Sadly we announce the passing of our Board Treasurer, the Honorable Darryl N. Brown ’66, ’69G.

“Darryl was an outstanding leader who understood the importance of philanthropy to the University of Maine’s future,” said Foundation President Jeffery Mills. “He was a vocal advocate for UMaine and its value to our state and residents. Darryl was a dedicated and effective board leader, one widely admired throughout the state. We extend our deepest sympathies to Penny and to all of Darryl’s family and friends.”

Darryl served the Foundation and the University in many capacities over the years, and was the only board chair to serve three times; 1998-1999, 2008-2009 and 2012-2013. He was the Foundation Board’s treasurer at the time of his passing, and had previously served as its secretary.

Gifts in Darryl’s memory may be made to the Darryl and Penny Brown Scholarship held at the University of Maine Foundation.
