Funeral Services & Interment will be held privately for William J. “Bill” Brown, who died on Wednesday, June 3rd at his daughter’s home in East Boston, following a 2-year battle with Lung Cancer, he was 60 years old.

Bill was born in Malden and later moved with his family to Chelsea. He attended both Malden & Chelsea Public Schools. Through the years, they also lived in Everett & Revere. Bill had an instinctive ability to work with his hands. Right after high school he began to work in construction. Most of his life he worked & mastered HVAC, but he never limited himself to just one trade. His skill set was limitless. He did it all; carpentry, plumbing & home remodeling. He was a very hard worker devoted to his family. Bill, although he worked hard, he maintained his motto of living one day at a time & enjoying each one. Bill was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer approximately 2 years ago, but his relentless will to live, didn’t stop him. The COVID-19 pandemic is what made Bill stop working, otherwise, he would have worked on until he was forced to stop. Bill loved his family & being around them. He was an avid reader & enjoyed doing crossword puzzles. He had a fascination with Military Documentaries & Movies, as well as westerns. His other passion was Revere beach and swimming there. Bill will be remembered as being a man with a good heart & keen sense of humor.  On Behalf of Bill’s Family, they would like to acknowledge the wonderful care & treatment he received at the M.G.H Cancer Center.
