Howard Walter Brown
March 4, 1922 - Feb. 12, 2014

Howard Walter Brown, 91, of Swanton, Vt., passed away on Feb. 12 after a long period of declining health.

Born in Sangerville on March 4, 1922, he graduated from Hartland Academy in 1940. He married Carolyn Haseltine in July 1942 in Dexter, after which he joined the U.S. Army Air Force. Howard spent those war years in England and France, returning home in October 1945.

Howard began working for the State of Maine as a Game Warden in 1946, assigned to the Lincoln District. In 1953 he began the next step of the career he loved as a Federal Game Management Agent for the U.S. Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Throughout his tenure as an agent, he was stationed in Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Vermont. He also spent many summers conducting waterfowl studies in Quebec, James Bay, Charleton Island, the Prairie Provinces, and the Maritime Provinces. He retired in 1977.

In 1984 Howard and Carolyn returned to Maine, to Jefferson, to a pond filled with ducks and beaver, with wild turkeys in their yard, where they built a log home for themselves; a culmination of their life-long dream. In 2003 they returned to Vermont to be closer to their children.

Carolyn predeceased Howard in 2004, and he stayed in their home in Swanton until his death.

Howard is survived by his children, Ernest (Kate) Brown, Pam (William) Palma, Lynn (Jay) Speer, Marilee (Paul) Contois, and Ken (Gayle) Brown; grandchildren, Sienna (Dante Blando) Brown, Thomas (Jessica) Brown, Analesa (Ron) Snyder, Aneta Palma, Jordan (Maria Allegrini) Speer, Hannah Contois, Hayley Contois, Phillip (Mary) Brown, and Kristopher Brown; and great-grandchildren, Ron Snyder Jr., Makayla Snyder, August Cyr, Jarek Cyr, and Kendall Speer, with another expected in July.

At Howard's request, there will be no visiting hours or service. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
