"I am greatly saddened by the unexpected death of Richard Brown. He worked tirelessly on behalf of Federal employees.
"Rick lived a life of service and leadership, and this is a tragic loss. I only knew Rick for a short time, but his dedication shone through in our work together on issues that matter deeply to Federal employees and working people everywhere.
"He will be forever remembered as a smart, tough, and passionate employee advocate. His family, friends, and colleagues are in my thoughts and prayers."
