Obituary for FRANCIS L. BROWN

Francis Landon Brown, Sr. was born in Calvert County Maryland on July 13, 1933 to the late Velvet and Ethel O. Brown. He departed this life on September 13, 2016 at Heritage Harbour Health and Rehabilitation Center after a brief illness.

Francis attended the public schools of Calvert County, Maryland. Francis was a member of St. Edmonds United Methodist Church. He was affectionately known as "Poly, Pop-pop, Grandpa, and Mr. Brown" and was a multi-talented individual who built many structures in various locations, to include the Light House and homes at Bennett Point on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. He was often referred to as one of Calvert counties best brick layers and trained many others, including his sons and nephews. Francis was employed with Calvert Masonry during the late 60s and built over 200 homes in Prince George's County. Francis owned his own construction company in partnership with Benjamin Coleman, for many years they built homes throughout Calvert County including the Highland Development and many other areas.

Francis had a remarkable memory and was a great story teller. He often spoke of building his moms first home, caring for his younger siblings and his love for family. He got such a kick out of telling his stories that many others could not help but have fun with them too. He loved watching sports, playing cards and going to the horse races.

Francis leaves to cherish his memories: one son, Eldrick P. Brown, Sr.; two daughters, Marion Oliver and Joyce Irene Brooks; two daughters-in-law, Dalphine and Jackie Brown; grandchildren, Joe, Eldrick, Jr., Dustin, Kendra, Lisa, Tonya, Donnell and Edwin; great-grandchildren, Emir, Zirah, A'Mirah, Darnesha, Shabria, Alont'e, Alexis, Shania, Takori and Komari; great-great grandchildren; De'Sean, Daniyah and Dacarri; siblings, Melvin (Virginia), Maurice, Christopher Brown, Helen Brooks, Pastor Violet Jones, Jessie Morsell (Herman), Ethel Lou Morsell, Bertha Parker and Gladys Smith (William); one uncle, Daniel Brown; sister-in-law, Mary Brown; special friend, Kate Colby (40 year friendship); Goddaughter, Chertanna Gray; special friends, Joseph Jones, Sr., James Jacks, Sr., James Jacks, Jr., and a host of other relatives and close friends.

Brown; three brother-in- laws, Charles Brooks, Sherman Morsell and Wesley Jones; grandson, Demetrius; and special friends, Kermit Gray and Theodore Gross preceded him in death.
