Donald Lee Brown (DL), age 69, a life-time resident of the Neva area, left this world to be with the Lord on the morning of May 29, 2017 at his residence. Born on June 2, 1947 to the late Dewey Brown and Addie Elizabeth Brown. In addition to his parents DL was also preceded in death by brothers Tommy George, Jack, Lonnie Olen and sisters, Nellie Brown, Coretta Roark and sister- in- law Debra Brown.
DL was a member of Vaught’s Gap Baptist Church and loved the Lord and enjoyed going to church. He loved to sing in the choir and was quoted as saying “I can’t sing that well, but I tried to make a joyful noise”.
DL also loved good food and socializing on a creek bank where he loved to fish. He enjoyed hunting throughout his years and was blessed with many hunting and fishing buddies and always found time to help serve others when needed.
DL is survived by his brothers who are left to cherish his memory, Ed Brown and wife Marie, Coleman Brown and special friend June Thomas and Rocky Brown. DL had five nieces and three nephews.
Although DL had no children of his own, he had a special dog, Megan , that he loved like a child. Where you saw DL, you saw Megan as well. They were defiantly a pair and he will be missed dearly.
