Robert G. (Bob) Brown, New Market MD, passed away peacefully September 13, surrounded by loving family. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Kathy (Sagan), and his sister Mary Brown of Knoxville TN, along with his extended family, including 3 sisters-in-law and their husbands, 2 nieces, 2 nephews, and a grand-niece, all of whom are richer for having him in their lives. Bob held his own in a family of raucous, opinionated women, where his patience and good humor were admired and loved.
Enthralled with cars, trucks, and tractors as a toddler, Bob was a Motor Head. He loved long motorcycle rides on winding roads alone and with friends; followed Formula 1 and attended races with a devoted group of race buddies; photographed countless rusting farm vehicles beside picturesque old barns; and amassed an impressive (but not always appreciated by his loving wife) collection of model cars, books, and towering stacks of car and motorcycle magazines. More than an avocation, cars provided Bob’s livelihood for five decades, most recently at Rockville Porsche/Audi.
Bob seemed to bring out the best in people and cherished his many close friends. More than one considered Bob the kindest man they had ever met.
A celebration of life will take place at 2:00 PM on Sunday, October 17th at the Resthaven Funeral Home & Community Center, 9501 Catoctin Mountain Hwy. in Frederick
