Jimmy T. Brown, of Stony Point, passed away after a two-year battle with cancer at his home on September 30, 2021.
He was born on August 27, 1948, in Vivian, Louisiana, to the late J.T. and Bernice Wood Brown. He was raised in Atlanta, Texas. Jimmy served in the US Navy in Reconnaissance Attack Squadron Heavy 3 during the Vietnam War. He met his wife of 44 years, the late Martha Cates Brown of Statesville, in Atlanta, Georgia, on leave.
He had varied professions in his life, breaking horses, pipefitter, truck driver, and was co-owner of J&M Mobile Home Repair and Shiloh Antiques. He retired from Auto Truck Transport in Cleveland. He was an Asst. Scout Master for BSA Troop 376 and Troop 609. He was also a member of American Legion Post 65, DAV Chapter 34, and an NRA Patron Member.
He enjoyed IMSA competition pistol, classic muscle cars, and good music. He was a loving husband and father that always provided for his family. He saw a lot of this world in his time, and always planned to see more. May his spirit fly high and see all that he couldn’t see on this earth.
He is survived by his son, Glenn Brown (Amber Stoerrle) of Stony Point; sister, Ellen Brown O’Rear (Jerry) of Atlanta, Texas; and sister-in-law, Nora Cates Sliney (Bill) of Rock Hill, South Carolina.
