BSBD Dave Brown

Written by Kolla

After many weeks of searching, the body of well-known skydiver Dave Brown has been located. Below is a message from Dave’s family: “Our family confirms the finding of the remains of our son, brother, cousin, and nephew in Moab. We are devastated by our loss of such a gifted young man. Special thanks to Moab’s Chief of Police, Mike Navarre, and his staff for their tending to us and Dave as a missing person. We also thank the volunteers at Rocky Mountain Rescue Dogs, Dave’s many friends far and wide, and Ryan Shaw and his students at Paradrenalin for their extraordinary efforts in searching for Dave. Dave’s loved ones had not heard from him since June 29. On October 23 a hiker found remains in the mountains surrounding Moab. On October 26 Chief Mike confirmed that the remains belong to Dave. We treasure the concern and best wishes of so many young people that were touched by Dave’s smile and sense of adventure. Private family funeral arrangements are in process. Please respect our need to grieve our loss within our immediate family. Blue skies, Dave. You are so loved and your incredible zest for life will be missed.” Dave Brown was one of a kind for sure. His memory is certain to live on in the stories we tell around the campfire for a long time to come.

  • My deepest sympathy goes out to all of Dave’s family and friends. Although I only met him once and never got his name, he made an impact on me & I often wondered about him. I met him on the day I took my first AFF jump course. He kept popping into the room and we talked about how rad my matte black Pro Tec helmet was. He will be greatly missed. Blue ones Dave.
