Celebrating the life of Joseph Carl Brown II
Thank you for signing Joseph Carl Brown II's Guestbook
I am truly sorry by the passing of my first cousin, Joe. A few years back when I reconnected with my Aunt Annetta and Uncle Joe, he and several members of his family came out on that hot humid evening to enjoy a picnic with us at the local park. Joe was like I remembered him in my childhood. He was very welcoming, offering a warm smile and engaging conversation. It was especially nice to see him come join us a few years later in Terre Haute for a family reunion. Keeping your family, and Joe's brothers and sisters in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.

Joe was a wonderful friend that Paul and I enjoyed seeing at the Indy 500 when we traveled up from our home in Florida to do the show with our Interesting library. Joe would occasionally help us get inventory in and set up if we were running late. He was a helpful, loving kind considerate person who went out of his way to help many people. We enjoyed breaking bread with Joe after the shows were over and enjoyed learning about his interesting life and talking about current events.
I last tried to call Joe the day he passed to let him know about Paul passing a week prior (4/6/17) but we played phone tag so I am sure he was surprised when he got to the other side and saw that Paul beat him to it!
Joe loved this country and will be remembered as a true patriot and a loving child of our father. Joe will be dearly missed as a Dear and precious friend that we had the honor of knowing
Sincerely, Joni and Paul
