeview for their care. Ambrose's celebration of life will be scheduled and announced at a later date. The Dickinson Family Funeral Home & Crematory is assisting the family with arrangements. Online Condolences may be shared with the family at www.dickinsonfuneralhomes.com .
