RV Brown, age 89, of Elizabethton, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 24, 2013 at his residence, with his loving family by his side. There, he was reunited with his wife of 66 years, Margaret Pearl Dugger Brown, and a son, Thomas Leon Brown.

He was also preceded in death by his parents, James and Stella Hagy Brown; brothers, Atley, Shirley, Don, Haden, Ree, and Stanley Brown; and sisters, Eva Tester and Vela Dugger. Those left to cherish his memory include a daughter, two sons, eight grandchildren, eight great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews, and his dog, Hershey; and many other cherished friends.

RV was born on April 2, 1923 in Butler, TN. He served his country during World War II as a member of the United States Army. A machinist by trade, RV was also a gifted woodcrafter whose greatest joy was singing tenor in the Sugar Grove Baptist Church Quartet. He was a longtime member of the Immanuel Baptist Church of Elizabethton, TN.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to his caretakers Barbara, Deborah and Lou.
