Arthur L. "Leroy" Brown

Arthur L. Leroy" Brown passed peacefully at home on April 16, 2018 at the age of 88. He was married for over 60 years to his loving wife, the late Joyce (Cooley) Brown. Devoted Godfather of Stacey Fritsche and Jodi Purcell. Further survived by several nieces and nephews. Born and raised in Cranston, the son of the late Walter and Muriel (Massey) Brown, he was a lifelong resident of Cranston. In 1948, he joined the U.S. Army where he was a Sergeant First Class. He was honorably discharged in 1955. After serving with the Army, Mr. Brown spent most of his early career in the glass industry, working for Thatcher Glass in Wellesley, MA. He then decided to change gears, and ended his career working in the insurance industry, where he was employed by Amica Insurance for ten plus years. As an avid golfer, he was a longtime member of the Warwick Country Club. Later in life, he enjoyed nothing more than a day spent at the dog track hanging out with his track buddies. Known and loved for his sarcastic wit, and generous spirit, he will be missed by many. At his request, no services will be held.
