Brian Brimhall, 53, passed away on Thursday, July 11, 2013, at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Goodyear after a brief, but fierce battle with cancer. A memorial service was held July 16 at the Pioneer Park Chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Snowflake.
On Aug. 12, 1959, a little “Idaho Potato” was born to J LaRee and John Waldo Brimhall in Rupert, Idaho, during their two-year farming adventure away from Arizona. Brian Wynn Brimhall was the third boy and fifth child of this Brimhall clan.
Brian and his bride, Linda Lee Brimhall, made their home in Snowflake on their “Rohan Ranch,” where they lovingly raised horses, dogs and glorious sunrises.
Brian was adventurous, humorous and kind to his core. His interests included motorcycle riding and racing in his youth, fun with family, Native American art and in most recent years, he became an accomplished horseman.
His employment travels included satellite TV starting in Baton Rouge, La., and construction that took him from the Kwajalein Islands and throughout the Southwest. He was the face of AZ Digital Dish in Taylor for many years. His last employment was with the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office in Holbrook.
Besides beautiful Linda, Brian is survived by his son, Chad Wynn Brimhall, and daughter Courtney Brimhall, both of Apache Junction; and four stepchildren, Andrea Salmans and Michael Salmans (and three grandchildren) of California, and Christopher Harper and Stephanie Harper of Utah. Brian also leaves behind four lonesome siblings, Ginger (Glen) Ellison of Taylor, Dr. John Wayne (Brandy) Brimhall of Parker, Colo.; Sherida (Dan) Walker of Tehachapi, Calif.; and Keith Wade “Skeeter” (Debbie) Brimhall of Taylor.
Silver Creek Mortuary of Taylor was in charge of the arrangements.Brian Brimhall
