Christopher Brown Obituary

Christopher S. Brown , 66 of New Harbor, passed away on the evening of December 7th, after a very long illness at the Sandy River Center in Farmington.  Born in Ridgewood, NJ on October 12, 1957, he was the son of Steven and Carolyn Brown.

He was brought up in Montclair, NJ where he graduated from Montclair High School.  He was an Eagle Scout with Bronze Palm, and helped with local troops.

Chris graduated from Yale University.  While there, he was a member of the Crew Team, President of the Pistol Club, and worked for the Yale Police Department.

After graduating, he worked selling stocks, mutual funds and insurance.  The work he much preferred however, was construction and interior and exterior painting.  He loved being outdoors.

His hobbies and favorite activities were reading and researching history, especially military and political.  He was a true lover of our democratic republic.  He also loved hiking, camping, gardening and animals, especially his German Shepherd, Thor, and cat, Bucky.

Chris was predeceased by his parents, and his sister, Gail.  He is survived by his wife, Carol M. Reilly of New Harbor; as well as several cousins.
