Son of Fred and Madeleine Brown, he was born on Sept. 27, 1936, and was raised in Middletown.

Bill was an avid athlete for Middletown High School. He excelled in track, football, and, his favorite: basketball. He played for Middletown Duso league for over 15 years. He also enjoyed photography, fishing, and his family — especially his five grandchildren.

Bill retired from Mid-Hudson Psychiatric Center as a treatment assistant.

He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Margaret Brown; four sons, William Brown Jr., and his wife, Tinalyn Firestone, of Encino, Calif., Marcellus Brown and his wife, Cindy, of Marlboro, Mass., Calen Bradley of Goshen, N.Y., and Robert Humphrey of Milford, Pa.; five grandchildren, Adrian and Jordon Brown, Camani, Zoen, Nehemiah Bradley; his former wife, Deanna Brown; many nieces and nephews; and his beloved puppy Ko-Ko.

He is pre-deceased by his parents, Fred and Madeleine Brown; and his sister Jean Cuffee.

The family would like to thank Middletown Park Manor Rehabilitation for their exceptional care and kindness.

Visitation will be held at Applebee-Mcphillips Funeral Home, 130 Highland Ave., Middletown, on Friday, May 3, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m., with a celebration of life service at 7:30 p.m.
