Dale Audrain Dorn
Dec. 31, 1922 - August 27, 2010
Dale Audrain Dorn died peacefully on August 27, 2010. Dale was born December 31, 1922, to George Mark Dorn and Bertha Leota Audrain in Redmond, Oregon. He preceded his twin brother, Gale, by about 40 minutes resulting in the twins being born in different years.
The twins joined their older brother, Ed, and sisters, Irene and Doris on the homestead in Terrebonne, Oregon. Dale was raised in Terrebonne and Redmond and graduated from Redmond High School in 1941. In high school, Dale and Gale were to form friendships with classmates that were to last them their entire lives. Dale joined the Aviation Cadet program in 1942, and finally was inducted in the Army Air Corps in 1943. He was a ball turret gunner on a B-24 Liberator and was stationed in Italy during the war. Dale returned to Oregon in March of 1946, and on September 4, 1946, he married Kathleen Angland.
Dale and Kathleen settled in Salem in 1947, and proceeded to raise five children. Kathleen died in 1998. Dale loved his family. Spending time with his kids, grandkids and extended family was his great delight. He was a very loyal person and enjoyed his friends as well. Many will miss his birthday cards or calls.
Dale and Gale founded what would soon become Dorn Brothers Truck and Auto in Salem in 1947. At one time they were located in Salem, Eugene, Prineville, Madras and Redmond. The business still exists in the family today.
Dale was involved in various organizations over the years. He was a past president of the Oregon Independent Automobile Dealers Association and a past president of Junior Chamber of Commerce. He was involved with the Salem Leaders, a group of young business people involved in making Salem a better place to live and do business.
Dale loved his work, buying and selling used trucks and cars. He enjoyed traveling the country buying vehicles for resale and meeting new people. He also enjoyed hunting and camping.
Dale is survived by his twin brother, Gale, his daughter, Sue (Jeff); sons, Dan (Laura), Mike (Kim), John (Debbi); his special friend, Iradell; and his grandchildren, Jacob, Katie, Riley, Kory, Cooper and Carter. His son, Steve, and grandson, McKenzie, preceded him in death along with his older brother and sisters.
A celebration of Dale's life will be held on Thursday, September 2, 2010, at 10:30 am at City View Funeral Home, 390 Hoyt St. S., Salem, Oregon. The family asks, in lieu of flowers, that a donation be made to Willamette Valley Hospice, or a charity of your choice.

Judge Clarke C. Brown, Sr.
June 11, 1921 – August 1, 2010

Clarke C. Brown was born on June 11, 1921 to Ingram and Ethel (Cutler) Brown of Clatskanie, Oregon, where he was raised and attended grade school and high school.
He was a four-year letterman in basketball, football and track. In his senior year, he was selected on the League All-Star team in basketball. He later attended the University of Oregon and joined the U.S. Naval Reserve on January 15, 1941. He served in the South Pacific and was released from active duty on September 30, 1945.
Judge Brown was recalled to active duty where he was assigned duty on USS Orleck (DD886) during the Korean affair and in Naval Intelligence with the staff of the 17th Naval Commandant.
Prior to his recall, he graduated from Willamette University with a B.S. degree and Willamette College of Law in 1948 with a Doctor of Jurisprudence Degree. Brown was the senior partner in the law firm of Brown, Schlegel, Bennett and Milbank in Salem, which later grew into an eight-person firm. Judge Brown was appointed to the Circuit Court Bench in Marion County and retired in 1987. In Salem he served on numerous boards andcommittees. He was also a Director of Illahe Hills Country Club. Upon his retirement, he and his wife, Virginia J. Brown, (deceased 2006), lived in Chapala, Mexico for eight years prior to their moving to Redmond in 1991.
Judge Brown is survived by two daughters, Gail E. DuBois (Edward), Corvallis, Oregon and Jennifer E. Welborn (John), Salem, Oregon. He is also survived by three stepchildren, Garfield McFadyen, Ottowa, Canada;
Kathleen Cooke, Oregon City; and Marsha L. Bailey (Jack) Walla Walla, Washington. He is also survived by 10 grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
Judge Brown was a life-long member of the Presbyterian Church in Clatskanie, Salem and Redmond. He was both an active and honorary member of Juniper Golf Club, including serving as president of the club.
Judge and Mrs. Brown were active supporters of St. Jude’s Hospital for children among many other philanthropic groups.
Judge Brown was also noted for quietly helping people who were down in their luck and for his undying love for his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He enjoyed his golf, was a better than average fly-fisherman and considered himself one of the luckiest and most devoted persons for having his family and friends. He was known as
a “tough” judge but friendly, kind and considerate. He was a gentleman of the “old school.”
He was appreciative of his neighbors, Christy and Ron Totorica, and their daughters, (whom he considered as grandkids), Hallie and Amaia; Mary and Lew Palmer, Jan and Doug Ayles and all who were of great assistance
to him when his abilities started to fade.
Judge Brown considered his physician, Dr. Mark Sternfeld, as not only a doctor but a friend. He was also grateful to Dr. E. Young as well as Dr. Keith Sides of Cinder Rock Veterinary Clinic who kept his close companion “Bo” (a beautiful golden retriever) fit. “Bo” slept nowhere but beside the Judge. Both the Judge and “Bo” had a true and mutual love for each other.
Judge Brown was still in love with his deceased wife, Virginia, until the day of his death.
Judge Brown was proceeded in death by his parents and only sibling, Lamont Brown, all of Clatskanie.
At his request, no services will be held.
