Brad was first elected President of the Society in 1999, and he served until his death on Oct 19, 2015. He orchestrated the building and sailing of our shallop, The Elizabeth Tilley, from Plymouth to Augusta, ME, following the same route our ancestor John Howland would have taken. He was an affable and respected leader of the society who was proud of his family history, even writing a book "John and Elizabeth Howland PIlgrims on the Kennebec" last year. Our sympathies are with his wife Christine and the entire Gorham family. For more information on his life and information on services, please read his Obituary.
