Braun, Ernest S.
Ernest Stiles Braun of Branford died on October 31, 2018 at Branford Hills Health Care Center. He was born July 18, 1936 in Guilford, CT, son of the late Edwin and Clara Stiles Braun. His sister Pearl Mayer and brother Edwin Braun precede him in death. His brother Walter Braun of Palm Harbor, Florida survives him.
Ernie was a veteran of the U.S. Army. He was a proud retired firefighter for the City of Hamden, CT, where he drove the fire truck for Station 5. He was a loving owner and kind friend to many dogs and cats, a menagerie of birds, and to a white ferret named George. His hobbies included carefully crafting a wonderful train layout that fascinated his many nieces and nephews. He had a great sense of humor that would sneak up on you when you least expected it. He will be greatly missed by friends and family alike.
Funeral services were at the convenience of his family. W. S. Clancy Memorial Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
