Caron Brown went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, entering into the fullness of joy in His presence, on Wednesday, July 24, 2013.
He was a loving and faithful husband to his wife of 37 wonderful years, and a gracious and generous father to his children. He is survived by his wife, Elaine Brown of Lincolnton; son, Greg Brown and daughter-in-law, Mary C. Brown; and two granddaughters, Emmaline and Georgia, of Cheverly, MD; daughter, Rachel Brown of Lincolnton; son, Philip Brown, of Gastonia, and daughter-in-law-to-be Kristin Haas, of Dallas, N.C.; brother, Loren Brown, of Boerne, Tex..
His love and affection, steadfastness and strength as a husband, father, son, and friend will be remembered with respect and deep gratitude. He was born on July 29, 1951 in Cedar Rapids, IA to James and Anna Brown, both of whom preceded him in death. His sister, Mary F. Brown, also preceded him in death.
He served in the United States Navy from 1971 to 1978 with tours on the USS South Carolina as an Electrician’s Mate First Class. He was diligent to provide well for his family through 35 years of employment with Duke Energy at McGuire
Throughout the years, Caron enjoyed participating in a local body of Christian believers, listening to music and audio books, playing racquetball with friends, home construction projects, and spending time with family. He enjoyed many hours and days and years with his family playing board games, camping and hiking, “train spotting,” playing and watching sports, biking, trying out a pun and eliciting smiles and groans, traveling to visit extended family, listening to piano,
violin, and guitar being played by his wife and sons, and simply sharing a good meal or a cup of coffee over a conversation about life and the Lord.
