So shocked to hear of Nick's passing. He was a friend of my husband and myself in Jr. High at East Prairie School and kept in touch from time to time. We most recently saw Nick at a reunion and I am sorry to say that was the last time. He had such an infectious smile and was such a nice guy. Our sincere condolences to Nick's family.

To the entire Brown family, I was sorry to hear of Nick's passing. I have fond memories of him from High School as an athlete, peer leader, and most especially a warm and friendly guy.
I just found out about Nick's passing and I am in shock! He was my best friend in Skokie when I was 10 years old. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family

To the Nick Brown Family:
I am so sorry for your precious loss. I am just now hearing about his passing. I worked at Culligan Commerical and had the pleasure to work a bit with Nick. I reached out to him about a year ago and he told me of his illness. I did not know him as well as many but remember him as such a truly kind and caring person. The photo you have here really represents him so well with that contagious smile. I hope your many wonderful memories bring you some comfort.
My deepest sympathies to the entire Brown family. I just learned of Nick's passing. I worked with Nick at Mickey's for several years and knew him to be a wonderful, thoughtful and caring person. I will miss him deeply.
My deepest sympathies to the Brown family. I knew Nic for many years when the browns lived on our street. He will be greatly missed.

I prayed for you every day of your fight, but the battle was too great. I will miss your great smile and your warm heart.
May God be with you forever,
To the Brown family,
I was very saddened to learn of Nick's passing just a couple of days ago. Though it had been many years since I'd seen Nick, I still considered him to be a close friend from our days on Woodhill Drive and at GBN. Such was Nick's personality - the kind of man that shared his love freely and brightened any room he entered. My deepest sympathies to the entire family. May God's peace and comfort dwell in your hearts as you remember Nick. Heaven has gained a wonderful spirit!

He was a great guy and I will always remember him. We graduated Glenbrook North together and shared many of the same friends.
I especially remember what a great athlete he was and when he and I played tennis, though he didn't have alot of experience at that time, he was instantly a good player.

Nick was one of the best people I've met
in 42 years in the numismatic profession.
His upbeat personality, sense of humor,
honesty and integrity were valued and
appreciated by his peers. I'll miss the
dinners we shared at coin shows over the years. My thoughts are also with Jill - Leslie and I are hoping that you
are strong during this difficult period. Nick will be remembered and
adored by us - and greatly missed.
My heart goes out to you Jill, and Nick's family in this time of sorrow. Never have I met such a nicer person. Nick never had a bad thing to say about anyone! This is a great loss.
I will forever miss his wonderful smile.
To Chris & family.
