Richard Charles Brown: June 30, 1935 – Aug. 17, 2017


Richard Charles Brown, age 82, passed away peacefully in his home in Oak Harbor on Aug. 17. He was surrounded by family.

Richard was born in Kirkland, Wash., to Florence Recor and Ralph Brown on June 30, 1935.

As an adult, Richard received his bachelor’s degree in construction engineering from Seattle University, where he began a career in the construction industry. After years of hard work, he became a project superintendent, a career he was very proud of.

His most crowning achievement, though, was his large and loving family. Richard is survived by his beloved wife Ramona, 10 children, 26 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren.

A graveside service for Richard will be held 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 25 at Maple Leaf Cemetery. Relatives and friends are welcome.
