A well-known resident of Montauk for over 80 years, Eileen Eleanor (Ellie) Prado, died at her house on Essex Street on Friday, surrounded by family members. Her son Marshall Prado Jr. gave the cause of death as old age. Mrs. Prado was 89.
Lawrence E. Brown, a master wood refinisher, died on Oct. 6 at home in Sag Harbor. He was 71 and had suffered from Parkinson’s disease for more than 20 years, his wife, Gloria D. Brown, said.
A New York City native, Mr. Brown was a resident of Sag Harbor for the last 23 years. He had retired in 1990, and the restoration of his house became his passion after moving to Sag Harbor full time in 1998. “That’s what he really spent his time doing,” she said.
