July 23, 1939 - December 25, 2021
Lewis Harrison Brown, 82, passed away at his home on Christmas morning, December 25th, 2021. Lewis was born on July 23, 1939, in York, PA, the son of the late J. Lewis and Mae (Harrison) Brown. He graduated from York High School in 1957 and received his Doctor of Education in Science in 1976 from Penn State, whereupon he taught high school science for the next 41 years, the majority of it at Donegal High School in Mount Joy, PA. Lewis was a member of Zion United Methodist Church in East Prospect, PA. In addition to memberships in numerous nature organizations, he also belonged to the local Lions Club and served on the local planning commission. Lewis absolutely loved gardening and working on his farm. For 45 years he was an active member of the American Rhododendron Society, serving several times as President of the Susquehanna Valley Chapter. He was also a caring shepherd to his flock of 30 Dorset sheep. For the last 15 years Lew was an active volunteer at Head Harbor Light Station in New Brunswick, Canada, sharing his knowledge of local birds with tourists and where, even in his 70s, could be found on high ladders, painting the iconic 60ft. lighthouse from bottom to top. He was a tireless worker. Lew is survived by his loving wife, Linda, with whom he would have celebrated their 60th anniversary this coming June. Also surviving him is his daughter Susan Hardesty, his grandchildren Laura Brown, Kaitlyn, Aaron, and Jennifer Kohler and his great-grandchildren Landen, Jazlynn, Aisling, and Daniel. How we will all miss Pop Pop at the family get-togethers he so enjoyed. In addition to his parents, Lewis was pre-deceased by his brothers Thomas and Barry Brown, his beloved son Jeffrey Brown, and dear grandson Brandon Cordero. In keeping with Lew’s wishes there will be no service at this time. A celebration of his life will be planned for the spring. In his memory Lew would want us to brighten the world with flowers, plant a tree and remember to feed the birds for him in the winter. Rest in peace, Dear Lewis.
