John Francis Brower

September 18, 1933 – May 9, 2017

 

Born on September 18, 1933 in New York City, to Samuel Treadwell Brower and Mary (Burke) Brower, a native of Limerick, Ireland, John was the youngest of their children and the beloved baby of the family. He enjoyed a wonderful childhood in New York City, where he launched a long and rewarding career in sales and advertising. He was a veteran of the United States Air Force. He married Susan Taft in 1965. With a growing family he moved to East Brunswick, NJ in the 1970's where he resided until his passing. Here he developed a love of gardening whose beauty was a gift to his whole family.

 

He is predeceased by his parents Samuel and Mary Brower, his siblings James Brower, William Brower, Margaret Falk and a special niece Janet Thiel. He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years Mary Susan (Taft), his children; son, John Brower and wife Holly of Colorado Springs, Colorado, daughter Courtney Bayne and husband Andrew of Waterford Ireland, his precious grandchildren; Kellan and Holden Brower, and Deirdre, Olivia, and Bronwyn Bayne, and two nephews.

 

A celebration of his life will be held in July in New Jersey, followed by the interment of his ashes in the family plot in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.
