He served in the Army, stationed in the United States and Korea.
He was a member of the Valley Fourth Church and American Legion.
His greatest joy was his family and traveling.
For the past 10 years he traveled with his wife seeing all he wanted to see.
He is survived by his wife Mary Frances Brauhn and his two brothers Chuck and Dale Brauhn, his sons Terry, Kelly, Troy Brauhn and David Gest, along with seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
He was a light to all our family that will be ever shining in our hearts.
A Memorial Service will be held at Valley Fourth Church, 2303 S. Bowdish Rd., Spokane Valley, WA at 1:00pm, on Thursday, January 24, 2013.
