LARRY BROWN - November 01, 1955 - February 02, 2022

Departed: 02/02/2022 (Plant City)
Obituary Preview: Obituary “Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name, I will lift up my hands.” —-Psalm 63:3-4
We cannot celebrate the life of Deacon Larry Brown without thinking of how much he loved to praise and worship God. Not only on Sunday, but all through the week, with outstretched hands, lifted up, praising God. Praise, to Larry, was a God-appointed calling, and it became both his duty and his delight. His intimate relationship with God, his love of Jesus, and his filling of the Holy Spirit gave him abundant reasons to praise.
A faithful member of Mt Olive Baptist Church Plant City, Florida, Larry loved serving others in the name of Jesus. He was the Chairman of the Deacon Ministry, he served in the Usher Ministry, Sunday School, Children's Church and Bible Study, Friday Night Prayer Meeting, Kitchen Ministry, and the Food Pantry. Larry loved and also mentored the youth of the Church and was fondly called “Grandpa” and “Pops” by many.
Because Larry believed in the Bible Principals of Time, Talent, and Tithes, he was a good steward of all that God intrusted him with. He faithfully gave his time and used his talent to serve others. Larry was a cheerful giver and spoke to others about the many blessings of tithing and good stewardship.
While youth leaders at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church, Thonotosassa, Florida, God placed in the hearts of Larry and Pamela to begin a Camping Ministry. Along with volunteers, they held the first youth camp retreat. After four years of successful camping retreats through their Church Ministry, the Holy Spirit led the Browns to use this Camping Ministry to reach further than they could have imagined.
Hence, the birth of CAMP GENESIS MINISTRIES. With the partnership of counselors and volunteers, Camp Genesis Ministries was committed to providing an environment for youth and adults to come into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to nurture a lifelong commitment of knowing and serving Jesus while experiencing the joy of camping.
Larry graduated from Calhoun County High School, Edison, Georgia in 1973. He received an Associate Degree in Business Management from Hillsborough Community College and a Bible Studies Diploma from Faith Bible Institute. After almost 45 years of service, Larry retired from Kloeckner Metals (formerly Namasco).
Passionate about softball, Larry played for the Black Devils, the Roots, Omaha Steakhouse, and Diversified Co-ed softball team. He moved up to Hillsborough County Top A-Teams- Dan’s Supporting Goods and Elite. Larry was also a co-coach of the Sprouts Co-Ed Team with his brother. He was a member of the amateur Soft Ball Association Worldwide sponsored by his Hillsborough County for over 25 years as an umpire. Larry and his brother, Jesse Brown, were the first African-American brothers inducted into the Umpire Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Larry was born in Leary, Georgia on November 1,1955 to the late Ozell Brown Sr. and the late Fannie Mae Brown. He made his transition on Wednesday, February 2, 2022. Larry was preceded by brothers Pastor Arthur Lee Brown, Ozell Brown Jr., and Crawford Brown.
Cherishing the beautiful memories of Larry are wife, Pamela E. Tarrent Brown; son, Timothy Brown and Nina; daughters, Emily Brown and J’uanetteConcepcion; God-given daughters, Kristen Smith,Lashonda Mincy, Camille Scringer, Tarsha Wiggins, and Shirley Wilkerson; 14 grand children and one great-grandchild; brothers Jesse Brown and Gwendolyn; Charlie Brown and Lillie; Deacon Jackie Brown and Mavis; sisters Fannie Bell Ware and Eva Callins and Elder Frank Callins; dear friends AntonioWilkerson, Nathaniel Barnes and Anthony Summerfield. “My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness and my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips.” — Psalm 63:5- 6

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an obituary?

An obituary is a written notice that announces the death of a person, typically including their name, age, date of birth and death, and a brief biography. It may also include information about their family, accomplishments, and funeral or memorial services.

Why are obituaries important?

Obituaries serve as a way to inform friends, family, and community members of a person's passing, allowing them to pay their respects and offer condolences. They also provide a sense of closure and help to celebrate the life of the deceased.

Who writes an obituary?

Obituaries are typically written by family members or close friends of the deceased, although they may also be written by a funeral home or other organization. In some cases, the deceased may have written their own obituary in advance.

What information should be included in an obituary?

A typical obituary includes the person's name, age, date of birth and death, place of residence, occupation, education, and surviving family members. It may also include information about their hobbies, interests, and accomplishments.

How long should an obituary be?

The length of an obituary can vary, but it's generally recommended to keep it concise and focused on the most important details. A good rule of thumb is to aim for 150-200 words.

Can I include photos in an obituary?

Yes, it's never too late to write an obituary for someone who has passed away. This can be a meaningful way to honor their memory and share their story with others.

What is the difference between an obituary and a death notice?

A death notice is a brief announcement of a person's passing, typically including only the most basic information such as name, age, and date of death. An obituary is a longer, more detailed tribute that provides a fuller picture of the person's life.

Can I include quotes or poetry in an obituary?

Yes, many people choose to include quotes, poems, or other literary passages in an obituary as a way to add depth and meaning to the tribute.

Can I edit or revise an obituary after it's been published?

In some cases, it may be possible to make minor corrections or revisions to an obituary after it's been published. However, this is not always possible, so it's essential to proofread carefully before submission.

What is the cost of publishing an obituary?

The cost of publishing an obituary varies widely depending on the newspaper or online platform. Some may charge by the word or line, while others may offer package deals or discounts for longer tributes.

Can I publish an obituary online only?

Yes, many online platforms allow you to publish an obituary without printing it in a physical newspaper. This can be a cost-effective option that still allows you to share the news with friends and family.

How do I notify social media and online platforms about someone's passing?

You can usually notify social media and online platforms about someone's passing through their website or by contacting their customer support team directly. This helps ensure that their accounts are closed or memorialized appropriately.

What is the purpose of an online guestbook?

An online guestbook allows friends and family members to leave messages of condolence, share memories, and pay tribute to the deceased. It can be a meaningful way to connect with others who are grieving.

How long will an online obituary remain available?

The length of time that an online obituary remains available varies depending on the platform. Some may keep them active indefinitely, while others may remove them after a certain period of time.

Can I create a video or multimedia tribute instead of a written obituary?

How do I ensure that my loved one's legacy lives on after they're gone?
