Bill Douglas Brown, also known to family and friends as “Bill D.,” age 75, died peacefully at his home on July 25, 2021.
He was born in Greeneville, Tennessee and was the son of the late Willie D. and Georgia Goodman Brown.
He was preceded in death by his two brothers Norman and Johnny Brown and his three sisters, Susie Dreger, Margaret Berger and Betty Jean Cogdell. Last, but not least, his beloved four-legged companion, Joe.
Bill was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Dickson, TN where he attended the Pioneer Men’s Sunday School Class.
Bill loved sales. He was a professional salesman. Most of his career was in Industrial Sales of Pipe and Pumps to Manufacturing facilities. But Bill especially loved the excitement of the deal when trading cars. This included his final deal of trading his wife’s new car for a newer car while sitting in his recliner. All of this done without her knowledge. Afterward, there was a big smile on his face and a wonderful memory for his family at pulling one over on Mom. He loved his wife, his children, his grandchildren, and the beach. He once said, “I am just a simple man.” Yes, he simply loved his family and life. But his family and friends will say he was simply the most loving and kind man they ever knew.
He is survived by his wife, Karyn Brown; his four children, Bryan Brown (Karla), Lorena Wright, Todd Brown (Jennifer) and Angela Frazier (Al); his eight grandchildren, Caden Brown, William Brown, Abby Frazier, Anna Frazier, Chad Hargis, Matt Hargis, Jonathan Myers and Morgan Hamilton (Patrick); his great granddaughter, Emma Hargis; and his sister-in-law, Patricia Hudson. Also surviving are several loving nieces and nephews.
