Benjamin Gary Brausen

December 27, 1950 — January 8, 2022

Benjamin Brausen, 71, passed away January 8, 2022 in Post Falls, ID surrounded by his family. He was born December 27, 1950 in Moscow, Idaho to Irene Lalor and Art Brausen. Ben graduated from Moscow High School in 1969. He was an Eagle Boy Scout and served as Den Chief for his brothers and many of his friends. One of his first jobs was working for his Dad and Uncle at A&J Furniture. He was an active member of DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) and became State President of Idaho during his Senior year. He received a scholarship to Boise State University and graduated in 1973 with a BA in Marketing. In 1969, he married Tammy Toler and to that union was born two wonderful children, Chad and Kelly. Ben and his wife Becky met in 1981, when they were both working in medical sales for Dover Urologicals. They married in 1982 and enjoyed 39 years together until his passing. In 2006, they welcomed their beautiful daughter, Amanda into their lives. They lived in Connecticut and New Jersey, but spent most of their family life in the Pacific Northwest. Most of his working career was in the Medical Sales Industry. He was a dedicated and highly motivated sales and marketing executive with a stellar record of achievements for over 40 years. He had a brilliant mind and was hard-working and passionate about all he did. Throughout his life he lent his talents to many companies including: G.D. Searle, C.R. Bard Inc., Hosposable Products Inc., First Quality Products Inc. and Presto Products Inc. In High School he owned a 1956 Chevy Nomad which began his lifelong passion for cars and antique car shows. He enjoyed woodworking and restoring furniture and could fix nearly anything. One of his favorite places to be was at their home on Priest Lake, Idaho. He often referred to it as a “little piece of heaven.” He loved spending time at the lake with his family. Over the years many fond memories were made around the campfire, fishing on the lake, tubing Amanda and her friends, and taking in the beauty of the lake. Ben could often be found relaxing on the deck with a cigar and a scotch. Ben is survived by his beloved wife Becky; daughters Kelly Brausen of Boise, ID and Amanda Brausen of Post Falls, ID; a son Chad (Danyelle) Brausen of Kansas City, MO; two grandchildren; brothers, Jim (Jane) Brausen of Priest Lake, Idaho, Bob (Joyce) Brausen of Spokane, Washington, and Pat Brausen of Richland, Washington; Sisters, Rosean Brausen of Moscow, Idaho and Maggie (Bob) Stovicek of Santa Maria, California; and many nieces and nephews.
