So sorry to hear of his death. I remember his parents attending Smith Chapel with the children who were near our ages at the time. Our father Rev. Melvin Brown was pastor and we use to all play together and worship together. Prayers going out from all of the Browns, there are now 8 children, that you will have peace in your heart that he is in a better place. Much love,

JoAn Brown Howerton
for the Rev. and Mrs. Melvin Brown family.

Awesome mechanic, great friend, animal lover, and much more. I've only met a couple of people in my life that can listen to a motor and tell you what is going on and he was one of them. To his family, I am sorry for your loss.
