Lloyd Stafford Browne Sr.

PLATTSBURGH — The sun set over our family when Lloyd Stafford Browne Sr., 82, of Champlain Park, died peacefully on Friday, April 19, after a brief illness.

He was born on July 9, 1930, in Washington DC, the son of Wilson and Annie (Smith) Brown. Lloyd was the love of Betty Veney's life. They were married on Aug. 11, 1951 in Washington DC.

Lloyd served his country in the U.S. Air Force from 1947 to 1968, as a chef and then as an accounting and finance officer, positions that took him to Japan, Korea, Hawaii, Goose Bay Labrador, and several New England states. After retiring, he worked in several car dealerships in the North Country, as well as owning and operating several restaurants, one of which was D.C. Reds Barbecue. He spent the last seven years devoted to caring for his wife who lives gracefully with Alzheimer's.

Lloyd Browne was one of the founders of Pioneer Lodge No. 102, Prince Hall F & AM in 1966 in Plattsburgh, and was elected and served as Worshipful Master from 1966-1967 and 1997-2002. He also was a member of Al Tabari Temple #121 in Albany and served as the Illustrious Potentate 2004 and 2005. He is currently Past Master of Mt. Zion Lodge No. 46 in Albany, N.Y. He was a 32 Degree Mason and member of the Consistory.

Lloyd was passionately devoted to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He and Betty attended every child's high school graduation. He was a proud grandfather who fostered strong bonds with each child... a true family patriarch. He defined the Browne family name by instilling a strong work ethic, sense of fairness, integrity and inquisitiveness in his children. It was common for his children to weigh conventional wisdom against the brilliant perspective of Dad. Even his friend Dean could not help but engage Dad in twice daily spirited telephone conversations, which carried him through his illness.
