Eddie Jackson Brown went to be with our Lord surrounded by family at his home on July 4, 2020.  He was born on August 26, 1934 in Columbiana, AL.  He is survived by wife Mary and their children Laura Thorpe (Marty), Tracy Harsch, Sherri Mele, Pam Woodruff (John), Jim Brown (Roberta Robinson), Ed Brown (Tammie), Suzie Harden, Ramona Gilpin, Andy Brown (Reno), Leah Maloy (Theado Reed), 29 grandchildren, and 26 great grandchildren.  He was married to Marietta for 53 years who preceded him in passing 14 years earlier.  He was a dedicated father and husband who loved the outdoor opportunities in Colorado.  Throughout his life he enjoyed golfing, weekend camping trips with his family on the Poudre and Blue rivers, hunting with his sons and friends outside Akron and Ohio City, and water sports with family and friends at Jackson Lake.  Later in life he made Walden his second home and truly loved his annual fishing trip to Ely, MN.  He joined the Air Force after attending Oak Ridge High School in Tennessee.  He served for 8 years which included time served in Japan during the Korean War.  After the military he joined the civil service at Lowry AFB in Denver where he retired 36 years later.  In an effort to provide the best life for his wife and 7 children he started a janitorial  business in 1954 as a second job which his son Andy still owns and operates today.  He also was part owner and operator of Potomac Liquors in Aurora, Colorado for over 20 years.  Throughout his life he was a Mason, participated at Eastern Star, and a member of the Aurora Eagles.  Through all these endeavors his wisdom, intelligence, guidance, integrity, and generosity were always present.  Please take a moment to help us celebrate his life by leaving stories and photos that capture wonderful memories of Eddie Brown.
