Robert E. “Bobby” Brown was born on June 3, 1957, in Hohenwald, Tennessee, to the late Robert Webb and Mary Elizabeth Brown. He is survived by one aunt, Mrs. Cordie Pulley and husband of Waynesboro, several cousins, many friends, church families, and his co-workers at Peoples Bank. He departed this life on November 16, 2020, at Williamson Medical Center.
Bobby moved to Waynesboro after the death of his mother and was well taken care of by Buffalo River Services, Inc. After moving to Waynesboro, Bobby’s light began to shine on the whole community. He was an active member of the Waynesboro Rotary Club and the Civitan Club. He attended every event where he could enjoy being around people. He would catch a ride to every ballgame, every wedding, and every church revival and would sing a good gospel song if he could. He was an avid Tennessee Vols fan and Wayne County Wildcats fan. He grieved with every family that lost a loved one and rarely missed a funeral. He attended Waynesboro First Baptist Church where he sang in the choir. Bobby’s kindness and love will live in the memory of his grieving community, but his love for his Lord will be remembered the most. In Bobby’s own words, “You can’t keep a good man down!”
Visitation with the family was held on Sunday, November 22, at the Wayne County High School Gymnasium from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM. Funeral services followed at 1:00 PM. Jeff Davis, Greg Eaton, and Tim Hanback officiated. Burial followed in the Downey Cemetery in Hohenwald, TN. Pallbearers were Jerrod Baugus, Alan Daniel, Kelvin Runions, Hayden Kelly, Donnie Runions, Chuck Moser, Steve Jones, Camryn Eaton, and Bronson Reaves.
