Greg Brown Obituary

     Greg Brown, a man of remarkable wit and intelligence, passed away peacefully at his residence in Valley, Alabama, on January 22, 2024. Born on June 8, 1963, in Atlanta, Georgia, Greg was a vibrant soul whose laughter and presence filled every room. He was a beloved father, son, and brother, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories.

     Greg is survived by his adoring children, Jessica Yang (Shawn), Brandon Brown, and Chris Brown, who will forever hold dear the lessons and love their father imparted. He was a guiding light in their lives, instilling in them the values of independence and humor. Greg's memory will also be treasured by his parents, Leon D. Brown and Phyllis S. Brown, and his brother, Harold J. Brown. His spirit is reunited with his late wife, Lisa Chastain Brown, and brother, Raymond Brown, who preceded him in death.

     An excellent artist, Greg's drawings were not only a testament to his talent but also a window into his soul. His love for working on cars was matched only by his skill, and many will remember the joy he took in bringing old engines back to life. Greg's hands were rarely still, as he was a consummate handyman, always ready to lend his expertise to friends and family in need.

     Greg's love for classic rock music was as much a part of him as his infectious laugh. He was fiercely independent, a trait that served him well throughout his life and endeared him to all who knew him. His sense of humor was unparalleled, and he was known to be a bit loud at times, but always in the spirit of good fun. Greg was often right, even on the rare occasions when he was wrong, and his confidence was both endearing and admirable.

     An ardent fan of Auburn University, Greg's loyalty to his team was unwavering. His intelligence shone through in every aspect of his life, from his quick wit to his problem-solving skills. Greg was the embodiment of the words funny, intelligent, and handy, and these attributes will be remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

     As we say goodbye to Greg Brown, we celebrate a life lived with passion and purpose. His memory will continue to inspire those he leaves behind, and his spirit will live on in the stories told and retold by those who loved him. Rest in peace, Greg, and thank you for the laughter, the music, and the countless memories.
