Glenn A. Brown, Jr., BHS 1973

Glenn A. Brown, Jr. Esq.

October 1, 1955 to March 1, 2012

Glenn was a beloved son, brother, uncle and a graduate of Burbank High School ’73, UCLA 78, B.A in History, Loyola Law School ’82 J.D., Cum Laude. As a young person he achieved the honor of Eagle Scout and enjoyed playing the trumpet in the Burbank High School marching band. At UCLA he participated on the debate team, became an avid UCLA sports fan and created life-long friendships.

For the past 30 years, Glenn was engaged in all phases of litigation, arbitration, mediation and settlement. He served at Wasserman, Comden and Casselman from 1987-2002 (achieving partner in 1997). He was an Arbitrator with LA Superior Courts since 1988, a Mediator with LA Superior Court and an Attorney Settlement Officer with US District Court.

His passion was UCLA athletics which inspired him to create the PowderKegBlue.com website – that contains many of his photos of UCLA athletics. He noted that the heartbeat of the site was to give a perspective of a Bruin athletic event as seen by a UCLA fan from pre-game, game and post-game activities.

He is survived by his parents, Martha & Glenn Brown, sisters Carol Chapman and Wendy Day-Brown, nieces Marissa & Kia Chapman and nephew Tyler Day Dykhuizen. Glenn was preceded in death by his niece Hillary Chapman and brother-in-law Charles Chapman.

Good-bye Glenn, we miss you.

A Memorial service was held on March 9, 2012 at Pierce Brothers Mortuary in North Hollywood. Donations in Glenn’s memory can be made to the Wooden Athletic Fund at UCLA.

  1. Safe Passage My Friend.

    Glenn was my debate partner and my friend while at BHS. Always the scholar, Glenn did top-notch research. I'm not at all surprised that he became a successful and respected arbitrator and litigator. The world is a lesser place with his passing.

    Glenn was my debate partner in the Fall semester of 1972. I learned so very much from Glenn and am grateful that God placed him in my life at such a critical time (as I was a sophomore and he was a senior). May his memory be eternal.
