Tim was born to Louis E. and Mary Dorothy (Guarnera) Brown on May 1st, 1948 at St. Mary of the Plains Hospital in Lubbock, TX. He married Pam Cox on August 5, 1972, at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church in Lubbock, Texas. Tim Brown began his journey in Lubbock as an altar server at St. Elizabeth’s and attended Catholic School for most of his elementary years. He attended J. T. Hutchinson Middle School and gave Principal Roy Grimes a run for his money. He then attended and graduated from Monterey High School (in 1967) much to the surprise of many of his teachers. He moved on to attend Texas Tech where he met his lovely wife, Pam, on a blind date. Tim was an avid sailor, and at one time was the Commodore of the White River Yacht Club. Over the years he worked at Twin Oaks Pharmacy, Doms Ltd, delivered papers for the Avalanche-Journal, and then began working for his brother Mike at P and B Furniture Sales. He wound up traveling for Ashley Furniture and stayed with them for a number of years. After selling furniture he worked at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church as the “fixer of all things.” He enjoyed dominoes and pinochle with his close friends and also made yearly visits to the Rio Grande with his River Rump buddies. He was an active Knights of Columbus member and helped found the 12803 Council at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church. He served in many offices including that of the Grand Knight. He enjoyed supporting the Knights in their charity work. His passion became volunteering and helping with the Special Olympics although he never showed up without a Dr. Pepper in hand. He was the hard worker, the helpful neighbor, the General, and was one who never met a stranger.
Survivors include his wife, Pam Brown; their children, Jennifer Brown and husband Gregg DeVault, Christina Smothers and husband Steve, and Todd Brown and wife Stephanie; grandchildren, Kaitlyn DeVault, Madison DeVault, Sydney Smothers, Ethan Smothers; and a brother, Mike Brown and wife Pat; along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and five brothers, Bruce Brown, John Brown, Vince Brown, Leo Brown and his twin, Tom Brown.
The family of Tim Brown has designated the Special Olympics Texas or the Elizabeth Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund in the College of Engineering at Texas Tech for memorial contributions donated in his memory.
