Richard Clayton (Dick) and Cecile Ann (Montminy) Brown

 

Richard Clayton (Dick) Brown born March 25, 1934, died October 26, 2017.

Dick had many passions in life.  He was dedicated to his work whether it was his service in the U.S. Army or his many years of service in the Social Security Administration.  More importantly though, he was passionate about family — his family.  His hobby was genealogy and he thrived on growing the family tree, expanding the branches and leaves with research spanning decades of his life.  He was a true family man with the utmost integrity and honesty.  His family was his heart.  Although family was always priority for him, his love for the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots followed closely behind.  He also loved animals, horticulture, community volunteering, and helping others in need.  He left his mark in the communities where he lived helping so many people fortunate enough to cross paths with him.

 

Cecile Ann (Montminy) Brown, born December 12, 1935, died September 23, 2020.

Cecile was a vibrant, creative, loving woman with her own passions.  She loved painting, knitting, the beach, seafood and traveling.  She was a member of the VA Lions and Women’s Red Hats Society.  She also loved the Red Sox and the Patriots and thoroughly enjoyed fresh-caught blue crabs and oysters.  Most importantly, she treasured the moments with family and friends.  She was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, and friend who was often the rock for many.

In loving memory, a celebration of life memorial will be held for Dick and Cecile Brown, who were married 55 years.  The celebration of life memorial and interment will be held Saturday June 18, at 10 a.m. at Westlook Cemetery in Glover.
