Obituary for WILLIAM 'CHICK' BROWN

William McKinley Brown, 81, of Huntingtown, MD passed away on April 4, 2011 at Calvert County Nursing Center, Prince Frederick, MD.
William McKinley Brown better known as "Chick," was born to the late Warren and Emma Brown, on August 13, 1929, in Huntingtown, Maryland, where he resided most of his life. Chick received his education in Calvert County Public Schools. He worked for Local Union 74 as a construction worker for 26 years in which he held several positions. In 1970, Chick started his own lawn service which included landscaping, leaf and snow removal and cutting lawns. Chick also planted a garden and had some of the best produce around which he used to feed the neighborhood. Chick loved springtime; he would have his truck loaded with the lawnmowers ready to go and prayed for daylight as he was always eager to start his day. His hobbies included street and drag racing, watching wrestling on TV, cap collecting, cleaning cars, and of course cutting grass.He later met and married the love of his life Vivian Jones on October 29, 1953. From that union there were four children. Equally as important as his family was his church: Chick joined Patuxent United Methodist Church at an early age; he was loyal and dedicated to serving the Lord. He served in many capacities at Patuxent which included Member of the Trustee Board, Member of the Usher Board, and Member of the Charge Trustee. He took pride in the upkeep of the church and the grounds.Chick was preceded in death by his parents, Warren and Emma and brothers, Wilford, Warren, Robert, Oliver, and Leroy.
Included among the many left to mourn and cherish his memory are his devoted wife Vivian, four children; William "Michael" (Robin), Larry (Hattie deceased), Alma (Oliver), and Rodney (Ann.) One granddaughter; Kyrstin (Wayne), five grandsons; Jermaine, Dion (Tamara), Nicholas, Jereme, and Kris. Seven great granddaughters; Tiaria, Kiara, Kalia, Eden, Johanna, Angel, and Kayla.
