Edmund J. Brown
Brother Ed Brown died on November 21 at age 90. Ed joined the Knights on March 15, 1942-four months after our council was chartered. With 70+ years of service, one can only guess how many dinners, dances, and other events Ed and his wife Eleanor attended over the years. Though always humble, Ed was a strong pillar in the New Richmond community, and he and Eleanor leave a lasting legacy of 8 children, 18 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. Sons Pat, Lee, and Don are also members of our council. Our condolences to the entire family. May he rest in peace.

Helping out were Jeff, Ed Everson, Ed Zimmerman, Terry and Kim Palmer, Louie Dabruzzi, Doug Mils, Tony Kilian, Jared Gorka, Sandy Schoenherr and yours truly. I apologize if I missed anyone.
