From 1971 to 1974, he served as a lance corporal in the Marine Corps.

The former Hampstead resident was an expediter at Westinghouse Electric Corp.'s Linthicum plant from 1975 to 1989.

In recent years, he had been a customer service representative at Wal-Mart stores in Hampstead and Glen Burnie. From 1992 until 2003, he was employed in the commissary at Fort Meade.

He had been a member of Trinity Bible Church in Severna Park and Hampstead Baptist Church.

Mr. Brown enjoyed working at his church, where he prepared and oversaw the printing of the church's weekly service bulletins. He also was the sound assistant for the choir.

Mr. Brown enjoyed fishing and family dinners.

Services were held yesterday in Lovettsville.

Also surviving are a brother, John L. Brown of Laurel; and a granddaughter. His marriage to Penny Brown ended in divorce.
