the sad passing of Costa Brava's Doug Brown

If you've spent any time in Costa Brava you've likely had the pleasure of meeting our neighbor, Doug Brown. This afternoon I was saddened to learn of his tragic passing. Doug was full of life and almost always moving at 100 miles an hour. I'll remember his high energy, warm spirit and his love for his family. I can hardly recall a conversation with him when he didn't talk about his family. It was clear that they were the joy of his life. My thoughts and prayers are with them as they mourn the loss of Doug and his brother, Daniel. 

Bloomingdale has lost a good neighbor and friend, Costa Brava has lost its most enthusiastic advocate and the Brown family has lost a most loving son, brother, father and uncle. Doug will be missed dearly. 

Rest well, my friend.

LUSBY, Md. (AP) — Two swimmers who went missing off of Cove Point beach in the Chesapeake Bay are believed to have drowned.

Calvert County sheriff’s officials say the two men apparently entered deep water and became tired of swimming against the tide. The two brothers were swimming with a juvenile who was able to make it to shore safely.

Witnesses told police the two men disappeared beneath the water’s surface. Police identified the men as 37-year-old Daniel Brown of Lusby and 39-year-old Douglas Brown of Mechanicsville.

This story has been corrected to show the 39-year-old man’s first name is Douglas Brown, not Daniel Brown.

They were identified as Daniel J. Brown, 37, of Lusby and his brother Douglas H. Brown, 39, of Mechanicsville, Md. A spokesman for the sheriff’s office said the body found was that of Daniel Brown.
