BARNARD — A service to celebrate the life of Sheldon H. Brown III, 55, who passed away at this home in the early hours of Thursday, June 21, 2012 will be held at the Barnard UU Church at 2 p.m. on Saturday July, 14 with a reception to follow.
He was born on December 20, 1955, son of Sheldon H. Brown Jr and Patricia Mulhern Brown in New Town Square, Pennsylvania. Sheldon spent his childhood in Westport, CT.
At 17, as an upper classman at Staples High School, Sheldon founded his first company Nulli Secundus. Second to none, Sheldon strived not only to provide a superior quaintly of work, but understood the importance of running a customer satisfaction biased business.
From a very young age, Sheldon realized he wanted to fly planes. Although his vision prevented this dream from ever being a reality, in 1979, he joined the United States Air Force as a medic. After four years of service, Sheldon returned to New England where he met and married his wife, Sally Jane Brown.
After having two children, Abigail and Zachariah, Sheldon moved his family to Vermont where he later graduated from the Vermont Law School. After experiencing the joys of parenting, Sheldon made the decision that he did not want to miss their childhood by sitting behind a desk. He wanted to help with homework, coach little league, and make it to every basketball game. He always put his children fist, and was willing to sacrificing everything to ensure their wellbeing. In addition to being with his family, Sheldon was a voracious reader, a music enthusiast, and loved to spend time outdoors.
Sheldon is survived by his children, Abigail and Zachariah; ex-wife Jane Moore of Concord NH; his mother Patricia of Norwalk CT; and two sisters Karan Sywloski of Charleston SC, and Noel Brown of Allendale, NJ.

Dear Abi and Zac,
Your father and the both of you have a special place in my heart. I have such fond memories of the fun times we shared, especially enjoying the love Sheldon had for the both of you. Sheldon was one of the most enthusiastic, fun, and sensitive individuals I have ever known. Know that he is very much alive, present in the now, and free without the constraints of living in a human body. Continue talking, loving, laughing, and living with him in your life as he will be by your side always and forever. You are blessed by your dad’s immeasurable love.
