There are condolences waiting approval on CLINTON's Tribute wall

Clinton Raymond Brown was born on February 11, 1963 to Francis L. Brown, Sr., and the late Deloris M. (Brown) Hayes in Prince Frederick, Maryland. He departed this life on Sunday, September 5, 2010.
Clinton was educated in the Calvert County and Uniondale New York Public Schools. He was a graduate of Northern High School Class of 1981. He joined the United States Army on June 17, 1981 and remained enlisted until his retirement in October 2001. He would fondly state that he served 20 years, 3 months and 14 days in the Army.
Clinton received specialty training for the following military assignments: Signal Support Systems Specialist, Tactical Communications Systems Operator, Army Recruiter, Senior Drill Sergeant/Platoon Sergeant and Noncommissioned Officers Training.
He retired at the rank of E8 "Master Sergeant" and received numerous commendations to include the Army's Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development Ribbon with Numeral 3, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Army (Retired) Lapel Button, Marksman Badge, Driver and Mechanic Badge, Drill Sergeant Identification Badge and Gold Recruiter Badge. The distinguished and honorable service he rendered to the country and community will have an enduring impact on all those his work and life touched.
After being honorably discharged from the United States Army in 2001, Clinton began to teach Army JROTC in the Swainsboro Public Schools System from (2001-2003) and Baltimore City Public Schools System from (2003-2010). Clinton and his colleague, Major Colbert, were instrumental in implementing the JROTC Program at Southside Academy. Clinton dedicated many hours to the JROTC Program. He would often be seen in the hallways of "Southside Academy" asking the students "what are we doing and where are you supposed to be." He was always willing to lend a help-in-hand to those in need. Clinton worked hard at everything he put his hands to and could master anything. He was always a steadfast and diligent worker. His love for teaching JROTC went well beyond measure.
Clinton received an Associates of Arts Degree from Central Texas College in 2004 and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Multidisciplinary Studies from Liberty University in May 2010. Clinton was pursuing a Master's of Education Degree and would have graduated in May 2011 from Liberty University. His goal was to become an administrator.
Clinton attended St. Edmonds United Methodist Church at a young age and later became a member of Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia where he was baptized. After relocating to Maryland Clinton joined Greater Mt. Nebo AME Church, but also attended St. Edmonds United Methodist Church.
In 2005, Clinton was united in holy matrimony to Jackie R. Gray by Rev. Peggy J. Jobe at Greater Mt. Nebo AME Church.
He and his wife took great pleasure in opening their home up to family and friends. His famous "ribs, specialty drinks and bread pudding" were the highlight of each event but he would not share his recipes. He was a devoted family man and enjoyed cooking and entertaining especially being the "MC" of all events he attended. Once he got the microphone there was no getting it back. The most notable event was their "Annual Mother's Day" cookout, which was a day set aside for the past 3 years to honor all mothers. Clinton was an avid Redskins and sports fan but also spent time riding his Harley Davidson, golfing, playing pool and attending race-car events. He welcomed a conversation about any sport and would wear the "Redskins" burgundy and gold with pride. His favorite saying was "this train is moving forward and you can get on board if you want to."
