Michael Brown

Dec. 9, 1965 — July 31, 2014

Michael Brown was born in Atlanta, Ga., on Dec. 9, 1965.

He spent some of his childhood in Charleston, S.C. He then made his way to Fairfield, Calif., by the time he was a young adult, and spent the rest of his years in the Bay Area. Although he tended to be somewhat of a loner, he could always strike up a conversation with anyone willing to listen because he was so very “outspoken.”

He was the one quick to say what everyone else was thinking. Mike was a very unique person, an avid family man. His favorite pastime was his loyalty to the Dallas Cowboys and the Atlanta Braves.

He was loved by many and will be truly missed by all.

In his celebration of homecoming, he leaves his loving wife of seven years, Renée Brown; children, DaKarai Evans-Brown, K’Lya Brown, Malik Brown, Harmony Evans, assumed son, James Douglas Jr.; mother, Deotha Wolfe; stepfather, Calvin Wolfe; brother Demetrius Wolfe, several step-siblings and a host of extended relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his loving father, Harry W. Brown.

Funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 8, 2014, at  Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, 1735 Enterprise Dr. Fairfield, Calif. 94533.

    My deepest sympathy to you and the family. Mike was a great neighbor always a bright spot in my day. I pray that God will see you through and give you strength to face the days before you. Renee, Dee and family, you are in my prayers and I know Mike is safely with Our Lord and watching over us all. Rest in the presence of the Lord, Mike, we'll meet again on the other side. In His Name, Miss Shelly.

    Mike will always be remembered. The nights our families would get together at each others houses for bbq, dominoes and even just to chill for a bit. The crazy jokes him and Budd would tell. The times we all would go back & forth discussing football, and dis each others teams. LOL... we had good times, they will be remembered always. RIP Mike
