Donald L. Brown

February 14, 1943 — February 12, 2024


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Donald Lee Brown, known affectionately by many as Don, on February 12, 2024, a mere two days shy of his 81st birthday. Born on February 14, 1943, in Sayre, PA, Don spent his life making a profound impact on those around him, leaving an indelible mark upon the hearts of all who knew him. He was a humble and thoughtful man, known for his kind spirit and easy-going nature.

Donald spent much of his working life as a truck driver, a profession that perfectly suited his love for trucks and cars. He was a dedicated employee in the transportation/trucking business until his retirement. Beyond his work, Don was a man of simple pleasures. He cherished feeding the birds, had a soft spot for all animals, and found peace in the quiet solitude of fishing. He also had a strong sense of duty, as evidenced by his service in the US Army from 1961-1964. Despite the many places he lived, including Fitchburg, Leominster, Greenville, NH, and his birthplace of Sayre, PA, Donald spent the last 3 years in Templeton, Massachusetts.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Karen Brown, and his parents, Forrest and Irene Brown. Donald is survived by his daughters, Laurie Brown, Lisa Dembek and husband Kirk; siblings, Juantia Campbell, Roy Brown and wife Deborah; grandchildren, Ronald and Stephanie DeVarney and great-granddaughters, Victoria, Brianna and Hailey and several nieces and nephews.

The life and legacy of Donald Brown will forever be remembered and cherished by his family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched. We invite you to share your memories, stories, and photos on his memorial page, as a tribute to a life well-lived. Rest in peace, Donald. You will be dearly missed.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in Don's name to the Montachusett Veterans Outreach, 268 Central Street, Gardner, Ma 01440

Celebration of Life will be held at Lisa Dembek's home, Saturday, February 24 at 2:00 PM.
