Joe Brown Obituary, Death – Ryan Patrick Kelly Mourns Joe Brown On Social Media – I have one more stop to make before I leave, and it’s going to be to see my favorite uncle, who lives in Bethpage. In fact, I’m already on my way there. It was only a few days ago when we learned of Uncle Joe Brown Brown’s passing, which came as a complete and total shock. Uncle Rick was the name that he was known by to all of the members of our extended family, including my brother, my sister, and all of our cousins. Out of the five, he was the one with the fewest years of professional experience under his belt. The title of “eldest of us” was traditionally held by our mother. In my opinion, he was more of a stepfather or a surrogate father figure than he was an uncle.
I held him in the highest regard. To be more specific, more along the lines of a reliable companion! My earliest recollections of him involve him being a significant figure in my life at one point or another in the distant past. He was such a funny and caring person, and he was there for anyone and everyone at any time they needed him. Had an exceptionally high level of energy, which made it challenging for others to compete with them in the same arena. In addition to working for the Bethpage Fire Department at one point in his career, he also spent some time as a firefighter for the North Massapequa Fire Department. It had become an annual tradition for him to attend the firehouse dressed as Santa Claus, much to the delight of the other firefighters.
This man is a devoted friend and an esteemed member of his community, but he prioritizes his family above all else. You will be absent from this world in a way that is both painful and difficult to fathom. I am looking forward to the next time we speak. I am grateful that you greeted your parents with my best wishes on my behalf. Uncle Rick, I am going to miss you so very much. Rest in peace. Please make sure that Stephanie and Deanna, in addition to the children and grandchildren, are not forgotten about.
