Fred J. Brown, 99, passed
away peacefully at his beloved
home in Toledo Dec. 26, 2018.
He was born Nov. 28, 1919, to
Filbert and Bethena Brown of
Dodgen Ridge, N.C. Fred was
the oldest living child of 21
He is survived by his son,
Wayne Brown; daughter, Sue
Moody; sister, Pearl Smith; and brothers, Spurgion Brown and
Waver Brown; along with many beloved grandchildren; greatgrandchildren;
and great-great-grandchildren; cousins; nieces
and nephews. Fred was cherished deeply and loved by all.
He moved to Washington with his wife and children in 1949,
where he worked in the logging industry, timber faller and bull
buck. Fred has been a hard worker his entire life. At 99, he was in
his right mind and able bodied to do the things he loved until his
last breath. He was an avid hunter, gardener and farmer. And he
always had a story or joke to tell.
He will be dearly missed. The love and respect for him
will continue in our hearts. "I love you, Grandpa." ~ Renee
