Browe, David J. NORTH GREENBUSH David J. Browe passed away suddenly doing what he loved to do, drag racing at Lebanon Valley on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Born on January 16, 1955, David was the son of the late Gerald Browe Sr. and Evelyn Bryant Browe. David's greatest joys in life start with his loving wife Janet, spending time with family, especially his children and grandchildren, his love for animals and his street racing family. David enjoyed vacationing in Maine and the many road trips in search of muscle cars. He truly can be described as a muscle car enthusiast and was a member of the Drag Racing Club: 518 No Stipz Street Racing. David always enjoyed a good party surrounded by all his family and friends. He could always put a smile on anyone's face with his jokes. David believed in working hard for things you want in life and instilled this in all of his children. He was the proud owner and operator of David Browe Paving, Inc. In addition to his wife Janet, David is survived by his children, Jason (Marcee), Liza (Rob), Angeline (Mill) Keneston and David (Tara); his cherished grandchildren, Anthony, Morgan, Madison, Leah, Jamison, Juliana, Lindsay Ann, Drake and Dalton; his fur babies, Sophie and Sammy; siblings, Carol (David) King, Richard (Judith), Doris (Jim) Pullar, Vernon (Jim), William (Helena), Larry (Cathy), Donna, Margaret (Tom) Corellis, and Jon (Andrew); several nieces and nephews; mother-in-law Joan Boule'; and brother and sister-in-law Robert (Celine) Boule' and Cathy Boule'. David was predeceased by his brother Gerald Sr.; sister Elizabeth; best friend/nephew Shawn Pullar; father-in-law Robert Boule'; and dad's boy Pete. The family wishes to thank the first responders and staff who cared for David at Lebanon Valley Speedway and Albany Medical Center Hospital. A funeral service for David will be held on Friday, October 11, at 10 a.m. in the W. J. Lyons Jr. Funeral Home, 1700 Washington Ave., Rensselaer. Relatives and friends are invited to call at the funeral home on Thursday, from 4 to 7 p.m. Interment will follow the funeral service in Memory Gardens Cemetery, Colonie.
