Douglas Brown

March 8, 1977 ~ April 29, 2022 (age 45)


Douglas Dwight Brown, a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, entered into this life on March 08, 1977, at the University of Knoxville hospital and took his eternal rest on April 29, 2022. Douglas was the first child of Aaron and Tina Brown Jr. He accepted Christ while attending Grace Bible Baptist Church. Affectionately known as "Douggie" by many of his friends and family, he was very loyal to building lifetime relationships. Douglas had a contagious laugh; he loved being with friends and family and telling jokes. He and his mother took to heart, competing on most weeknights watching Jeopardy. He was a devoted son, brother, and friend. He loved cooking, and in recent years, he found his passion for sales and began selling at the local flea market.  

Douggie salesmanship, wit, charismatic personality, excellent customer service, and beautiful smile will genuinely be missed.

Recently, Douglas received the exciting news that he would be a grandfather for the first time. He would share this joy often with his friends and family. Unfortunately, due to his untimely transition, he left too soon before the delivery date. 

He leaves to cherish his memory, son, Kaleb (SJ) Tate (Future grandson-Theoden); parents, Tina and Aaron Brown Jr.; brothers, Steven and Brian (Linda) Brown, sister, Shanna (Reginald) Hurst; nephews and nieces, Jordan (Natasha), Deshawn, Jayla, Logan; devoted friend, Beth Blevins, beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, and a host of relatives and friends.
