 George Fogg Brown
Richmond-George F. Brown, 73, died on Aug. 11, 2014 at the Androscoggin Hospice House in Auburn with his wife by his side.

George was born on August 22, 1940 in Mexico the son of Alfred and Nona Brown. 

He grew up in Richmond and was a graduate of Richmond High School.

George was the perfect example of someone who lived the Great American Dream.  At the tender age of 19 after serving his nation in the National Guard, he began his career at the Etonic Shoe Company in Richmond as night watchman, not exactly the perfect job.  As a result of hard work, determination and a need to create a better life for him and his family, he worked his way up through the corporate structure of the company to become foreman of various rooms within the factory.  He eventually become plant manager at Etonic, the leading manufacturer of high quality golf shoes in the world.  After leaving Etonic, he finished his career in the manufacturing sector as Plant Manager of the Allen Edmonds Shoe Factory in Auburn, another producer of high quality shoes made in America.  He proved that hard work and determination can lead to success and a better life style.

George was predeceased by his parents, sisters Norma, Shirley, Madge, Madelyn and Sylvia, brothers Donald, Austin and Clyde.  He is survived by his wife of 33 years Nancy of Richmond, children Mark and wife Shelby of Minot, N.D., Kevin and wife Diana of Chester Springs, PA., Julie and husband Charles of West Gardiner, step children Holly Wilkinson and husband Bill of Dresden, Brett Dorr and fiancée Rachel of Georgia, grandchildren Jason Brown and wife Sara, Christopher Brown, Nicole and Logan Hallett, step grandchildren Craig and Amy Wilkinson, Megan, Alex, Jessica Dorr, great grandson Ben, sister Arlene Geddes of Brunswick, brothers Darryl and wife Penny of Livermore Falls, Gerald and wife Ruth of Richmond, Neal and wife Priscilla of Bowdoinham, Charles of Whitefield, Alton of Randolph, sister in-law Stella Brown of Pittston and Joanne Brown of South Gardiner.
