In Memoriam, Steve Brown

Dear friends,

It is with great sadness and grief that we must share the news that Steve Brown has passed away. Steve died  February 19, at the age of 60.

Steve will long be remembered for his tireless work to bring equality and fairness to LGBT Kansans. He was the founding president of the Kansas Democratic Party’s LGBT Caucus, was a founding member of the Kansas Equality Coalition, and until his death served as the Chairman of KEC’s Northeast Kansas chapter. In addition to his work in Kansas, Steve has worked with a number of Missouri LGBT organizations over the years.

Memorial services will be held tomorrow at 2:30pm, February 21, at Congregation Beth Torah, 6100 West 127th Street, in Overland Park. Steve’s family has asked that contributions in his name be made to Congregation Beth Torah. Their website is http://www.beth-torah.org/

Steve was a close friend to many of us, and he will be greatly missed.
