Obituary

Lionel Brown, affectionately known as Brother Bishop, Deacon Brown, Brother Brown, Mr. “B”, Mr. Brown, Pops, Pappy and Uncle Bish by numerous friends and relatives, was born to Zephiniah Brown and Repershia Deans on September 4, 1933, in Portland, Jamaica, and was the youngest of his siblings.
He spent his early years in Jamaica before emigrating to the UK in the late fifties to become a skilled welder, for which he had great affinity and always recalled with fondness. He was a gregarious character who was loved dearly by the community of Sherwood Forest and its surrounding district. He had a keen sense and was a good cricketer who demonstrated his creativity by making his own cricket bats from the raw moon plant. Canada would later become his home for a number of years before he finally emigrated to the USA after meeting his future wife, the love of his life, Enid Hylton.
Lionel and Enid had 21+ wonderful and happy years together before he fell asleep, peacefully, at Florida Medical Center on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, following a short period of hospitalization. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor, being a trickster, quick to laughter, strong convictions, his love of cooking some rather unusual concoctions but, most importantly, his love of the Lord. It is this for which Enid loved him especially. He was the door and introduction to her Heavenly Father and her partner on their journey together in serving the Lord.
He will always hold a special place in the hearts of everyone he encountered and in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. He is preceded in death by his parents, Zephiniah Brown and Repershia Deans, eldest brother Clarence, four older sisters Annetta, Aldith, Carmel and Ursilda as well as a younger brother, Ira.
He is survived by his wife Enid who was his soulmate, love of his life and friend; one sister, Whilelmina Brown, who resides in the UK; sons Anthony, Earl and Andrew; step-daughters Audette, Vinnett, Barbara and Patricia; daughters-in-law Denise and Patti and a large loving host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Aunt Enid, Wayne and I would once again like to share our condolences on the passing of your husband, our Uncle Bish, your friend, partner and companion these twenty-one plus years. You were truly the love of his life. We know you will miss him in the days, weeks, months and years ahead. However, remember that the Lord whom you have come to know and serve will never leave you nor forsake you and will always be there when you need a shoulder to lean on. He will see each tear you shed and will lovingly and tenderly wipe them away. Tony (Denise), Earl (Patti), Andrew, Audette, Vinette, Barbara and lastly, but not the least, Patricia, who we will never forget and sincerely thank you, we extend our condolences and love to you all again. Wayne and Jean Martin.
