Mr. Elbert Brown, age 72 of Vienna, Va., departed this life on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at his home, of natural causes. He was born October 19, 1939 in Statesboro, GA. to the late Elder George Thomas and Emily (Howard) Brown. He was a graduate of Roosevelt High School in Dayton, OH, Class of 1958. He earned his Bachelor's degree from Ohio University and continued on to receive his Masters degree from Cornell University. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Viet Nam war.

Residing in the Washington D.C. area since 1972, he had a distinguished career with the American Red Cross and retired from his role as Vice President of Eastern Operations. Elbert traveled extensively, visiting family and friends worldwide. He was a sports enthusiast who enjoyed basketball, football and tennis. He was an avid reader and inspired writer who frequently shared his favorite books, letters and handwritten cards. Throughout his life, his desire was to locate his extended family and he worked to preserve and share our family history. He was the glue and the voice of reason that brought the Browns together on many occasions. As the youngest child of George and Emily Brown, he was close to his brothers and sisters, and formed a special bond with his nieces, nephews and their children. He enjoyed planning and attending the McCall-Tyson family reunion.

Elbert is survived by a brother Milledge Brown of White Plains, New York and a sister Beatrice and brother-in-law Rufus Pope of Portsmouth, VA and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and friends.
