Douglas E. Brauer, of Safford, entered into rest Tuesday, September 21, 2021, at the Haven of Safford. He was 69.
Doug lived simply and with great courage. He was independent in spite of the limitations Muscular Dystrophy had on his body. A dear man, loved one, friend and teacher who had respect for all.
He was an intellectual man who had a childlike curiosity of the world. Doug was very ingenious and resourceful in accomplishing what he wanted and needed. He built his own hand controls for driving from old bicycle parts.
He was an incredibly talented artist using mainly charcoal and pastels. Some things he really enjoyed are Pepsi, homemade Mexican food, calzones, oatmeal cookies (home made), fast cars and watching NASCAR races.
Please take a moment to reflect on your memories and the special person he was. Share your stories and keep his memory alive in your heart.
We will miss you dear one. May the Great Spirit be with you on your final Journey! Rest in Peace! "Watch your top knot."
Memorial Graveside Services for Doug will be conducted Thursday, October 21, 2021, in the Littleton Cemetery in Littleton, Colorado. He will be laid to rest next to his father.
