Brian Carl Bronson, 59: sports fan, loved to learn

BRUNSWICK — Brian Carl Bronson, 59, of Brunswick, died unexpectedly Jan. 30.

Born May 27, 1953, in North Tonawanda, N.Y., to Frank and Louise Bronson, he spent his early childhood in New York. He moved to Bath as a teenager and graduated Morse High School in the class of 1973.

After graduation, Bronson joined the U.S. Army, proudly serving for four years. When he returned, he began working at Bath Iron Works, where he was employed for over 20 years before changing his career and working as a machine operator at Owens Corning. 

Bronson had a love of learning, and was always studying and doing research in order to better understand how things worked. His passions were religion and history, and he was the man to ask questions about United States military history.

He also was a sports enthusiast, following all sports but especially fond of baseball and the Yankees. 

He is remembered as a great man with a kind heart, and those who loved him will miss him dearly.

Bronson was predeceased by his parents and a nephew, Michael Lawrence. He leaves behind his brothers, David Bronson and his wife, Kathy, and Terry Bronson and his wife, Susan; his sisters, Lisa Lawrence, Kerry Nelson and her husband, Fred, Mary Bronson, and Laura Hutchins and her husband, Mark; and many nieces and nephews.

The family has requested that memorial donations in Bronson's name be sent to the American Heart Association, 51 U.S. Route 1, Suite M, Scarborough, ME 04740.

At Bronson's request there will be no services at this time. A graveside service will be held in the spring at Oak Grove Cemetery, Bath.
