Frank Dixon Brown was born May 17, 1938, in Franklin AL, to the union of Rosie Garrett McArthur Brown and Hazel Brown. We take great solace in his peaceful transition in San Antonio TX on July 10, 2021, while in the care of his nephew James Pencil McArthur and his wife Lucy as well as his niece Deadra Jackson who helped nurture, encourage, and love during his fruitful life of 83 years.
Frank Brown who was affectionately known as Uncle Frank, was always the life of family gatherings with many great stories to tell and often ruled the dance floor. He became deaf at an early age but was able to overcome it by becoming a master at reading lips and body language. He moved to Cameron Louisiana where he worked at the Zapata fish processing plant until he retired in 1993.
Once he moved from Cameron to Lake Charles, he obeyed the gospel and became a dedicated member of the Mill Street Church of Christ. Frank was an avid fisherman and a dapper dresser who loved spending time with family. He was extremely competitive in dominoes, spades and checkers, never willing to accept defeat.
Mr. Brown was preceded in death by his late wife Octavia, his parents, Rosie McArthur Brown and Hazel Brown; (10 brothers) William McArthur, James D. McArthur, Willie L. McArthur, Joe S. McArthur, Monroe McArthur, John C McArthur, Richard Brown, Henry Brown, A. C. Brown, and Rayford McClain Sr.; (8 sisters) Lottie M. Parker, Thelma Johnson, Bernice Brown, Ola M. Abney, Bertha A. Williams, Gussie M. Jackson, Betty M. McArthur, and Fannie M. McArthur.
He leaves to cherish his memories; siblings, Louise Cole of Lake Charles LA, Voncille Mallory of New York City NY, Pearlie M. Brown of Akron OH, Francis King of Pensacola FL, George McArthur of St Elmo AL, and Fred McArthur of Atlanta GA, godson James Pencil McArthur, and a host of relatives, nieces and nephews and friends.
