Lester E. Brown

August 15, 1940 ~ November 16, 2020 (age 80)



Lester E. Brown, 80, of Bethesda, Ohio, passed away at home, with his family by his side, November 16, 2020.  One of five children, he was born August 15, 1940 in Powhatan, Ohio, to the late George E. and Dorothy L. Palmer Brown.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Roger Brown.

A devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Lester was a real go-getter, always busy, and enjoyed doing many projects around his home.  His passion was various types of construction work and he was extremely good at what he did.  He enjoyed time spent at Bark Camp and worked there, as an equipment operator.

Lester will be lovingly remembered and missed beyond measure by those who survive; his wife, Mary Brown of Bethesda; daughter, Melissa (Andrew) Kemp of Bethesda; son, Kurt Brown of Holloway; grandchildren, Tracy, Dominick, Cathryn, Atreyu, Issis, Isaac; great-grandchildren, Laney, Charles, Isabella, Isaiah, Nathan, and Natasha; sister, Barbara Gallaher; and brothers, Daniel (Mary) Brown and Nathan (Donna) Brown.
