Scarborough - Kenneth Harold Brown, 91, of Freeport died Tuesday August 21, 2012 at the Maine Veterans' Homes in Scarborough. He was born on July 1, 1921 in Pownal, ME, the second son of Louise (Varney) and Edgar Brown, Sr. He was educated in local schools and graduated from Freeport High School.

Ken was a hand sewer for several Freeport shoe companies and his shoes were often used as samples by the sales team. He retired from LL Bean after 14 years in the Distribution Center.
Ken was a great New England sports fan, coached baseball, helped with the basketball booster club and served as the basketball scorekeeper for many years. He was a staunch Republican - nothing more needs to be said.

Ken took great pleasure in his time spent with his family, be it playing UNO - a staple family game, summer family vacations at Little Sebago Lake, lunch with his wife Dot or any time spent with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Ken and Dot never missed an opportunity to mark a special family occasion. Ken's love for his family could always be seen in his distinctive smile.

Ken is survived by his daughter Adena Stewart of Raymond; his sons: Frederick "Bruce" Brown and Richard "Dick" Brown of Freeport; his granddaughters:: Nadine Grosso and her husband Vincent of Gray, Danielle O'Connell of Raymond; his grandson Dakota Brown of Freeport; his great-granddaughters Jenny and Ava and his great-grandson Ryan; his Brother Edgar Brown and his wife Barbara of Bangor and his sister Marilyn Groves of Freeport. He was predeceased by his wife Dot in 2009; his brother Gerald Brown and his sisters Claudia Pooter and Phyllis Rufus.
