Matthew Brown, 60, of Goffstown NH, passed away on March 4th, 2021 after a brief illness with family by his side. He was born on May 18, 1960 to the late John & Constance (Brayne) Brown in Boston, MA, and would spend most of his life in Framingham, MA and would later move to Manchester, NH.

Those who knew Matthew will remember him as a quiet yet caring and loving man with a big heart. He was always known to help others despite the cost and was generous and giving until his last day. He was a lifelong fan of all New England sports, especially the Bruins, and he loved music of all types throughout his life. He especially enjoyed driving around and listening to rock classics. He was also an avid dog lover and could make the meanest dog in the world fall in love with him. He is surely reunited with his past dogs as we speak.

Matthew is predeceased by his parents John & Constance Brown and his sister Joyce Brown. He is survived by his brothers Thomas Brown and his wife Melissa, Edward Brown and his wife Janice, Scott Brown; nephews Brian, Tommy & Nolan Brown; nieces Shannon, Jamie, Shauna and Samantha Brown and the love of his life Catherine Ohanasian.

No services will be held at this time. A graveside service in Waltham, MA will be held at a later date.

In Matthew's memory, donations can be made to the Jimmy fund to support cancer research.
