Jonathan Charles Brown

Dec 11 1982 - Aug 13 2009

Our special angel, Jonathan Charles Brown, age 26, passed away peacefully on August 13, 2009. Born December 11, 1982, he succeeded despite life’s challenges, growing up to be a sweet and caring son, brother and friend to many. Believing that it was better to give than to receive, he generously gave himself to his church, family, friends, various community organizations and church sponsored building projects for St. Jude Catholic Church and First Baptist Church of Allen. Jonathan participated for many years in the Allen Special Olympics and touched so many people with his smile. He valued time fishing with family and friends and working alongside his brother on their cars. He was wise beyond his years and taught us all the value of friends and family. Jonathan will be greatly missed by all he touched. Preceded in death by his grandfathers, Charles “Pappa” Brown and Richard Fruda. He is survived by his parents, Gary and Vicki Brown of Allen, Texas; brother, Nicholas Brown of Frisco, Texas; grandmothers, Sylvia Brown and Ruth Fruda of Warrensburg, New York and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
