A True Legacy

Leonard C. Brown Jr.

Leonard C. Brown Jr.

Over the years UUSC has received many thoughtful and generous donations. Sometimes we are fortunate to be included in a donor's will. Leonard C. Brown Jr. is someone special who did just that.

Born in 1925, Brown was married for more than 40 years to his wife, Constance Cauthers Brown, and had a son and two grandchildren. Although he had an engineering degree, he spent most of his career in sales and marketing for General Electric. Even after he retired, he worked on a consulting basis. His son, Doug, says that anyone who met Brown knew about his passion for jazz. Brown didn't just love jazz; he researched and gave presentations about it to share his passion.

A Unitarian Universalist for more than 50 years, Brown was a member of the UU Congregation in Westport, Conn. It was important to him that his UU values be put into action to advance human rights and social justice around the world - even when he was no longer around. That's why he made the deliberate and thoughtful act of including UUSC in his estate plans.

UUSC is grateful to be able to defend workers' rights, promote the human right to water, uphold civil liberties, and protect rights in humanitarian crisis. We are also excited to offer youth and young adults hands-on service-learning experiences through the UU College of Social Justice. And we recognize that all of that work is possible because of loyal supporters like Brown.
