One thought on “Davenport remembers Thomas Brown, PhD

  1. Tom was a good man. And he was the epitome of the quintessential College Dean. He was thoughtful and big picture focused. He had a sense of humor that was at once disarming and just plain funny.

    His service to Davenport University was remarkable and had a huge positive impact that I think most people fail to understand. Tom did not look for attention or credit for what he accomplished; he just went about his business.

    God Bless Tom. Condolences to his family.
