James Harold “Jim” Brown Obituary, Death

Beloved husband, father and grandfather James “Jim” Harold Brown, 80, of Mountain Top, passed into eternal life quietly Monday, Jan. 24, 2022, in Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, where he was a patient for the past seven days. He is survived by his loving wife, Violet Santioni Brown. The couple were to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on June 16. Born in Moosic on April 27, 1941, he was the son of the late Harold J. and Ethel Decker Brown. Jim was a graduate of the former Moosic High School, Class of 1958. He then attended Wilkes College before Spring Garden, Philadelphia, where he studied electrical engineering.

He worked for several firms in the Philadelphia area before working for Litton Industries, based out of California, as a quality control engineer. At Litton, his clientele spanned from the Mississippi southeast to the Bahamas. Upon retirement, Jim worked for nearly two decades at Mohegan Sun Pocono and the Hilton Garden Inn. Jim loved traveling with his family, visiting beaches all over the map. He will certainly be missed.
