Edward I. Brown Obituary
Brown, Edward I. 04/25/1921 ~ 09/08/2013 RANCHO BERNARDO Born Gunnison, UT; BSME, Caltech 1943 cum laude; USAF WWII (Burma Hump); Married Jean Henderson 1945; President Remington Shaver, Pres. Remington Rand, Pres. Univac Computers; Pres. General Valve & Aerojet General; Retired 1979. Greatest accomplishment was his passion and devotion to family, friends and community. Raised five children teaching the difference between right and wrong and to give rather than receive. After a brilliant corporate career he retired to Rancho Bernardo where he jumped into volunteerism with both feet becoming a pillar of the community. Recreation Council Chairman for many years he led the drive to build the RB Community Park gymnasium, tennis courts and pavilion, lawn bowling field and the senior center that bears his name. He served as a SCORE counselor, was a Lions Club member and president as well as many other civic groups and then was inducted into the RB Hall of Fame in 1989. Favorite pastimes were all social. Golf and tennis were his passions until just recently. He played bridge regularly using his wit and skill and often winning with his wife of 21 years Jeanne. His best times in life were being surrounded by family and friends, which was often. He reached his larger than life arms around Jeanne's six children and seven grandchildren like his own. Family in his view is the anchor in one's life and he would often comment on how lucky and blessed he felt. He is survived by his wife Jeanne Young Brown of Rancho Bernardo, his daughter Linda Crook of Birmingham, MI, his son Craig Brown of Poway, CA, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild. A service open to the public is being held at El Camino Memorial Park on Sunday, September 15th, at 10:00 a.m. with a celebration/reception following at the Ed Brown Senior Center at noon. In lieu of flowers he would have preferred a donation to the Ed Brown Senior Center for its operating needs.
