W. Micque Brown EUP Professor Emeritus W. Micque Brown, age 77, died Saturday, June 28, 2008, at his residence after a short illness. He was born May 1, 1931, in Erie, the son of the late James Rosby Brown, Jr. and Dorothy McLeod Brown. He graduated from East High School, class of 1949, and was employed at Erie General Electric after completing the apprentice course there. He continued his education at Penn State Behrend and completed his Bachelor's degree at Edinboro State College. He taught for several years in the Millcreek school system, and then earned his Master's degree in Physical Science from Syracuse University. He was a physics professor at Edinboro State College/University for 28 years before retiring in 1991. While at Edinboro, he served as president of EUP-APSCUF, the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculty, from 1973 through 1975. Micque and his wife, Barb, lived in their motor home for 14 years after retirement, traveling throughout the lower 48 states as well as Alaska, Canada and Mexico. In recent years they were "snowbirds," spending winters in Arizona, where they lived at the Escapees R V Club North Ranch development. An avid photographer, Micque was particularly interested in digital photography and in teaching "Photoshop" software classes. He did extensive genealogical research, finding family records dating to the early 1600's. Survivors include his wife of 27 years, Barbara (Wilson) Brown, three children: Sheri Campbell and her husband, Jack, of Erie, Dr. Michael W. Brown, of Erie, Alison Julius and her husband, Mark, of Painesville, OH, and five grandchildren: Oveida Burgos, Carli Hoehn, Hayden Julius, Maggie Julius, and Anthony Julius.
