Howard J. Brown Jr. passed away, June 3rd, 2022 at the age of 71.
Leaving behind his son, Howard J. Brown III and daughter, Nora Reitzel; 6 Grandchildren: Sydney Bernal, Cameron Brown, Natalia Brown, Cole Reitzel, Hailey Reitzel, Mia Reitzel.
He grew up with 4 sisters: Barbara Wenderoth, Mary Weaver, Dottie Pellicane, & Carol Daleo.
8 years in the Army. He fought in the Vietnam War.
He enjoyed humor and making people laugh. As his daughter in-law, I gave him the nickname papa bear, so I don’t confuse the two. The nickname fit him because he is lovable and a father and sometimes a bit grizzly looking like a bear. What I miss the most is me cooking him his favorite meals.
His daughter, a special princess, and his son, a special buddy, have lots of fond memories which will live on.
He loved music. He loved all his family and friends. Think – one bourbon, one scotch, and one 🍺 beer …. cheers 🍻 to a man who lived a full life.
Inurnment : Long Island National Cemetery, 2040 Wellwood Ave Farmingdale, NY 11735 on Friday June 17th at 11:30am.
