James Brown Obituary

James Michael Brown passed away peacefully in his home on Wednesday June 21st, 2023, after a long courageous battle with lung cancer.

He was a Sergeant in the United States Army.

He loved sports, and was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers, and Pirates Fan, taking in as many games up until his passing. He played slow pitch softball in Erie for a variety of teams for many years. He hosted multiple softball tournaments to raise thousands of dollars to be donated to Make a Wish Foundation.

He now joins his son Anthony Brown, his parents, his sister Rose, Helen, and brother Charles Brown in heaven. He also gets to see his best dog pal and Steeler good luck charm Spunky.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his devoted loving wife Connie Brown, whom he spent the last 41 years by his side. Children, Michelle and Tom Berry, Michelle (Shelly) and Brian Vogel, and Nakeisha and Tom Loomis. He also leaves to cherish his memory, many nieces, nephews, and friends. He leaves behind 15 grandchildren, some he taught to swim, slide down the stairs in cardboard boxes, and to dance to the doo wop.

He is further survived by his brother Tom and his wife Joyce Brown, Frank and his wife Rose Brown, and his sister Shirley Stine.

James, “Pop”, “Jimmy” was a giver, always making sure his family and friends had food, and a warm place to stay. It trickled down to the love for his fur babies.

We ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in his memory to any animal shelter of your choice. His little companion Chi-Chi who desperately misses her dad would greatly appreciate it.

If you hear rumblings from up above it’s ok, it’s just Pops with his crew, drinking a cold one and telling stories.

It’s not good-bye, It’s Too-da-loo.

A Memorial Luncheon will be held on Saturday July 1st at 1pm at the American Legion Post 0571 in Wesleyville, PA.
