At 58 years young, Stuart Brown passed away at his home in Chanhassen on June 6th, 2020. Preceded in death by parents, Bruce and Peg Brown; and two brothers, Mark and Don Brown. Stuart was born and raised in Miles City, Montana where he spent much of his childhood and early adult life before moving to Minneapolis to start his career in engineering. After falling victim to Lung Cancer in 2016, Stuart became an active member in research and advocacy through A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation. He devoted himself to being a mentor to others with the disease, educating them and sharing advice on how to handle it both medically and personally. Stuart's greatest joy in life was his family; we all benefited from the love and role model behavior he graced us with. He was kind, compassionate, caring, intelligent, and humorous. Stuart loved to give those around him nicknames, which he would come up with on the fly. He loved a warm cup of coffee on the porch in the morning, and walking the dog with his wife. A lifelong Vikings fan, Stuart will be awaiting an overdue Super Bowl win from up above. Survived by his wife of 32 years, Tanya Brown; daughter, Mackenzie Brown; son, Mitch Brown; sister, Barbara Purdy; brother, Jim Brown (and wife Sara); sister-in-law's, Fidella and Connie Brown, along with many other relatives and friends. In lieu of flowers, donations to are appreciated. Funeral service Wednesday, June 17th 11am at St. Hubert's Catholic Church, 8201 Main St, Chanhassen.

I knew Stuart for almost 30 years. We had so much in common as we were both engineers, both worked at Fisher-Rosemount, both worked at Seagate Technology and both were never-smokers diagnosed with late stage lung cancer. I became aware of Stuart's diagnosis in 2016 when he sent me a LinkedIn message indicating that he had just met with a Minnesota Oncology doctor who described my case to him as they saw similarities between the two of us. I was shocked to learn that someone I knew, someone with the same healthy lifestyle I had was stricken with this horrible disease.

We shared many heartfelt conversations from that moment forward, patient to patient. Stuart would update me on his condition, what his treatment options were for the ROS1 mutation and would ask me questions about my medical past. I did my best to provide some hope for him and to share any knowledge that I had gained during my journey. I was always so impressed by how much Stuart knew about his situation and I could only recall how little I knew about what I was going through back in 2011. He never complained during any of our conversations and was a tremendous source of inspiration for me.

I will miss Stuart terribly and I still cannot believe what has happened. His passing is a huge loss for his family, friends, work colleagues and the lung cancer community. Stuart, you will never be forgotten and I will forever treasure the time we had to together and your impact on my life.

Stuart was not only a coworker and a good manager, he was a good friend. He was full of the joy of life and especially the joy of family. His life philosophy can be summed up by the saying on his wall; "Today is a good day." It was amazing to witness his strength walking through his illness that was an inspiration for anyone that knew him. He will be missed at Beckman and I will deeply miss our work and life conversations. Tanya, Mackenzie, Mitch, I am so sorry for your loss. God's peace on you all. -Tim Hoyt

Tanya, MacKenzie, and Mitch - my sincere condolences to you. Stuart had a great way of communicating his experiences in a humorous and authentic manner and will be greatly missed. He was an inspiration to me, with kids slightly younger, sharing his experiences being a father and reliving his memories. The ice cream story with Mitch was one of my favorites. I was lucky enough to witness the pinnacle of his golf career - a hole in one at the Chaska Town Course (yes it really happened!), as well as share in the misery of Vikings playoff losses on a Monday morning. Somehow everything was better with the world after talking to Stuart. Stuart talked often of his childhood growing up in Miles City, where riding your 20" bike with a rifle was common place and well accepted on your way to target practice. There are many others stories - too many to count! I will miss you Stuart, you built a great legacy.

Dear Tanya, we have never met in person, but Stuart has been working for me during my time in Brea between 2011 to 2015. I apologize upfront for my poor English in this kind of situation, since this is not my native language, especially in these kind of situations. But I want to tell you that Stuart has been a very honest, open and great person to work with. He looked at topics from all angles and was making up his mind and sticked to his decision, unless he realized that data or situations may have changed. I always enjoyed very much working with him.Especially his humour and attitude was something I really loved. Last week I was shocked by the news that he was not able to win this battle against the cancer. I wish you and your family the love and strength required to handle this difficult time without Stuart. With warmest regards, Christoph Moellers, Munich Germany.

It has been over a week since the news of his passing, but It is still hard to process that we won't see Stuart's smiling face in the office again. I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Stuart over the past twelve years. He was truly the definition of a good guy. Thoughtful, honest, conscientious, and best of all a highly logical, talented engineer. We had many conversations over the years about how the problems of our company or the world at large could be solved, if only everyone else could recognize the logical answer. There were many good times as well. I remember our first trip together to Japan to kick-off a new project. We all had to sing karaoke, and Stuart graced our new colleagues with a fine rendition of a Guns-N-Roses song. Stuart was a model for all of us the past four years. The composure. leadership, and positive attitude he maintained was amazing to watch. I will miss him greatly.
