Brian John Upton
Brian John Upton, 70, passed away on May 29, 2016, at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack. Brian was born on January 2, 1946, in Lowell, MA, the son of the late Myron and Flora (Brown) Upton.
Brian leaves his best friend and wife of 46 years, Dee.
Brian was the essential “quiet man,” whose wry comments and subtle smile showed a sense of humor that friends and family enjoyed. Above all, Brian was a man of integrity, sensitivity and strength of character. These attributes were a constant in both his family life and his workplaces. Brian grew up in Dunstable, MA, and later went on to attend Lowell High School. Brian also spent time at Colorado State University. After his time in college, Brian went on to work for Edgecomb Steel, Digital Equipment Corporation and later as a Pennichuck Water supervisor. Brian also spent his time working at his son’s business, Frank’s Roofing.
Brian was a talented carpenter who did exceptional work remodeling many homes with his wife, Dee. His favorite pastime, though, was riding his
Harley-Davidson motorcycle. During his youth he enjoyed horseback riding and participating in many
western-styled events, which led to many trophies and ribbons. Playing softball, skiing, hiking and camping were other favorite activities Brian enjoyed.
Along with his parents, Brian was predeceased by his sister, Loretta Bissell.
Besides his wife Dee, he is also survived by his son Frank Krahenbuhl and his wife Elizabeth; his daughter Lisa A. Krahenbuhl; his grandchildren, Teddy, Erik and Kirsten; his brother Kenneth Upton; sister-in-law Janet Upton; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
