Obituary for William Dorsey "Bill "Boom Boom"" Brown

William Dorsey "Bill "Boom Boom""  Brown
Brown, William D. "Bill" "Boom Boom" It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Bill "Boom Boom" Brown, age 80, of Mpls. on November 4, 2018. Preceded in death by his beloved wife, Karen "Kay" Brown, and loving parents, Elmer "Bo" and Marion Brown. Survived by wife, Darlene Brown; his children with Kay: Scott (Donna) Brown, Shelley (Rich) Gannon, Kimberly (Rachel) Brown, Mick (Eryn) Brown, and 5 amazing grandchildren; Billy, Alexis, Eric, Danielle, and Belle; and siblings Barbara O'Leary, Betty Phalen, Joyce Hoffman, and James (Judy) Brown. Bill was a running back in the NFL for 14 seasons; 13 as a proud Minnesota Viking; played in 3 Super Bowls and 4 Pro Bowls; and in 2004 he was inducted into the Ring of Honor. Bill holds many Vikings team records including most games played by a running back. Kind, humble, hard-working: only a few of Bill's qualities that he has passed on to those who loved him. Bill was known for his toughness, talent, and his love for the game but his career accomplishments pale in comparison to the love for his family. Beneath that supposed rough exterior was a teddy bear that readily made others laugh. NO ONE disliked Bill Brown. Bill was an avid animal and wildlife lover. He often lent his celebrity to benefit charitable causes. He loved everything Elvis and unending rounds of cribbage and solitaire. Diagnosed with dementia (likely from repetitive football concussions), Bill fought with a fighter's spirit up until the very end. He chose to donate his brain to science for CTE research in the prevention of chronic traumatic brain injury. Bill had a huge heart and he will be missed, loved, and never forgotten. Mass of Christian Burial Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 11 AM at St. Hubert Catholic Church, 8201 Main St, Chanhassen (952-934-9106). Visitation will also be Tuesday beginning at 9:30 am also at St. Hubert Catholic Church. Reception will follow the service. Interment St. Hubert Catholic Cemetery, Chanhassen. The family would like to thank the entire staff of English Rose Suites for their dedicated and loving care of Bill. Memorials preferred to Boston University Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Center (Memo: CTE Neuropathology Fund), Attn: Elizabeth Fay, 72 E.
