Keith R. Brown 1963-2020

YOUNGSTOWN — Mr. Keith Randall Brown, 57, departed this life Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2020, at Oasis Nursing Home, Youngstown.

He was born April 3, 1963, in Youngstown, a son of Rosalie Rhodes Brown and James W. Brown, the second youngest of 11 children.

Keith was a 1981 graduate of North High School.

Keith loved his funkadelic music, singing and dancing. The things he loved most was spending time with his family and friends. Keith was a happy, funny guy. He was always making whomever was in his presence laugh. Keith had the most hilarious voice that could make you laugh in the middle of crying.

There is so much to be said about Keith. He was a fighter — a survivor of this harsh world. He weathered so many storms. God has seen fit for him to rest now. He no longer has to hurt, fight or struggle. It is now his time for peace.

He leaves to cherish all good memories his loving mother, Rosalie Brown, whom he called his “Sweet Pea”; his siblings, Corliss Brown, Marcia Terrell, Galen Brown, Karen (Donald) Jones, all of Youngstown, Ronci (Albert) Eke of Houston, Texas, Jerome Brown of Youngstown and Terrance / Tramin (Toni) Brown of Houston,Texas; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and dear friends, including his special caregiver, Salinda Sellars.

He was preceded in death by his father, James W. Brown; and his siblings Lindon (Winko) Brown, Rodney Neil Brown and Allison “Oopy” Brown.

A homegoing celebration will be held 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 30, 2020, at the Jaylex Event Center, 2110 Glenwood Ave., Youngstown. The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday at the event center.
