Linda and family, I just heard today about Brownie. All of us at the American legion Post 188 in Sandwich will miss him. He always kept us smiling and laughing with his pictures of you and him on his bike. We will miss him. Please accept our sympathy, Robin and the Bartenders at Post 188

So sorry to hear about Brownie. He was a good mechanic that often did not appreciate my 1985 Honda Accord, especially when it needed an alternator. Choice words were spoken by all involved - for good reason.

Saw him many times bring in his mother-in-law to the Elks in Eastham where they both enjoyed themselves. These were good times and it was obvious the amount of love he had for his family members.

Our thoughts are with you,
Linda & Ken Damon

I had the pleasure of working with Brownie Jr. at the Texaco for many years starting at the age of 14. He taught me how to swab the deck properly, the intricacies of changing tires on a rim, and a few choice phrases as he was swapping out exhaust systems.
As I look back on those years, I appreciate the lessons learned and experiences shared.
Thank you Brownie.

My heart has been heavy since the passing of Cousin Brownie. He never failed to visit me whenever he was sent to the Seabee base in Gulfport, MS during the 80’s and his recent visit with Linda. I will miss him calling me, hey Cuz and his wonderful sense of humor.

Linda and family, Charlie and I send our thoughts & prayers to you. Brownie will always remain in our memories and a special place in my heart.

Dear Linda and family we are so sorry to hear of Brownie's passing.
You two were a wonderfull loving couple. I always enjoyed it when he would stop by my shop in Hyannis to say hi if he were in the area and we enjoyed seeing both of you a few years ago in Ormond Beach. He will be missed by all of us who knew him.

Peter & Denise Demers.

I'm so sorry to hear of your father's passing. No matter what the age or circumstances are, the loss of a parent is always difficult. Cherish the memories for they will never pass away.

A great man who took pride in his family & work. I had the great fortune of working with Brownie for a couple of years now. He was a well respected and appreciated member of our team and will be missed. Despite all he faced, he continued to live, visited work regularly, and still offered words of wisdom and guidance to those he met.
I'll miss seeing him roll through the gates on his Harley Trike, telling tales about Feather his feline friend, talking about the Elks, and sharing all kinds of hysterical jokes.
Thank you, Brownie.
