In Memoriam: Kenneth A. Brighton

Kenneth A. Brighton
Kenneth A. Brighton of Peterborough died recently at the RiverMead Retirement Community. He was 92.

Born and raised in Peterborough, Brighton was a graduate of the University of New Hampshire. He earned his law degree at the University of Michigan Law School. He was a veteran of World War II.

Brighton was admitted to the NH Bar in 1948 and returned to Peterborough to open a law office. He was a founding partner of Brighton, Fernald, Taft & Falby in Peterborough and later served of counsel to Brighton, Runyon & Callahan.

In 1963, Brighton was appointed to the bench as a district court judge and served until his retirement in 1988.

He was active in his community, serving as a member of the Cheney-Armstrong Post of the American Legion, and was a charter member of the Lions Club.

He is survived by daughter, Susan; sons, Kenneth and John; and eight grandchildren.

In honor of our colleague Kenneth A. Brighton, the NH Bar Association Board of Governors has made a donation to the NH Bar Foundation, 2 Pillsbury Street, Suite 300, Concord, NH 03301.
