Alan Simon Brown, MD SchenectadyAlan Simon Brown, MD, died at his residence in Charlton, NY on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, at the age of 60. A retired doctor of radiology, he later turned to a passion for home design, hobby farming and master gardening and was committed to helping people and humane treatment of animals. Born in Schenectady, NY he was the son of Edwin and Judith (Simon) Brown. Alan was a graduate of Linton High School and completed his undergraduate degree at Clark University. Alan then went on to Brown University Medical School and did his residency at Montefiore Medical Center in NYC and a Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. He practiced medicine for many years in Massachusetts and invented and held patents for medical devices. Alan's brilliance was multi-faceted; as one of his closest friends would say, he was a Renaissance Man. Beyond his medical career and scientific interests, he had a stewardship of land he owned and cherished, he was an athlete, played several musical instruments and was a creative illustrator. Alan always took the time to really know his friends and if anyone had medical or personal issues to discuss he was a consummate listener. He helped people with their concerns, facilitating good solutions. Alan leaves his mother, Judy Brown; three brothers, David (Joan) Brown of Niskayuna, NY, Steven (Patty) Brown of Loudonville, NY, Jeffrey (Jessica) Brown of Atlanta, GA; and a sister, Marci (Anthony) Jackson of Longmeadow, MA; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He also leaves his loving companion, Carol Miriam Wolff; close friends, Linda Guinipero, Darren and Renae Herbinger, Terry Searson Sr. and many others. He will be missed by all. To honor his life a graveside service will be held at 12 noon on Sunday, May 20, 2012 at Beth Shalom Cemetery, Schermerhorm St., Rotterdam, NY. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Glen Highland Farm, 217 Pegg Rd. Morris, NY 13808, NY or Doctors Without Borders, 333 7th Ave., New York, NY 10001-5004.

Alan Brown was in my Cub Scout den, and Judy Brown was our den mother.  She took us places nobody else would, so that we could learn what the world was really like and make our own informed decisions.  Alan was allergic to a great many foods, and his fellow Cub Scouts had no problem with that.  The solution was simple.  Whenever we went on field trips or camping trips, we let him buy the food.
