Ian Brown

Born
Died

I miss everything about Ian. He was full of life until Heroin took it away and broke him down and made him forget the beautiful boy he once was.

Tell us about your loved one.

Ian was so loved . He was kind and had a beautiful aura that made you like him instantly. He was beautiful and funny and a gifted athlete. He loved his family and we loved him so very much. He had a heart for God. He loved his little sister Courtney, aka "Little Buddy". He loved to surf and play his guitar. He was patient and sweet with little kids.

Tell us about Ian's struggle with addiction

Oops I did these questions backwards.... The things that made Ian smile.... The ocean and surfing! Hunting with his dad, eating pancakes with whipped cream! His family ... He hugged us and told us he loves us every time he walked in the house.

What made Ian smile?

Ian experimented with drugs for "no real reason" he was just being stupid with his friends. He thought that smoking heroin was no big "leap" from smoking weed. He soon realized it was the stupidest choice he had ever made. He admitted his addiction to us at 18 and asked for help. The next 3 years was a series of rehabs and relapses. Each time he relapsed he became more filled with despair and lost confidence that he could ever stay sober. When he died, he was in his 4th rehab program and hadn't use for almost 4 months.
