James “Tiny” Brown, 81, founder of Pembroke, Mass.-based based Tiny and Sons Auto Glass passed away on July 27, 2016.
“Tiny began working for Pittsburgh Plate Glass in Boston in 1959,” said his son, Peter Brown, who serves as vice president of Tiny and Sons, in an article that ran in the May/June 2015 edition of AGRR™ magazine. “Tiny worked for a few local auto glass companies for a few years. In the late 1960s, his family grew to five children—two girls and three boys. To help support his growing family, he started a used auto glass business on the weekend that he and his three sons worked on.”
Brown is survived by three sons: James M. Brown II, Peter L. Brown, who now runs the business, and Edward of Middleboro. He is also survived by two daughters: Theresa Brown and Susan Rossi; a brother, Robert Brown; 12 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
