John Kenneth (Ken) Brown, 93, passed away in Redwood City, CA on December 27, 2014 after a short illness. Born on August 30, 1921 in Swan Quarter, North Carolina to Thaddeus Brown and Mary Leta (Berry), Ken established a life-long work ethic of excellence on their rural farm. His professional career began as a Newport News, VA, ship fitter where he saved enough money, $600 per year, to put himself through two years of college at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. His education was interrupted as he chose to serve as a Staff Sergeant during WWII. After honorable discharge, he completed his Bachelors Degree in Business Commerce. He was the founding owner of AAA Rentals, which he successfully grew and operated debt free for the past 50 years.

Ken was a longtime member of the First Methodist Church, The Elks Club #1991, the American Legion, the California Rental Association, American Rental Association, the National Rifle Association, Republican National Committee, Atlantic Masonic Lodge #294 and Rotary International. He was an avid outdoor adventurer, hunting and fishing, into his 90's.

Ken is survived by his children, Kyle (Carollynn) and Lisa (Craig) and his four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. His wife, Lois of 46 years, joined him in Heaven on February 1, 2015.

His memorial service will be held at 10 a.m., Friday, February 20, at the Peninsula Covenant Church, 3560 Farm Hill Boulevard, Redwood City. There will be a reception immediately following at the Redwood City Elks.
