Naasson Aran Brown, 63, of Ontario, Wis., was called home to be with the Creator on the 17th of June 2024, while tending to his beloved land in Ontario, Wis. Naasson left this world doing what he cherished most, farming on his hobby farm. Naasson was born September 21, 1960, in Waterloo, Iowa, to Paul and Rose (Arends) Brown and was raised in Dysart, Iowa.

In April of 1974, he heard the Gospel preached and trusted Christ as his Savior. He graduated from Dysart High School in 1979. Soon after graduation, he decided to become an over-the-road truck driver and bought his own truck and trailer. He hauled grain out of Iowa for many years.

In 1993, through mutual friends, he met his soulmate, Peggy Rueckheim. They married on Oct. 9, 1993, in Ontario. Naasson was known to many as a gentle giant with a kind heart and faith-filled soul. Naasson’s love for his family was as boundless as the heavens, and his devotion to his wife Peggy and their children Lydia, Andrew, Samuel, and Chloe was the very essence of his being.

Naasson worked for a several trucking companies where he would be on the road for many days or weeks at a time. He made the decision that he was missing out on his family time too much. He decided to work closer to home and took a job with Martin’s Trucking in Wilton, where he worked for 18 years. A few years before he retired, Naasson worked for K&K Cheese in Cashton, and retired in 2020.

Naasson is survived by his loving wife, Peggy; his children, Lydia Brown (Brian Rhea) of Tomah, Andrew Brown of Ontario, Samuel Brown (Micayla Hanson) of Beatrice, Neb., and Chloe (Darrick) Hendricks of Ontario; his brothers- and sisters-in-law, Roy (Dana) Rueckheim of Ontario, Linda (Bob) Rae of Wilton, Mike (Erica) Rueckheim of Ontario, Amy (Dave) Gruber of Ontario, Barb (Kenneth) Witt of Kendall, Tom (Erin) Rueckheim of Wilton, Matt (Laura) Rueckheim of Hillsboro, Jacob Rueckheim of Wausau, Chad (Keri) Rueckheim of Cashton, and Sarah (Trevor) McDonnell of Maiden Rock; along with other relatives and dear friends.

Naasson was preceded in death by his daughter, Rebekah Brown; his parents, Paul and Rose Brown; his mother-in-law, Marcia Rueckheim; and his sister-in-law, Rita Hammond.

Funeral services were Saturday, June 22, at the Torkelson Funeral Home, 720 Madison St, Ontario. Speaker Kent Hendrickson presided. Burial followed in the Cal Day Cemetery, rural Ontario. Family and friends were invited for visitation Saturday at the funeral home.
