Obituary for RAYMOND BROWN

When Brother Raymond Brown was born, what joy must have filled the hearts of Lemuel and Letha Brown, his happy parents. Mr. Brown was born on October 17, 1928 in Ridgeville, South Carolina and married to Beatrice. “Ray Brown”, as he was called by his friends and those who came to know him was a loving, generous, helpful, funny, considerate and compassionate human being.

Mr. Brown was gifted with mechanical skills and the use of his hands. One might use the term, “good Samaritan”, to describe Ray Brown, for he helped many a traveler along the highway to get their cars started, so that they could continue on their journey.

From 1959 to 1986, Ray Brown used his skills to keep the brown trucks of United Parcel Service (UPS) rolling. The UPS drivers did not want any other mechanic to answer their road calls, but Ray Brown. They knew that when he came to repair whatever the problem was, it would be a time of fun, laughter, and advice given about anything would be provided.

From April 10, 1951 to 1952, Mr. Brown served his country during the Korean Conflict. He served as radio man on the front line of battle. He boosted the moral of his fellow service men of his unit with humor and his faith in God that He will protect them through the battles. He was the recipient of four Bronze Service Stars and United Nations Service Medals. In recognition of his outstanding service to the United States of America, as a member of the military and for his continued involvement as an advocate for veterans in every corner of the world, he received official citations from member of Congress, the Governor of the State of Maryland, the Senate of Maryland and the Maryland House of Delegates.

Because of his dedication to God and Carroll Western, Mr. Brown would videotape the Sunday Services at Carroll Western, to be used by those who were not able to attend a Sunday service. Mr. Brown also made a table on rollers to be used during the Sunday offering, and designed and made the cross on the front of the Church, just to name a few services rendered at Carroll Western. Mr. Brown was loved by many and those who met him for the first time will never forget him.

In addition to his wife, Beatrice, Raymond leaves with loving memories, four children, Merton Simpson, Jr., Kenneth Simpson, Raymond Brown, Jr., and Brenda Brown, one grandson, Lacy Brown and a host of nieces and nephews, other relatives, friends and loved ones.
