George Nason Brown passed away peacefully at home on January 14, 2023. He was born November 25,1941 in St. Petersburg, FL at his parent’s home. George is preceded in death by his parents, George and Anna, his sister Dorothy and the mother of his girls Sharon. He is survived by his daughters Melissa and Marcie (Drew), his grandsons Nason and Jaiden, his brother James as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
George graduated from St. Petersburg High School in the spring of 1960; a member of the basketball team as well as the baseball team. He went on to earn his Associates degree from St. Petersburg Junior College in January of 1962. George was drafted into the US Army in 1963 where he proudly served his country for two years, spending most of his time in Vietnam as a radio operator. He was awarded a combat infantry badge, Vietnam Service Medal and was an expert M-14 rifleman. George owned his own seafood business, Brownie’s Seafood. After years of owning he sold the business to another seafood market and continued working there for more than 25 years. Although his time at Save On Seafood ended abruptly he was thankful that it gave him many more years to spend with his family and watch his grandsons Nason and Jaiden grow up. George was an avid bowler for most of his adult life; he was very competitive in both bowling and tennis.
George was known by many names; Brownie, Papa Brown, Dad, G-Dad, Granddad, and Mullet Man. He lived a great life and wouldn’t want anyone to mourn his loss but rather toast his life with a Fireball in hand; remembering all the good times and the laughs. He was an amazing man who was loved by all who knew him; forever our hero and our friend. George will never be forgotten.
Service will be held on Friday, February 10, 2023 at 10:45 AM at Bay Pines Memorial, 10000 Bay Pines Blvd St. Petersburg FL.
