Brown, Charles O. NEW LEBANON Charles Owen Brown, 88, of New Lebanon, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday morning, August 7, 2018. Born in Pittsfield, Mass. on June 20, 1930, he was the son of the late Jay and Catherine Brown. Charles grew up in Pittsfield until 1941 when the family moved to New Lebanon.
