George A. Brown, 85, of Hopkinton passed away at home Feb. 8. Born in Boston, he was the son of the late George and Laura (Fulton) Brown. He was the husband of 61 years to Mary (Henry) Brown.
One of George’s greatest passions was being a mechanic. He had the pleasure of teaching mechanics for more than 25 years at Keefe Tech, sharing his love of it with many students over the years. Even after his retirement, people would still call and ask him for trouble advice. George was also an avid bowler for many years. He proudly served in the U.S. Army both active and in the reserve.
Besides his wife, George is survived by his son, Robert Brown of Hopkinton, and his granddaughter, Denise Powers and her husband, Patrick, of Framingham. He is predeceased by sons George Thomas Brown and Kenneth Scott Brown.
