Judge Clarke C. Brown, Sr.
June 11, 1921 – August 1, 2010

Clarke C. Brown was born on June 11, 1921 to Ingram and Ethel (Cutler) Brown of Clatskanie, Oregon, where he was raised and attended grade school and high school.
He was a four-year letterman in basketball, football and track. In his senior year, he was selected on the League All-Star team in basketball. He later attended the University of Oregon and joined the U.S. Naval Reserve on January 15, 1941. He served in the South Pacific and was released from active duty on September 30, 1945.
Judge Brown was recalled to active duty where he was assigned duty on USS Orleck (DD886) during the Korean affair and in Naval Intelligence with the staff of the 17th Naval Commandant.
Prior to his recall, he graduated from Willamette University with a B.S. degree and Willamette College of Law in 1948 with a Doctor of Jurisprudence Degree. Brown was the senior partner in the law firm of Brown, Schlegel, Bennett and Milbank in Salem, which later grew into an eight-person firm. Judge Brown was appointed to the Circuit Court Bench in Marion County and retired in 1987. In Salem he served on numerous boards andcommittees. He was also a Director of Illahe Hills Country Club. Upon his retirement, he and his wife, Virginia J. Brown, (deceased 2006), lived in Chapala, Mexico for eight years prior to their moving to Redmond in 1991.
Judge Brown is survived by two daughters, Gail E. DuBois (Edward), Corvallis, Oregon and Jennifer E. Welborn (John), Salem, Oregon. He is also survived by three stepchildren, Garfield McFadyen, Ottowa, Canada;
Kathleen Cooke, Oregon City; and Marsha L. Bailey (Jack) Walla Walla, Washington. He is also survived by 10 grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
Judge Brown was a life-long member of the Presbyterian Church in Clatskanie, Salem and Redmond. He was both an active and honorary member of Juniper Golf Club, including serving as president of the club.
Judge and Mrs. Brown were active supporters of St. Jude’s Hospital for children among many other philanthropic groups.
Judge Brown was also noted for quietly helping people who were down in their luck and for his undying love for his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He enjoyed his golf, was a better than average fly-fisherman and considered himself one of the luckiest and most devoted persons for having his family and friends. He was known as
a “tough” judge but friendly, kind and considerate. He was a gentleman of the “old school.”
He was appreciative of his neighbors, Christy and Ron Totorica, and their daughters, (whom he considered as grandkids), Hallie and Amaia; Mary and Lew Palmer, Jan and Doug Ayles and all who were of great assistance
to him when his abilities started to fade.
Judge Brown considered his physician, Dr. Mark Sternfeld, as not only a doctor but a friend. He was also grateful to Dr. E. Young as well as Dr. Keith Sides of Cinder Rock Veterinary Clinic who kept his close companion “Bo” (a beautiful golden retriever) fit. “Bo” slept nowhere but beside the Judge. Both the Judge and “Bo” had a true and mutual love for each other.
Judge Brown was still in love with his deceased wife, Virginia, until the day of his death.
Judge Brown was proceeded in death by his parents and only sibling, Lamont Brown, all of Clatskanie.
At his request, no services will be held.
