Ralph E. Brown


Ralph E. Brown, 72, passed away Feb. 22, 2019. He was born in Calais in Sept. 21, 1946, to Lillian and Glenister Brown.

Ralph grew up in Grand Lake Stream and later moved to Ellsworth. He worked at Raymond Sargent Construction, the Ellsworth School Department, Sargent’s Manufactured Homes, D.W. Small & Son’s and Irving Oil Terminals. He retired in September 2014 from Irving Oil after 41 years of service.

He is survived by his wife, Alice Jane (Myrick) Brown; daughter, Melanie S. Brown of Ellsworth; one grandson, Brian S. Twitchell of Warren, Vt. He was predeceased by his parents; one brother, Rodney Brown; several aunts and uncles and extended family.

Ralph will be dearly missed by many who knew him. The nature of his work enabled him to travel across Maine and beyond, creating friendships along the way. Many will remember his uncanny mechanical knowledge of building and fixing things. This included his recent restoration of a 1948 International KB 8.

Per Ralph’s request, there will no funeral service or donations.

Arrangements by Jordan-Fernald, 113 Franklin St., Ellsworth.
