Mr. Robert Lee Brown was born on June 06, 1944 to the late Glennie and Mamie Graves Brown in Caswell County, North Carolina. He   departed his earthly life, and passed away peacefully surrounded by family, for his heavenly home on April 22, 2020.

Robert attended the public schools of Caswell County, North Carolina. He was a member of Graves Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, where he lifted up the name of Jesus by serving as a piano player for over 55 years. Over the past 20 years Robert drove both the high school and elementary school buses for Caswell and Alamance counties. He was also a retiree of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, in Danville, Virginia. Robert’s favorite pastime was teaching other inspiring music students how to play the piano (he taught many students over the years), along with relaxing at any fishing spot that he could find!
