    My deepest condolences to the Brown Family. I grew up down the street from the Brown residence.

    As a little kid, I knew the whole Brown family from the oldest, Pam, to the youngest, Lisa. I was great friends with Mike Brown. Mike and I were in the same grade and played on the same Little League baseball team, Olsen Manufacturing.

    I recall Mike’s father, Mr. Brown quite well way back to when I was about 7 years old. I remember Mr. Brown being a truck driver and Mike and I climbing up on a huge truck with Mr. Brown telling us to “get down from there” for our own safety.

    I remember Mr. Brown as the “coolest” parent in the neighborhood, clean cut with movie star looks, sunglasses, and a big motorcycle with not a spec of dust or dirt on it anywhere. Mr. Brown was always in great shape, looked like an athlete, tough as nails, and always dressed and groomed impeccably. He was simply a great role model for the kids in the neighborhood.

    I recall Mr. Brown’s brother, David, a leftie, teaching Mike and me how to throw a curveball when we were about 7 or 8 years old. Mr. Brown was catching for us and Mike’s Uncle David was showing us how to throw it. Mike and I were thrilled when we could actually see the ball curving and Mike’s dad, Mr. Brown, confirmed, that yes our pitches were indeed curving.

    Mr. Brown was well respected by the parents and kids in the neighborhood. He used to attend our little league baseball games. Mr. Brown was kind of a quiet no-nonsense guy. He didn’t hand out compliments easily but when he said something like “nice hit”, you really felt honored.

    I remember one time a car load of thugs were terrorizing the neighborhood when we were kids. Mr. Brown confronted the thugs before the police arrived. Although there were 5 of them against Mr. Brown who was a military veteran, we’ll just say Mr. Brown took care of business quite handily to the embarrassment of the thugs and to awe of onlookers and the thugs never returned to our neighborhood again.

    Needless to say at this point, I have great childhood memories of Mr. Brown. He was a great man admired by everybody in the neighborhood.
