James Donald “Brownie” Brown, 84, passed away on February 11, 2020 at his home with his family by his side. He was born on January 8, 1936 to the late James Ivan and Blonda (Swick) Brown.

James is survived by his brother, John Edward Brown of Cannonsburg, PA; nephews, Wilbur Cook and his wife Rhonda of Lumberport, WV, Bobby Brown and his wife Julie of Michigan; niece, Becky DeBerry and her husband Jay, of Isaac’s Creek, WV; great-nieces, Ashley Bice and her husband Brandon of Lumberport, WV, Emily Cook of Lumberport, WV, Jade DeBerry; great- nephew, Cole DeBerry and Colin Brown; great-great nieces, Katie and Sophie Bice; along with several nieces and nephews; special friend Cody Elder of Lumberport.

Brownie retired from the Lumberport Shinnston Gas Company with 28 years of service. He loved spending time with his neighbors as they sat on the porch reminiscing and telling stories. Brownie enjoyed hunting, and was a “Ford” man; he could fix just about anything and would lend a helping hand to anyone in need. If you needed to borrow something he was there.

Brownie will be missed by his family and friends. I don't know anyone who could argue as well as him, but always with a laugh and a twinkle in his eye. He sure liked to keep us all stirred up.
Our deepest condolences to Wilbur and Rhonda and especially to Emily and Ashley. You were his pride and joy.
Sincerely, Chip and Carol
