John C. Brown was born on August 17, 1949 and passed from this earth on March 11, 2021, he was 71 years of age. John leave behind his Seacorp/The Arc Eastern Connecticut Family, his guardian and friend Earl Peters of Old Lyme, and a rich assortment of people whose lives were touch by him and his amazing spirit.

John will be remembered for his strength, compassion and sense of humor. Most notably he will be remembered for his love of a good tale, his enrichment of every story and his innate ability to get people to move their cars by yelling at them out the window. John had the ability to cross over to so many people, allowing all to love him-to embrace his spirit as well as his disability.

He was an avid car lover having spent birthdays riding in Limos and Mustangs. John enjoyed listening to sirens of fire trucks, ambulances and police cars. And most of all he loved inventing tales about how he was involved in all the noise and activity.

John will be greatly missed by his housemates, by the people who cared for him every day, and by so many. He leaves behind amazing memories of a man who lived life everyday with a sense of purpose and fun. Goodbye Brownie-you were loved.
