John Dandy “Dan” Brown of Wallace, NC, passed from his earthly life on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 while in Novant New Hanover Regional Medical Center.  Born May 25, 1947, he is the son of the late John D. and Rebecca Blanton Brown.  Also preceding him in death is a brother—Douglas Foy Brown.Left to cherish his memory are his wife—Betty Marie Owens Brown of Wallace; children—Jimmy Dwayne Brown and wife Erica of Leland, Johnnie Glenn Brown and wife Mattie of Richlands, and Kristie Brown Maready and husband Lynwood of Harrells; brother—Charles Clifton Brown of Lyman; grandchildren—Ashley Brown of Castle Hayne, Kaylee Brown of Leland, Nicholas Adams and wife Kayla of Willard, Rachel Adams of Wallace, and Justin Adams of Wallace.
Mr. Brown was a man full of humor at any time anyone encountered him and was always ready for a good conversation.  He was more interested in how others were doing, rather than how he was feeling.  Starting work as a mechanic for Cavenaugh Chevrolet at the age of fifteen, and then working for Jim Russ Chevrolet, he retired in 2012. A memorial service to celebrate his life is set for 3:00 p.m. on Friday, January 13, 2023 in the Wallace Assembly of God Church.  Officiating will be the Reverend Leo Bracken.  The family is requesting that, rather than floral arrangements, memorial contributions be considered to the Wallace Assembly of God - PO Box 248--Wallace, North Carolina 28466

His Life

Chevrolet "Like A Rock"

Dan Brown started work as a mechanic for Cavenaugh Chevrolet at the age of fifteen, and then worked for Jim Russ Chevrolet, he retired in 2012. Dan also ran the wrecker and the rollback for Jim Russ. Dan didn't mind how far or who he was helping, when he got there he would always spark up a conversation with them. Through working with Jim, Dan met many people. If there was somebody broke down he would always stop to give a helping hand. He would use his own tools, if it was a small fix he would even buy the parts for them and not expect nothing back in return.

Growing Up

January 25
  • Daddy, I want to thank you for everything you have done for me. I still look at my phone expecting you to call. I always knew it was you with that Johnny Cash ringtone. I really miss it. I can't help but cry. There are tears of joy and peace because I know you are in no pain and you no longer have to struggle in this world. I have tears because I miss you so much. I know you don't want us to cry. I love you very much, daddy. I have puppy here with me and he is doing great. I told him you were with God now. He still likes to play with the chickens outside. Daddy don't worry about momma. We will take care of momma for you. Momma loves you daddy. Thank you for being so wonderful to momma for all the years you were together. That showed us a great example. You and momma taught us well. We will continue to carry on what we have been taught. God blessed us with you. I hope you, Spanky, and Goat are fishing. Catch one for me. I love you daddy forever and always. Hugs and kisses. I have my bear in my office, when I walk in it's the first thing I see. With love always.
