Bobby Joe Brown

Mr. Brown, age 81, died on January 17, 2014 at Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville. Bob was born on May 19, 1932 to William Alexander and Nettie Lou Brown in Belton, SC. He graduated from Belton High School in 1950 and attended the University of Alabama . Bob was a proud member of the United States Air Force. He served during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. His last duty was wing base Sergeant Major of Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, SC where he retired in May 1971. Bob had a wonderful and successful second career of 28 years as the franchise owner of MRI Sales Consultants of Charlotte. Bob is survived by his wife, Peggy; his son, Danny Brown (Tammy) and daughter, Ginger Brown Cox (Michael); his sisters, Mary Clowney (Bill), Pat Coker (Larry); his grandchildren, Matthew Brown, Blayke Brown, Amy Cox Watford (Trent), Kimberly Cox McCorvey (Willis); and two great-grandchildren, Jane and Meg Watford. Bob is preceded in death by his first wife, Jane Harper Brown; his brothers, Jack Brown, Harold “Buster” Brown, John Mack Brown. Bob traveled the world and had wonderful memories of the places he visited. He loved Hawaii and Myrtle Beach, but his home in Charlotte was always called “the most beautiful place in the world”. Bob was known for his funny one-liners and was the life of any gathering. He was a terrific grandfather who enjoyed “scooter-pootin’” and “wheeling and dealing” with the grandchildren. All who knew Bob will miss his generosity and fun-loving spirit. The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Bob’s care team at Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville who ministered to the entire family. A memorial service will take place at 11:00 AM, Monday, January 20, 2014 at McEwen Funeral Service Pineville Chapel, 10500 Park Road, Charlotte, NC. Visitation will take place immediately following the service. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to Loaves & Fishes (704-523-4333 or mail to 648B Griffith Road, Charlotte, NC 28217 or loavesandfishes.org ).

Bob gave many of us an opportunity to work for him at MRI. He was always kind and understanding and had time to help when we needed it. He was thoughtful, generous, sincere, and he will be missed.
