ATHOL- Randy Glen Brown, 56, of Beacon Street, died suddenly early Wednesday morning, January 10, 2024.
Born in Athol on May 30, 1967, he was the son of Gerald R. Brown and Gloria A. (Berry) Brown. He grew up in Orange attending the local schools.
In his childhood he was in the Cub Scouts, played drums for the elementary school band. Randy also played Little League for the Piggly Wiggly team in Orange.
Randy enjoyed growing up with all the neighborhood friends always ready for a ball game, riding mini bikes, or snowmobiles and ice hockey on the pond for winter time.
Around 1987, Randy met and fell in love with his life partner Mary Castagnaro. They spent 37 plus years together raising their daughter Maria, and helping to raise his three step children, Angela, David and Joe. He was also a proud “grandpa” to two wonderful grandchildren and three step grandchildren.
He enjoyed spending time with his family at Laurel Lake for birthday parties, and to cool off on a hot summer day. Randy liked scratching lottery tickets and was quite lucky every once in awhile. He also played on a pool league, winning with his team, that earned them a trip to Vegas.
With support from family and friends Randy was a two time cancer survivor, never giving up.
Randy held various jobs, but for the past 30 years or so, he worked in the lumber business. First at Beaman’s Lumber Co. in New Hampshire, and then at Cersosimo Lumber Co. in Brattleboro, Vermont where he had currently been working.
Aside from his partner Mary, Randy leaves behind his daughter Maria; step children Andela and David; two grandchildren and three step grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother, Richard Brown Sr. of North Carolina; sisters, Ruth Hause and Ronda Brown and her partner, Curtis, all of Orange; as well as nieces, nephews, cousins and all extended family and friends and co-workers that in some way touched his life.
Randy was predeceased by his parents, his step son Joe, brother in law Robert Hause, and sister in law Christine Brown.
