Dannie Browne

Dannie passed away on June 23, at age 64, of lung cancer. When he was eight, Dannie moved with his parents, Fred and Jean Browne, and his seven siblings, to Luana Beach on Vashon Island. Dannie was always active, in the water and on the beach, and in organized sports. His Little League team always placed first or near first during years he played. He would continue playing sports at Vashon High School, in both basketball and football. Dannie’s love of sports continued as he watched the Mariners, Seahawks, and former Seattle Sonics games. He worked at K2, Todd Shipyards, and Boeing, until he began to struggle with mental health. We will always remember Dannie’s sense of humor, his charm, and his big heart which drew people to him.

Dannie is predeceased by his parents, and brothers Greg and Chris. He is survived by brother Mac (Vashon), sisters Terry (Palm Desert, California), Vicki (Carbondale, Colorado), Wende and Dannie’s twin sister, Debbie (Vashon), and many nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank those in the Vashon community who were kind to Dannie, including the gang at Sporty’s, Providence Hospice, Tom and Dave at Vashon Pharmacy, Rick and Debi at Vashon Manor, and special thanks to Debra Reischl at VYFS for her kindness and social work on Dannie’s behalf.

A celebration of Dannie’s life will be held at Sporty’s

on Saturday, June 30, at 4:00 PM.
