Livonia - Went to be with the Lord on Monday, August 10, 2020 at age 89. Predeceased by his parents Robert Brown and Catherine Brown Patterson; sisters Alice Patterson and Sally Yaniga; brother-in-law Ed Yaniga.

Tom graduated from Edison Tech in 1950. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War aboard the USS Missouri. He worked at Lawyers Co-op, was a building inspector, then became the Assistant Superintendent of Public Works for the Village of Spencerport, and was active in the American Legion Post, also in Spencerport. He was an avid pilot of his plane that he shared with a friend for many years. Also, throughout his life, he enjoyed many activities: boating, skiing, hunting, but above all, he loved being with his family.
