Mr. Brown was a wonderful man, and he was our neighbor. We had been there when he and his wife would travel to Vegas during winters and would take care of his yard. He was like a grandpa to our kids and if he did need something we always lended a hand. Great memories of sitting on the front porch as he plays the violin and our daughter would dance when she was little. He always packed a bag of his famous peanut butter cookies and on occasion we would have a front yard homemade ice cream and cookies. When we moved it was with a heavy heart to tell him. And when we come home to visit we would always surprise him. Thankful all of cake home before leaving our youngest in Lubbock and we were all there to surprise him one last time. He was full of tears of joy as we were. We will forever cherish the moments we got to be a part of your life. And your gardening skills you passed on to myself. There will never be such a wonderful man as he was and he will be deeply missed by my family as he was a big part of our lives and watched my family grow. We love you and we know you at home and at peace.

My heart is heavy tonight after reading this obit. Alfred was one of the best. I always enjoyed his visits to our family reunion (A.E. (Aus) & Annie Brown)
He will be missed by many.
I am one of his many cousins.
