Dean Brower, 51
Died: September 12, 2008
He was a true believer. If he had survived this accident and had no legs . . . he would have wheeled himself onto the train.
— Kim Brower, wife, on her husband's dedication to Metrolink
Brower, a father of three children with disabilities, owned Pulse Drumming with his wife, Kim. They started the Ventura business, which teaches dance and percussion, so they could work together. In 2005, Brower was riding a Metrolink train to work and got off right before it collided with a sport utility vehicle near Glendale, hit another train and derailed, killing 11 people. A "Celebration of Life Party" will be held Sept. 28, 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Arnaz Program Center, 155 Sulphur Mountain Road, Ventura.
Keep in mind
- The Times initially mispelled the name of Michael Hammersley and Beverly Mosley.
- The coroner's office reported a 26th victim the afternoon of Sept. 15, but a few hours later said the tally was 25.
