This past week, the Glassboro Fire Dept. lost one of its own. Glen “Mickey” Brown was a member of our department for over 40 years, serving as Chief from 1990 to 1993. Mickey was a staple around the firehouse, often found enjoying a cup of coffee with other members. He will surely be missed. We offer our deepest condolences to Mickey’s family and friends.
Glen Michael (Mickey) Brown
Born: March 30, 1940
Died: March 04, 2015
Son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, great grandfather: these are the familial titles Mickey has proudly held over the years.
Born on March 30, 1940 to Glen and Sylvia Brown – the third child to join the family and the first born in Glassboro. At twenty-one, Mickey married an eighteen-year-old girl from Clayton; Kathleen Sarah Walker and the two were together for 53 years. They had four sons Michael, Christopher, James, and Robert. He was a little league coach and a Boy Scout leader, earning Father of the Year Award. He was a volunteer fireman for 40 years becoming Chief from 1990 to 1993. He enjoyed traveling, the Firemen’s Convention and Phillies baseball games.
To miss him very much, Mickey leaves behind his loving wife Kathleen (aka Sally); four sons, five grandchildren, two great grandchildren, his sister Beverly Bruynell, and his furry kid Friskie.
