Willie S. Brown

Deacon Willie S. Brown Jr. 56, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania passed away on December 16, 2021. He was born on October 10, 1965 in the Bronx, New York to Hazel Jean Wilson and Willie S. Brown.


Willie was employed as a Transportation Specialist and had a degree in Sports Broadcast Journalism. He was a lifelong sports fan and avid bowler. He loved giving commentary whether it was amateur or professional. He received numerous trophies and awards throughout his lifetime. He also enjoyed watching television game shows, playing board games, spending time with his children, sisters, nieces and nephews, cooking, cleaning and helping those in need.

Willie was a faithful church member who served at many churches throughout his life. He was ordained a Deacon under the Leadership of Pastor Robert L. Stevenson at the New Jerusalem Pentecostal Church of God in Christ in South Ozone Park, NY in 1998.

In 2002, Willie relocated to Delaware and continued to serve on the Deacon board under the leadership of Pastor Gentile Daniels at the Gospel Time Pentecostal Church of God in Christ.

In 2011, Willie and his Family joined the Love Temple Community Outreach Church of God in Christ under Pastor Louis Bowers.

Willie was a hard worker who delighted in teaching his children scriptures as he shared his faith with others.

Deacon Brown was a faithful and loyal brother, a devoted Father and a very loving and caring person whose presence we already miss.
