Obituary: Harold Donald “Don” Brigham Jr.

Harold Donald “Don” Brigham Jr

On Sunday March 20th 2022, the first day of Spring, Harold Donald “Don” Brigham Jr. peacefully slipped away in the arms of his loving wife, having been surrounded by his three loving children.

At age 55, Don was taken from us far to soon by the evil that is cancer.

Don loved life and had such a strong will to live. He put up a noble and valiant fight.

He worried about his family and didn’t want to leave them alone. He was always there for them, no matter what. The deep love he had for his family was his strength and reason for living.

Although his body failed him, His love and strength remains.

Don met his wife in 1995 where they both were van drivers for the railroad.

It was love at first sight (at least for her). They had a whirlwind romance and were married in June of 96.

Amy had two Daughters from a previous marriage, and he had a Son.

They legally adopted each other’s children and then in May of 97 their Son Donamy was born.

Don was loving and kind, gentle and generous, quiet and strong, He was thoughtful and passionate, a planner, an inventor and He was most proud of his licence as a Master Electrician.

He was a loving, devoted Husband, Father and Amppaw. He loved and was so proud of all his Children and Grandchildren.

He loved taking his Wife on adventures and looked forward to Family camping trips to the Bighorns every summer.

He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. He will be remembered fondly.
