AUBURN: Edward N. Brown, 89, of Auburn passed away peacefully at his home on Thursday August 2, 2018 with his loving family at his side. He was born in Groton, CT on March 20, 1929 a son of the late James and Pauline Brown. At a young age, Ed and his family moved to Madison, ME where he would continue his schooling. In 1946, Ed joined the United States Air Force and proudly served his country for 4 years. After his discharge from the Air Force, he served in the United States Navy Reserves for two additional years. In 1960, Ed met the love of his life, the former Geraldine Hinkley and eventually married her on July 7, 1961 in Gray. Together, they spent many wonderful years with each other and had just celebrated their 57th anniversary.

Ed will always be remembered for his love of the outdoors, which consisted of much hunting and fishing. He and Geraldine enjoyed using their camper going all over as well as time on their boat. He was also an excellent dancer and the two of them would frequently go out dancing in Jay with their friends. He will be deeply missed by many.

He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Geraldine of Auburn, several brothers and sisters-in-law and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his nine siblings.

The family wishes to express their sincere thanks to the nurses and caregivers of Androscoggin Home Healthcare & Hospice for the devotion and care they showed Ed during his final days. Condolences may be shared with Ed's family at www.thefortingroupauburn.com

So many summer days we were able to spend together outside with Ed, Jerry and other neighbors, sitting, laughing, and whiling away the gorgeous weather. I got to know Ed as a kind, thoughtful gentleman. He shared a lot of his life and family growing up and jobs that he had. I will miss him especially around 3:40 in the afternoons when it was time for Judge Judy. May God Rest the Soul of this wonderful man.


Love, Roberta Greenlaw

Thinking of you all....
