Daniel Morgan Brown-Brux

Juneau resident Daniel Morgan Brown-Brux died May 21, 2000, in his home.

He was born Nov. 27, 1963, in Bellingham, Wash., to Robert and Nina Brux and raised by his mother and his adoptive father Gerald Brown.

He graduated from North Salinas High School in California and attended Sheldon Jackson College in Sitka along with other colleges in California, Washington and Alaska.

After a river-diving accident at the age of 19, his life was challenged. His family said that once he recovered he looked for a home and found it in Juneau, a place he was loyal to and loved. He worked at various jobs in fisheries, logging, mines and casual labor. He was an all-weather lover of the outdoors.

He is survived by his mother Nina Brux and brother Rod of Seattle, brothers Ken, Bob, Troy and sister Tonya of California; grandparents Bill and Eileen Brux, Elizabeth Walter, Sue Brown; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousin and nephews.

A gathering of friends will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Heritage Coffee Co. Cafe in downtown Juneau.
