Douglas Reed Brown
Age 57, passed away Sunday, March 24, 2013. Doug was born May 24, 1955, in Bakersfield, CA. Of Stanley and Wanda Malone's four children, he was the second oldest. When he was 12, Doug and his family moved to Upland, CA where he attended Pioneer Jr. High and Upland High School. When he was 16, he met the love of his life, Barbara Meyer. They eventually reunited and married in 1999.
One of Doug's greatest joys in life was cars. He worked for local events sponsored by NHRA and he loved working the races at the California Speedway. In 2002, Doug and Barb adopted their beloved border collie, Kaylie.
Doug was preceded in death by Stanley Malone, and Thomas Brown. He is survived by his wife Barbara, and their two children Julie Balcom (son-in-law Ken, grandchildren Hayden and Liam) and Steven Ballinger (daughter-in-law Reynisha, and granddaughter Phoenix).
