Eugene “Gene” Lewis Brown, Jr.

A Proud Papaw -

Eugene “Gene” Lewis Brown, Jr., age 70, of Mechanicsburg, passed away on Tuesday, November 23, 2021.  Gene was born on Friday, June 8, 1951, in Glasgow, KY to the late Eugene Lewis Brown, Sr. and Opal Mae (Jackson) Brown.

Gene loved life and was totally dedicated to his family. He wanted to teach his four grandkids every little thing about nature and enjoying the world and about being kind. He believed that helping people was first and foremost. He was son, husband, father, uncle, cousin, but the most adored title was Papaw. He was so proud to be a dad, that was the cake, Papaw was the icing.
