Sad news comes from the Miss Albany Diner Facebook page of the passing on Monday of Clifford Brown, retired owner of the Miss Albany Diner. He died at home, and funeral arrangements and a memorial service are to be announced soon.
According to Mr. Brown’s wishes, the diner will remain open. He is survived by his wife Jane and his son Bill, who cooks at the restaurant.
To me, Mr. Brown was a friendly, funny man who ran a great diner and always fed me well and made me welcome there. I will miss him.
