Frederick 'Fred' Brown

January 8, 1948 — November 18, 2020

Frederick W. “Fred” Brown, 72, of Cabot, VT passed away on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, at his home with his wife, Jane, by his side.

Fred was born in St. Albans, VT on January 8, 1948, to Neil and Ila (Wry) Brown. He graduated from BFA-St. Albans and obtained a bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont.  Fred worked as a Claims Representative for Social Security in Montpelier, VT. Prior to Social Security, he worked for the Central Vermont Railroad.  On June 24, 1983, Frederick married Eleanor Jane Bolton in Cabot, and the couple shared 37 years together.

An active member of Joe’s Pond Association, Frederick designed and managed the Joe’s Pond website and treasured the friendships made there over the years.  He was an active sports fan, especially of the Red Sox.  He thoroughly enjoyed his home and being near Joe’s Pond. He and Jane enjoyed many long walks in the woods and on West Shore Road, in all seasons and sometimes less than perfect weather. Fred was a devoted husband and stepfather and he enjoyed being part of a boisterous, outgoing family and the Joe’s Pond community. He dearly loved his granddaughters and enjoyed going to their school activities and games, or dance recitals. He was always their biggest fan. He was an extremely kind and generous person who will be deeply missed.

Survivors include his loving wife: Jane Brown of Cabot; stepsons William Dimick and wife, Monika, of Waterford, VT, Robert Dimick and wife, Theresa, of St. Johnsbury, VT, and James Dimick and wife, Marie, of Cabot, VT; a brother, N. Thomas Brown and wife, Ella, of Laconia, NH; a sister, Joanne Brown; two grandchildren, Jo Anne and Tangeni Dimick; a niece; nephews; and many cousins.

He was predeceased by his parents, Neil and Ila Brown and sisters, Helen Brown and Cynthia Brown Kalet.
