Brown, Jr., Clinton Obituary

Clinton Dean Brown Jr. suddenly transitioned to a new life at the Washington Hospital Center on Wednesday February 20, 2013.

Clinton Dean Brown Jr. was born September 14, 1948 in Washington, DC and was the eldest son of four children of Lillian Alma Brown and the late Clinton Dean Brown Sr. Clinton, Clint, Dean or Uncle Dean, as so fondly referred to, was a native Washingtonian, educated in the DC public school system attending Jefferson Jr. High School, The Western High School and the University of the District of Columbia (UDC). He was also a veteran of the US Armed Forces (Army), honorably discharged in 1971 after a stint in Germany.

Clinton was united in Holy Matrimony in 1978 with Karen Elizabeth Brown. Clinton had four sons: Taj Damian Brown, Stephon Maurice Seraile, Adrian Kevin Brown and Nealson Craig Brown.

Oh, who knows where the time goes? It was just yesterday when Dean asked, when explaining something to you, “Undastand?” He was always giving advice, and always had an opinion about everything, saying “I tell you the honest to goodness truth.”  Dean ate and breathed music, his collection of tapes, albums and CDs number in the thousands. With a broad knowledge of music, musicians, the history of group and bands; what musicians played with whom and how they got started, Clint could talk for hours with the best of them, even giving advice to radio hosts and other music enthusiasts. Everyone Dean met was his friend for life. He never severed a relationship and always sealed the deal by making his new friend a personalized CD tailored to fit their taste.

While employed by the US Commerce Department as a Master Printer for over 40 years, Clinton received many awards and accolades. He has been photographed many times with US Presidents and Department heads for his excellence and proficiency in printing and printing design. Deans hobbies included annually attending the Hampton Jazz Festival with the “festival crew;” going fishing along the eastern shore with the “fishing crew;” traveling to different places up and down the east coast, especially to New York to visit his son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren; playing cards especially pinochle and watching Western movies.

Clinton leaves to cherish his memory his wife, Karen Elizabeth Brown, his Mother, Lillian Alma Brown his four sons; Taj, Stephon, Adrian and Nealson; three (3) sisters: Barbara Jane Brown, Brenda Joyce Brown and Toni Muial Brown, all from Tucson, Arizona; one special brother, Paul M. Washington Jr.; one (1) uncle, Frank Brown; a beloved aunt, Mattie Pearl Bembury, and Sue Harriston; four  (4) grandchildren: Adrian, Simone, Adrian (AJ) and Chase; three nephews: Dion Addison, Casi Nick Brown and Paul M. Washington III; two (2) nieces: Doriun Brown and Tay Washington-Johnson, and a multitude of cousins, friends and acquaintances.
