Charles “Buddy” E. Brown, Jr., of Monroe, passed away February 21, 2022, at the age of 72. A visitation for friends and family will be held at Mulhearn Funeral Home on Friday, March 4, 2022, from 5:00 P.M. until 7:00 P.M. and a site service at Mulhearn Chapel Mausoleum at 10:00 A.M. on Saturday, March 5, 2022.
Buddy was born on June 22, 1949, in Monroe where he was raised and spent his adult life. He was an avid outdoorsman in his younger years and could often be found at his hunting camp in Somerset that he shared with his buddies. As he got older, he enjoyed traveling in his home on wheels or his “bus” as we called it. He was always available to friends and family and was the go-to when anyone needed help, it was always “call Buddy”. He always knew what to do, he always came through and he was happy to do it. He was a jack of all trades and could build a house from the ground up, repair anything, install anything, he could do it all.
He was a kind, gentle man, a devoted husband and a loving and giving father. He adored his grandchildren who called him Paw Paw but his buddies referred to him as Paw Paw long before he became a grandparent because of his more mature ways so to speak.
He was an exceptional human being and such an example of humility and pure goodness. He truly made this world a better place.
Buddy is preceded in death by his wife, Terri Cockrell Brown and his parents, Charles. E. Brown and Frances Brown. He is survived by his children, Dr. Charles “Trey” E. Brown, III and wife Robin of Irving, TX and Molly Hutchings and husband Kenneth of Fulshear, TX; grandchildren, Caroline and Hanna Hutchings and Gavin Brown; the mother of his children, Wendy Gray and husband Rel; sister, Carrie Henley; brothers, Richard Brown and wife Day and Robert Brown and wife Michelle; sister-in-law, Dianne Cage and husband Mike; sister-in-law, Rebo Bradford and husband Damon; brother-in-law, Tom King and wife Jewel; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Honorary pallbearers are Richard Brown, Robert Brown, John Brown, Billy Husted and Johnny Gaiennie.
The family is grateful for his close friend, Pam Hudson for her loving care and companionship; his good friend, Conway Liner for always checking on him and looking out for him; and his neighbor, Ro Worley for her kindness and willingness to be of help.
Memorials can be made to Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or charity of choice.
