Mr. Robert Lee Brown

In Loving Memory of Robert Lee Brown
“Pops”
Robert was born June 7, 1930, in Moundville, Alabama to the parents of Mary Alice and William Brown. He was the youngest of four siblings: Marvin, John, and sister Mae Ola.
Though Robert did not receive “a formal education” in any special field, throughout his life he had various forms of employment. He was like a “JACK OF ALL TRADES”. If he didn’t know how to do something, he was diligent, and worked hard at any task until he mastered it. Many people can attest to his kindness, his love of people, and persistence in volunteering to help others.
Robert’s children are Roosevelt, Robert Jr, Rufus, William Thomas, Morris, Estella, Mildred, Mary, Arthur Lee, and Freddie Charles. His stepchildren are Joe, Corace, Shirley, Calvin, Mike, Wendell and Ray. Every single one of them felt his love equally. He made no distinction between them. He was a very loving and kind father, and a very good provider. He taught all his children about God and life…. one fact about life that still sticks with all of them is this “IF YOU DON’T WORK, YOU DON’T EAT”. Words they all remember and pay attention to until this day.
As a child, Robert had a very close and loving bond with his mother, Mary Alice. When she passed away in death, he found comfort in reading the Bible, but had many unanswered questions. When one of Jehovah’s Witnesses came to his door in the early 60’s, he was overjoyed to learn about the wonderful hope of paradise and the possibility of seeing his dear mother again. This led to a serious study of the Bible. The things he learned touched his heart and moved him to make a personal dedication to Jehovah God. Robert was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on July 15, 1969, in Atlanta, Georgia.
As one of Jehovah’s witnesses he found so much joy in preaching and teaching God’s word to others. He gave excellent talks on the Theocratic School.

He loved working at the Kingdom Hall, volunteering to do whatever task he was able to. He always had a smile on his face and a joke on his lips. Even after he developed health problems it pained him deeply when he couldn’t lend a helping hand. However, he always prayed for the project’s success.
Early in 2008, Robert met Elaine Satterfield at the assembly in Bessemer. At the time Elaine was teaching a sign language class. Unbeknown to her, to get closer to his goal of marrying Elaine, he joined the class.…., After joining the class though…. he didn’t really learn sign language beyond the alphabet, … but he did mastered the sign for: I LOVE YOU…., He was very successful in winning Elaine’s heart. . They were married on July 26, 2008.
Robert and Elaine were not only marriage mates, but very close friends. They had a caring relationship, based on mutual support, deep love for Jehovah God and each other.
They became “craft partners”. Many of Elaine’s jewelry creations were Robert’s ideas and he even helped make some. They were “garden partners”. The beautiful vegetables grown on their balcony was the result of both their labors together. Yes, Robert and Elaine were inseparable in every endeavor.
Elaine’s three sons Charles, Kenneth and Carl were all very fond of Robert. He became “Pops” to them, and they became “sons” to him. He loved spending time with family and friends.
Robert suffered with heart problems for some years. In the last few years of his life his health began to deteriorate. He was cared for at home by his devoted wife. However, after being hospitalized many times because of his health, he died peacefully at home, surrounded by a loving family on January 24, 2022.
Robert leaves to mourn, his loving wife, Elaine, three sisters-in-law, two brothers-in-law, his children, stepchildren, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and a host of nephews and nieces and loving friends, whom he considered to be “family”.
A special thanks to the Encompass Hospice team who helped us out so much and brought joy to Robert during his final days.
