It's with a heavy heart that we have to say goodbye to Don Brouse- a Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Uncle, Friend and a Mentor to many. This man could have a gruff and grumpy exterior, but underneath was as gentle as a Teddy Bear. Don will be loved and missed by many as he joins his Mother and friends in another domain. Cheers to your new adventure.
Don was born on July 10th, 1943 in San Jose California to his parents Dorothy and Guy. He attended and graduated from San Jose City College in 1961. As an accomplished artist he decided to expand his abilities and open up the first Tattoo business (ASI) in Salt Lake City. In collaboration with his wife Sharon, a person that shared the same passion and interest as he did, they pursued this business venture together. They married April 1, 1977 and worked side by side from that point until present to build an established and premier tattoo business in the Salt Lake valley. Another passion Don possessed was for restoring antique vehicles - a craft he portrayed often around the valley with local car shows. Although, his business and antique car collection was full-filling, the real joy came from his love for his children and grandchildren.
They say there's a reason.
They say time will heal.
Neither time or reason will change the way I feel.
Gone are the days we used to share.
But in my heart you are always there.
The gates of memories will never close. I miss you more than anyone knows.
Till we meet again.
I love you papa.
Always and forever.
Preceded in death by parents Dorothy and Guy and sister Linda, 2 children Tasha and Michael and grandson Stone.
He is survived by 5 children, 21 grandchildren, and 14 great grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, January 29 at 6:00 pm at Goff Mortuary, 8090 S. State St., Midvale, with a viewing prior from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
