Like many of the students honored to have been in his class, we are deeply sadden at Tom Brown's passing.  We were privileged to have known him as a teacher, advocate, author and friend.  Our hearts and prayers are directed to Sarah Joe and to Anthony Brown as you celebrate the life lived fully and honorable.  He will be missed dearly by the legends who adored him as you both know.  Bill and Jean Clark

Mr. Tom Brown was my world history teacher in Trenton
High. I learned a lot from his class. I also learned about my Uncle that served in the Navy during WWII.
Mr. Browns book is a good read.
It is a loss to many to have him pass over.
God bless his family.

As students of Mr. Brown (we didn't call teachers by their given name in the 50's), we were blessed by his good humor and exceptional ability to interest his students in his subjects.  Our sincere condolences to Sarah and family, and a heartfelt hurrah for a life well lived.

I join countless other students, friends and admirers of Mr. Brown in celebrating an exceptional life of service and a greatly needed role model for our times. As a distinguished member of The Greatest Generation, an accomplished educator and a tireless and formidable advocate on behalf of those who were challenged to advocate for themselves, Mr. Brown stands as a battle-tested and results-proven champion for how to live life. I am so grateful to have experienced his teaching and to have known him as a person. I'm also so happy to have been able to have what turned out to be our final conversation with him in September at the alumni reunion.  He will always be an inspiration to me, and I know I am in a very large congregation who share that view. I offer condolences to the family and share in celebrating a great life.

Sarah and Tony

I'm so sorry to hear about Tom's passing, but he certainly lived a full life.  Many things I never knew about him - quite a guy!  I hope he got my card last week and could read it.  Not sure if I can make the funeral, but will try.

Love you both

So sorry to learn of Tom's death. My sincerest sympathy to you Sarah and Tony. I always enjoyed working with Tom at the Republican Times when our editor was gone on vacation or other reasons. I learned to appreciate him as a journalist,, a fine gentleman and as a good friend. We enjoyed many good conversations. I remember Tommy coming in to see him. This always touched me as he was so proud of him and I know a wonderful father. Again please accept my sincere sympathy.
