C. Bruce Brown, 75, Newburyport, MA, Shinglehouse Native

Newburyport, MA ---  
C. Bruce Brown, 75, longtime Newburyport resident, died peacefully Thursday, December 20, 2012 @ the Country Manor Nursing Home in Newburyport, surrounded by his family.

Born in Olean, NY on June 9, 1937, he was the son of the late Woodrow and Doris Lanphere Brown, and a 1955 graduate of Oswayo Valley High School, Shinglehouse, PA. 

Following graduation Bruce entered the Air Force, serving with the Strategic Air Command until October 8, 1959. The University of New Hampshire provided a pathway to his next career, which was a Special Education teacher and basketball coach at Amesbury High School in NE Massachusetts. From there he had a stellar career in insurance in the New England states, and during that time period met the love of his life, Peggy Kennedy.

For many years he ran his own advertising agency which encompassed sites throughout the northeast, and allowed him many opportunities to visit family and friends back home in Shinglehouse. Bruce was an enthusiastic and generous supporter of the Oswayo Valley High School Alumni Ass’n. Memories of his years in the area were reflected on the menu @ his restaurant the Shinglehouse CafĂ© on Plum Island …e.g. Bell Run Burger, Ceres Surprise, the “Sunnyside” Special, etc.. Bruce was a man of many talents, many interests, and a much-loved spark on the Lanphere family tree.

Active within the Newburyport community he was a member of the Lions Club, the Elks, St. John’s Lodge, Director of the Haverhill Y.M.C.A., and longtime advocate of the Jimmy Fund which supports cancer research. He also served on a board as Councilor for the City of Newburyport for over a decade.

His survivors include wife Peggy L. (Kennedy) Brown of Newburyport; three children, U.S. Senator Scott P. Brown and wife Gail of Wrentham; Robyn L. Brown of Scarborough, ME; Bruce Brown and wife Michelle of Wolcott, CT; two step-children , Tracy Harrington and husband Christian, Todd Harrington and wife Amy; a sister, Linda Brown Dixon of Newark, NY and eight grandchildren.

Among Bruce’s relatives from the Shinglehouse area are his Aunt Lucille Lanphere, now at Chapel Ridge in Bradford, cousins Joanne L. Aloi of Olean,NY, Janice L. Hancharick of Raleigh, NC, and Janette L. Church of Shinglehouse, PA. We all will miss Bruce, his quick wit, sense of humor, and his love of family and friends.

Burial will be in Old Hill Cemetery, Newburyport, MA.

Donations in his memory may be made to the National Parkinson Foundation, Gift Processing Center, P.O. Box 5018 Hagerstown, MD., a local food bank, or the Bell Run Union Church, 904 Taylor Brook, Shinglehouse,PA . Bruce physically left this area many years ago and this Earth just a few days ago, but his heart and spirit were always anchored in these hills.
