Daniel "Danny" Brown

February 7, 1966 ~ February 7, 2018 (age 52)

How fitting it is that the circle of life should end and we return to our maker on the day we are born. Danny Brown left his Earthly home on Feb. 7th, his birthday, to reunite with his celestial family.


Danny was born in Canada to Estelle May Brown, and raised in Brisbane, Australia and leaves behind many cherished family and friends there. He is preceded in death by his mother Estelle whom he loved dearly.


He is survived by his wife, Michelle Ricker; sister, Tina and Scott Ashdown of Brisbane, Australia;  his brother and sister-in-law, Greg and Leslie Ricker; his two nieces, Melissa and Sarah Ricker, and mother-in-law, Sharon Ricker.


Danny was a local business owner with a wonderful reputation of dedication and quality work!  He was passionate about everything he did, including his love for the safety and welfare of all animals.


A party to celebrate Danny's life will be held February 18th at Walnut Creek Country Club from 1:30 to 3:30.


In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Organization. Danny loved Cattle dogs for their fierce loyalty, hard work, and superior intellect. There is no greater way to honor his memory than to save another living being. ACDRA.org
