HALL QUARRY, MT. DESERT - Harry E. Brawley Jr., 79, died at home April 5th, 2014 after a two year battle with cancer. He was born in Hagerstown, MD April 22, 1934, the son of Harry E. Brawley Sr. and Mary Paige (Plumley) Brawley. Harry graduated from McDonogh School and Harvard University. He worked for a number of years as an electrical engineer. His entrepreneurial efforts included a company that manufactured smoke monitors, and (with his wife and business partner of 32 years) Sigea Systems, a software company. After moving to Maine they advised local small businesses on a wide spectrum of issues. Harry was introduced to Uechi-Ryu Karate when the Okinawan style was first brought to this country. He continued to practice daily on his own for over 50 years. He always encouraged fitness and health in family, friends and others. He believed his fitness proved invaluable in his final months. He worked out daily until 2 months before his death. His interest in cooking began as a boy scout. He would collect whatever the other scouts brought to the cookout, and concoct something delicious. For the rest of his life he eagerly shared delicious dinners, tips, discoveries and recipes with anyone who was interested, or even others who soon became interested. Not only did he leave people with happy stomachs after each meal, but also with inspiration. Two of his sons were inspired to enter the professional cooking field. A lifetime love of classical music started with a crystal set radio he built as a small boy, and led to homes always full of good music. He loved sailing with his wife, and sailing in Maine inspired their move to Mount Desert in 1994. He will especially miss his Thursday lunches, tackling challenges of any kind, Wagner Operas, interesting books on all subjects and, of course, cooking. Harry is survived by his beloved wife, Ellen (Thorndike); his sons, Harry Brawley III and his wife, Christen of VT, Richard W. Brawley and his wife, Margaret of MA and Daniel U. Brawley and his wife, Stacey of PA, stepchildren, Margaret Rice Jay and her husband, David of MA, Jonathan E. Rice and his wife, Lindsley of MA; his brother, Richard B. Brawley and his wife, JoAnn of NC; twelve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; "local daughter" MJ Penn; special friend, Benjamin Sawyer; and the mother of his children, Barbara Barry. A celebration of his life will be held at a future date. Donations in his memory may be made to Hancock County Home Care and Hospice, PO Box 156, Blue Hill, ME 04614.

Douglas L. Coleman, 82, died April 16, 2014, at his home surrounded by family and friends following a long struggle with cancer. Doug was born Oct. 6, 1931, in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, the son of Leonard J. and Kathleen A. (Martin) Coleman. After attending elementary and secondary school in Stratford, he received a BS in chemistry in 1954 from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. At McMaster, he met the love of his life and future wife, Beverly J. Benallick. He attended graduate school at the University of Wisconsin and received a MS and PhD in 1956 and 1958, respectively. Doug joined the Jackson Laboratory in 1958 as an Associate Staff Scientist with the intention of staying just long enough to learn some genetics and immunology, but soon became devoted to Mount Desert Island and remained at the Jackson Laboratory for his entire career. In both his vocation and avocation, Doug endeavored to leave things better than he found them. Doug's scientific career explored the biochemical pathways through which genes control phenotypic traits. These studies were characterized by the use of simple techniques to answer complex biological problems. Doug identified genes that control enzyme synthesis and degradation and demonstrated that gene dosage can control enzyme quantity and structure. Doug is best known for his studies in obesity and diabetes, which utilized genetic mouse strains developed at the Jackson Laboratory. Through careful cross-circulation studies, he established that a blood-born factor (now known as the hormone leptin) was a critical player the identical phenotypes observed in obese and diabetic mouse mutants. He further hypothesized that the leptin originated in fat cells. These surprising findings - that genes (not behavior) can control obesity and adipose tissue secretes hormones and is an endocrine organ (not a mere storage depot) - were heretical at the time, but are now well-established facts. In recognition of his pioneering research, Doug was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1998 and received a number of prestigious scientific awards. In 1991, Doug entered retirement with the same enthusiasm that he had for his scientific work. With his wife, Bev, who shared his love of the outdoors and concern for the environment, he become active in conservation issues such as open space preservation, forest management and water quality protection. Doug and Bev placed a conservation easement on their 96-acre property in Lamoine, planted trees, constructed nature trails and welcomed the public to share their land. Doug volunteered for many years on both the Board of the Frenchman Bay Conservancy (as member, treasurer and president) and the Lamoine planning board (as a member and chairman). In recognition of their conservation efforts, Doug and Bev received a number of stewardship awards from the State of Maine and the Town of Lamoine. Doug Coleman is survived by a son, David of Kingston, Ontario, a son, Thomas, his wife, Sarah Fashena and their son, Benjamin, all of Mount Kisco, New York. Doug's wife, Bev and a third son, John, predeceased him. Donations in his memory may be made to the Beverly Coleman Memorial Scholarship at the Northeast Harbor Library or the Beverly Coleman Bursary Fund, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
