We humbly request discretion at this time because we require a moment to digest the unthinkable.
To put into words the depths of my grief.
Our family is devastated. Devastated. Devastated. Beyond heartbroken. Barely able to breathe. We respectfully ask for privacy at this time because we need a minute to process the unthinkable. To articulate the depths of profound sadness.
This is my mom’s husband for sixty one years, mine and JJ’s dad, Elijah and Levi’s Pop Pop, older brother to George and brother in law to Pat and extended family to Chris, Hihat, Damian and Derell. It’s too terrible.
It will never not be. It’s a shock. He was literally snatched out of our lives. It’s not real for us yet. So there will be more to say but not now. Dad was the absolute best. We love him so very much.

Brown is best known for his role as building superintendent Nathan Bookman in the CBS sitcom Good Times from the 1970s.
J. J. Evans, the show’s primary character, was frequently the target of fat jokes directed at Bookman (Jimmie Walker). Brown played Bookman until 1979, when the show was terminated. Brown has also appeared in shows such as The Flip Wilson Show, The Jeffersons, Family Matters, Sister, Sister, The Jamie Foxx Show, The Wayans Brothers, and Martin.
Brown played a railroad dining car server in the 1970 film The Out-of-Towners. When Brown was a kid in Harlem, he went to school alongside Walter Dean Myers.

Brown played a schoolteacher who pushes his chorus line of kids to use this pen for their school work in an elaborate musical piece called “Write On, Brothers, Write On.”
Brown’s voice was used to introduce the compilation CD Comedy Stew: The Best of Redd Foxx in 1997. Brown recounts in the introduction how Norman Lear had considered Brown for the role of Lamont in Sanford and Son, but he was unavailable due to a prior engagement to Laugh-In, prompting Lear to cast Demond Wilson instead.
