Obituary for DANIEL JOSEPH BROWN

On the evening of Monday, October 31, 20 16, God called one of his
children, Daniel Joseph Brown, to his place of rest. Daniel was the
youngest son born to the late John Wesley and Maggie Ogden Brown of
Willows, MD. Daniel celebrated his 100'" birthday on October 4, 2016.

He was educated in the public schools of Calvert County. As a young
child he moved to Washington D.C. During his teenage years Daniel
returned to Calvert and began working as a cook at the Dowell and
Grover store in St. Leonard, MD. It was during this time he met a lovely
lady named Octavia Gross. On March 22, 193 7, they were united in
holy matrimony and were blessed to be married for 64 years. Daniel and
Octavia were also blessed with eight children from this union. While
living in St. Leonard, Daniel and his family attended St .John's UMC, St.
Luke and Brooks United Methodist Church.

As his family grew, Daniel worked as a farmer and then as a construction
worker. He was a dedicated and excellent provider for his family. He
was promoted to the position of a shop-steward for Local 74 AFL CIO
Labor 's Union. Daily he traveled long distances to various places such as
Fort Belvoir, Virginia; Germantown, 1D and Washington, D.C. He did
this while still farming.

Daniel built a house and moved his family to Sunderland, MD in 1954.
During this time he and his family became members of St. Edmond's
United Methodist Church and then later transferred to Ward's Memorial
united Methodist Church.

Following his retirement at age sixty, Daniel pursued his passion of
fishing. He would travel as far as Florida to go fishing. He also greatly
enjoyed going to the Octlvert Pines Senior Center to play pool. He often
stated that his sons could not beat him at this game.

As a young man Daniel would always say that he would like Lo have
longevity of life and in his nineties; he stated that "He was thankful for
his time and wouldn't take nothing for his journey."

Daniel now rest with those who preceded him in death, his wife Octavia;
sons Larry and Stephen and grandson Larry.
