Former Boston Celtics owner John Y. Brown passes at age 88

Former Boston Celtics owner and Governor of the state of Kentucky John Y Brown has passed away at the age of 88 after battling complications from COVID-19 according to new reporting from the Lexington (Kentucky) Herald-Leader’s Austin Horn and Janet Patton.

A Democrat governor of Kentucky from 1979 to 1983, Brown was the son of US Rep. John Y. Brown Sr., who also served as Speaker of the Kentucky House and a member of the state legislature for over three decades. An early investor in fast food out of law school, Brown bought Kentucky Fried Chicken with Jack C. Massey for $2 million, selling it in 1973 for $284 million.

The future Kentucky governor would use his proceeds to buy some or all of multiple professional sports teams including not only the Celtics but also the Buffalo Braves and the ABA’s Kentucky Colonels.
