Richard Neil (Dick) Brown, 87, of Carlisle, MA, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018 surrounded by his loving family.

He attained his Master’s Degree from M.I.T. while he was employed there. He went to work for the U.S. Air Force Geophysics Laboratory at Hanscom Air Force Base in 1967 and retired in 1993.

Dick and his wife Clare have spent many wonderful years in Carlisle. Dick enjoyed skiing and playing tennis in his younger years.
