Lewis Brown, Jr.

Lewis Brown, Jr., was born in Nashville, TN on January 29, 1962, and transitioned to his heavenly home on January 23, 2022, after a short illness at Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital Midtown.  He was the third child of six children, born to the late Lewis and Barbara Brown.  He graduated from Whites Creek High School in 1980 and was named “Best Dressed” by his peers. He worked at Bert’s Men’s Wear and Vanderbilt Hospital for many years.

Lewis confessed his belief for Christ at a youthful age. His love for good preaching, teaching, and singing led to his membership at various churches in the Nashville area. His current membership was at Gospel United Missionary Baptist Church under the pastorship of Bishop Carlos Jones. Every Sunday, you could find Lewis at the morning church service, the afternoon service, the evening service, and if there was a late-night service, Lewis was there also.  It was hard to not know his presence. Lewis not only had a big personality, deep voice, and huge smile but he was fun loving and a genuine good guy.

Lewis was a devoted and loving father, grandfather, brother, and friend.  He loved his children and family unconditionally; they meant the world to him. He would always talk about his "big" family and how he enjoyed family gatherings. Lewis had a beautiful spirit that captured the hearts of all that he encountered. 

He never met a stranger and touched the lives of many people who will forever cherish his fun, loving and caring personality. 

We will all miss Lewis, but he left so many laughs, so many memories behind that whenever we think of him, we will smile. 

He is preceded in death by parents, Lewis Brown, Sr. and Barbara Brown, and sister, Bridgett Brown. He leaves behind to celebrate memories of his life; children, Joi Scales, Allana Banks, Ken’Yona Brown, Lewis Brown III, Shatavia Brown, Jamar Pickens, Shareka Brown, Aaliyah Mathis, Rico Jackson, Deangelos Hayes, Darrin Hayes; grandchildren, Kyiah Scales, Kirah Scales, Kyron Caruthers, Cam’Ron Brown, Cashmere Brown, Camila Brown, Gabriella Pickens, Ken’lyon Brown, Ariana Banks, and Thomas Banks; sisters and brother, Freda Sanford, Tony (Jennifer) Brown, Mechelle (Brian) Webster, Vechelle (Ron) Workings; devoted niece, ShaTika Brown and host of nieces and nephews; devoted friend, Thomas Driver; and a host of aunts, uncles, relatives, and friends.

To the Brown Family:
We are sorry to hear about the recent passing of Lewis Brown Jr. Our deepest thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends during this time of great sadness. To all grieving hearts we encourage all to please find comfort in this promise form God where He tells us about the resurrection blessing that is near at hand. This touching promise is recorded at John 5:28-29. As the text states, that God would cause a calling to go forth to those in the grave to stand up in life again. Just imagine this arrangement taking place, and being applied to Lewis, and to others who had fallen asleep in death. Remember that God is the source of life for all things. Even if a person dies, that person can once again be made whole again. (Psalm 36:9) Until this wonderful arrangement begins to take place, we can use this time to learn all that we can about the resurrection blessing from God. God has preserved nine accounts in the Bible that speaks about this grand blessing that is ever so near at hand. Here is just one such example that is recorded at John 11:32-44. I hope that all will get a chance to see how these verses apply to Lewis, and to many others who await their personal awakening from God. So, may all please keep this promise of God near your hearts at all times. Remember that when God makes a promise, it becomes reality. For it is impossible for God to lie. (Titus 1:2)
