Judge Wesley Brown appointed me to the position of a United States Probation Officer in U.S. District Court, Wichita, KS in 1968. Judge Brown was an early and lasting mentor in my thirty-one year career in the Federal Probation Service. In my mind, Judge Brown will always be remembered as a dedicated, fair and insightful Federal Judge. I respected, liked and admired him. He taught me so much about the law and life throughout my service in Wichita for over seventeen years. Also, he, Judge Theis, Judge Kelly and Judge Crow were most helpful to me in attaining the pinnacle of my career as a Chief U.S. Probation officer, in the District of Rhode Island.
May God bless Judge Brown's memory and comfort his family at this sorrowful time.
