Christopher J. Brown


Christopher J. Brown, 72, of Reagan Drive, Rochester, NH, passed away on November 22, 2021 at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston following his lengthy and complicated illness. He was the husband of Patricia A. Blaisdell of Rochester, NH.

Christopher was born in Gloucester on March 19, 1949 son of the late Manuel and Everetta (Oliver) Brown. He was raised in Gloucester and was a 1967 graduate of Gloucester High School. Following their marriage, the Brown’s made their home in Essex for the next twenty-three years, briefly lived in Rowley and then Rochester for the past seventeen years. During many of these years he was employed at Avnet in Peabody and more recently as a personal limousine driver.

Chris was much loved by his family and many friends. He was always ready with a smile, a laugh, or a really great story, whether it was the blizzard of ‘78 disaster relief, or his Goofy impressions. Those who knew and loved him will forever remember his quick wit, easy laugh, and his ability to calm all those around him. Chris selflessly dedicated the last years of his life to the upbringing and care of his youngest son, Andrew. Chris was an incredibly devoted father. He not only provided a loving home for Andrew, but he skillfully created an environment that was customized to his son and his needs. He leaves a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. His family and friends will remember him with love for the rest of their days. He was a proud Army National Guard veteran.

I addition to his wife Patricia he is survived by a daughter, Jennifer Brown of Salem, two sons, Andrew Brown of Rochester, NH and Michael Weeks of Salem, four grandchildren, Tyler, DJ, Izabella and Maico, and several nephews and nieces.  He was the brother of the late Stephen Brown and Sheila Brown Dunton, both formerly of Gloucester.
