James Albert Brown Jr., passed away on Monday, April 15 , 2019. Born on September 27, 1952 in Ann Arbor, Michigan to the late James and Dorothy.

Beloved husband of Wendy. Cherished dad of James III, Katherine, Samuel, Matthew, Andrew and Rachel. Known as Papa J to his 9 loving grandchildren. Also survived by his step-mother Marcella Brown and many close friends.

Most known as Jim, Jimmy, Jason, or J, he can be described as a carefree hippy of the 60s. He loved the outdoors and always wanted to see the redwoods in California (it was on his bucket list). He could hear the call of a bird and tell you the type of bird, describe its appearance, and inform you when it arrived to the United States. Jim was a huge history buff as you can tell. He thought he would have made a great Viking and very much enjoyed the Renaissance Festival.

His favorite saying : "If it is knowledge that will not bring you monetary gains, I have it."

Visitation will be on Saturday, April 20 from 12-6pm with a funeral service beginning at 6pm at Harry J. Will Funeral Home, Wayne.

Jim was the first one to have a car and we were all friends called hippies and flower children. We loved concerts and Jim collected guitar picks which he got from the musicians. We had to spare change gas money because Jim would give us all a ride to Syracuse NY we spent many weekends there for on and off for a year was college life and music and fun was the folk scene and we loved being the street people. Jim only one with close family spent many visits with his aunt and enjoyed the house on geddes rd. Lots of land and his family like the show the waltons good people always caring and a very talented brother he loved very much. This memory from 1968 and on as I have been his friend for 50 years. We believed in peace and love we were real hippies and were real my generation and here is a hug dear friend!
