Robert (Scott) Brower, a former Brookfield resident, died peacefully due to COVID-19 complications on April 13, 2020 in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, at 71.

Mr. Brower was born in Chicago on Aug. 12, 1948 to Shirley and Glen Brower. He graduated from Lyons Township High School in 1966 and studied music, art and philosophy at the University of Denver. 

He married Nancy Vickers on June 7, 1969 and had two daughters, Shawn Brower Holzman and Gena Brower Richardson.

Mr. Brower was a longtime resident of Brookfield, raising both of his daughters on Hollywood Avenue. He was very proud of both, having coached them in softball for the Brookfield National Little League. 

He was a passionate musician, having his own studio to create his music with some of his best friends, David Margheim, Jim Vlna and Dave Bruce. He owned his own advertising agency, RSB Communications, also located in Brookfield. 

His most recent place of residence was in Menomonee Falls, closer to both of his daughters Mr. Brower was a gentle giant at 6-foot-4, who was happy to let others shine. The Molnar cousins described him as the "epitome of cool." His daughters would describe him as someone who was always there for them, and someone who always made sure they knew he loved them.

He will be greatly missed by all whose lives he touched.

Mr. Brower was preceded in death by both his parents, Shirley and Glen Brower. He is survived by his children, Shawn (Mark) Holzman of Howards Grove, Wisconsin and Gena (Ryan) Richardson of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin; and his grandchildren, Ashton Holzman, Caleb Holzman, Jordan Richardson, Noah Richardson and Abbie Stigler.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions there will be no visitation at this time. The family will have a private celebration of life at a later date. 

The family has designated St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for memorial contributions and would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to all the doctors and nurses at Froedtert hospital for their care and compassion in caring for their father.
