He leaves his wife, Barbara, of 54 years; his son, Everett F. Brown, Jr. (Cathy); his daughter, Theresa Packett (Jimmy); his brother, Hampton Brown (Lula); his sister, Jenny Herbert (Jimmy); his brother-in-law, Wayne H. Jenkins (Butchie); two grandchildren,Tiffany Wittman (Josh) and Everett F. Brown III; four great-grandchildren, Macon, Jackson, Paxton and Colson; and many close friends, most notably Larry Thrift and Donald Jenkins.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Alice "Nanny" Brown and brother, Robert "Bubba" Brown.
Pete spent most of his professional career as a Maintenance Specialist at Brandywine Auto Parts in Maryland and retired in 2001.
He was a faithful lifetime member of the Westmoreland Volunteer Fire Department from 1978 - 1993 and a dedicated member of over 20 years in the Pantico Run Hunt Club.
It was the simple things in life that made Pete happy. He didn't measure life by possessions but rather by his experiences he shared with family and friends. Pete preferred to spend most of his time outdoors hunting, gardening, and sitting under the tree with his cat of 13 years, Joe.
"Daddy Pete" will be missed by all for his kindness, honesty, ability to fix anything and everything, his willingness to help anyone in need, and for his appreciation of a good home cooked meal.
A celebration of life will be planned for early summer. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to be made to the Westmoreland Volunteer Fire Department, in memory of Pete Brown-Montross: PO Box 222, Montross, VA 22520.
