George A. Brown

Of Newton, November 10, 2021, age 93, after a long illness. Born to Ben and Ann Brown on March 10, 1928, in Roxbury, MA. He was the oldest of three siblings, predeceased by his brother Leonard. George was a longtime resident of Newtonville where he resided with his wife Jane. Loving father of Caroline Greenblatt of Framingham and Abby Brown of Weston. Grandfather of Andrew and Zachary Greenblatt. George attended Boston Latin School, Harvard University and Harvard Law School. He served two years as a Marine during the Korean War, and on his return worked as a lawyer for the Thomas Joyce Law Firm. George went on to sell mutual funds, and a few years later founded Brown and Company, the first discount brokerage company. This company was the highlight of George’s life and the business grew to 16 branches. George’s wit and wisdom permeated this endeavor, and his dry sense of humor was displayed when he played the part of Max the Trader. His staff was encouraged to feel that they worked with him, not for him. George was a kind and gentle man. A private funeral service was held for the family. Shiva will be held at his late residence on Friday from 3pm-5pm, Saturday, 1pm – 4pm, and Sunday 1pm – 4pm.
