Leo C. Brown
Leo C. Brown, 84, of Dundee died peacefully on Wednesday, December 20, 2017, in his home – surrounded by family. He was born on October 7, 1933 in Dundee in the same house he died in; the Brown Family Homestead (his wish fulfilled), the son of Clem and Frances (Flitter) Brown.
On August 29th, 1953 he married Carol M. Hughes at St. Matthew Catholic Church in Campbellsport.
Leo lived a wonderful life and said he wouldn’t change a thing. He worked on the family farm, for Gehls, Ram, Michels, etc. and drove truck.
Leo was tremendously loved by his children, 17 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren. He was well known and well loved with many friends (impacting many) and was an integral part of Dundee for 84 years. Leo mowed grass and plowed snow for most of Dundee. He had a warm heart, was very generous, proud of his flags and accepting of all. His favorite sayings were “have a good day and don’t let anyone ruin it” and”Grandpa loves ya”. As his health declined, he fondly reminisced upon his life and often made the comment “I had a good run”. Leo was very proud of his family, his home and Dundee.
Leo was preceded in death by his parents, wife Carol on January 16, 2013, sisters Monica Lavey and Joan Becker, sisters-in-law Dolly Brown and Sharon Hughes and brothers-in-law Richard Becker and Donald Uelmen.
Visitation will be held on Saturday Dec. 23rd at Shepherd of the Hills Catholic Church, W1563 County Rd. B, Eden from 9:00 AM until a Mass of Christian Burial at 1:00 PM. Rev. Mark Jones will officiate and burial will follow at Sacred Heart Cemetery in Dundee.
