Mr. Brown was born July 14, 1940 to the late Jacob and Verna Brown in Columbus, GA. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army, and was retired from Civil Service at Ft. Benning after many years of service.
Our dad was a stubborn old man, a fighter, too independent and never wanted anyone to make a fuss over him, but we did. The past six months have been trying and difficult, especially for our aunt and his daughter. Thursday, our dad met the peace and comfort that has for so long escaped him. It’s comforting for us to know he is no longer in pain or suffering, but is now with peace and in a better place. We love you, dad.
Survivors include his four daughters, Shanna Brown of Columbus, GA, Bobbie James of Millbrook, AL, Christy Ladner of Columbus, GA and Alicia Lawrence of Oceanside, CA; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and other family.
