Obituary for Richard Brown

Richard  Brown
Richard W. Brown, 88, of Wentworth, NH, passed away peacefully on May 27th, 2018 at Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth, NH with loving family at his side.

Richard was born on July 29, 1929, in Bellport, NY to Everett and Hazel (Searles) Brown. Only one baby was expected, but identical twins were delivered by their father, Everett. Word quickly spread around town and additional clothes were gathered for the family. The twins were close and grew up in Bellport, helping at the family garage and enjoying Great South Bay and the local outdoor area. Fishing was always a favorite pastime. When Dick was a teenager he became a commercial fisherman getting up at 4:00 AM to lay his nets. He received permission from the principal to leave high school in the afternoon to gather his nets and to get the fish ready for market. When he finished high school in 1947, his father insisted that he join the family business, Brown's Garage, where he worked for over fifty years. In 1950 he married a local girl, Lillian Alyce Sengstack. After retiring from the garage the happy couple spent their summers at home in Brookhaven, NY and their winters in Florida. They began to enjoy extensive traveling, even volunteering for a travel agency, allowing them to organize and experience many cruises around the world. The last few years Richard and Alyce resided in Wentworth, NH to be near family.

Richard is survived by his loving wife, Alyce, his sons, Clifford (Danville, CA), Dennis (El Cajon, CA), Duane (Wentworth, NH), and daughter Aimee (Rancho Palos Verdes, CA) and their families, including eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his daughter, Cynthia and his granddaughter, Meagan.

Burial will be held in the family plot in the Oaklawn Cemetery, in Brookhaven, NY., at the convenience of the family.
