Obituary of Wade Brown

Wade Brown was born on November 27, 1925 to Daniel and

Oma Dell Brown in Henderson, Texas. He was educated at String Town Gold Berry

School. After high school, he and his twin brother, Wird, enlisted into the United

States Navy in 1944.

He married his wife, Martha Virginia Brown, on July 2, 1957 in Dallas,

Texas. Together they raised seven children and three great-grandchildren. They

were married for 50 years before she transitioned home to be with the Lord. In

1952, he began work as a barber in Graham’s Barber Shop in Dallas. He continued

to work there until 1979, when he and his wife moved to California. He then

worked as a banking security officer until retirement.

Wade, affectionately known by his last name, “Brown,” was very family

oriented. His home was always open to his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren,

family, and friends. He loved to tell jokes, tinker around the home,

create projects, and cut hair.

Wade loved church. He served as a deacon at his church, The Burning

Bush, in San Bernardino, California, until he moved back to Texas to reunite with

additional family members, including his brothers, Sebron, Joe, and his twin, Wird.

He became a deacon in his church, Southwest First Church of God in Christ, in

Houston, Texas.

His children, Lonzo Jobe and Juanita Dones of Dallas, Texas, Wilma Jean

Johnson, Pauline Lloyd, and Marvin Johnson of San Bernardino, California survive

him. He also leaves to cherish his memory, 17 grandchildren, 32 greatgrandchildren,

3 great-great grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends. His wife, Martha

Brown, sons Harold Johnson and Billy Wayne Jobe, father and mother, Daniel and Oma Dell, one

sister, Juanita, and six brothers, Matthew, Daniel, Harvey, James, Horace, and Jessie Brown precede him

‘In everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 4:6, 7) In particular, I pray for Jehovah’s spirit to give me strength. When I get really upset, I go to Jehovah and say, ‘I need more of your spirit,’ and he helps me through another day. Sometimes I cannot even articulate the words, but he gives me the strength to go on.” (Romans 8:26)

Expressing my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. May Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ comfort and console you through his word the Bible. God's word promises at Acts 24:15 the hope of being reunited with your loved one again here on earth. You can have complete confidence in this promise because of the resurrections of Lazarus and others that Jesus brought back to life here on earth and also because God cannot lie. May Jehovah God be with the Lee family during this time of grief. We also can find comfort knowing that one day soon Jesus will resurrect and bring back our love ones now sleeping death. (John 5:28, 29)
