Honoring Richard Brown

Richard H. Brown, beloved son and friend, passed from this life on January 20, 2019 at the age of 66 at his mountain home with friends by his side.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Anne and Frank Brown.  A native Nashvillian, he grew up here and graduated from David Lipscomb for both high school and college.

Richard was an entrepreneur, and will be remembered by many as a businessman; however, most will remember him for his kind heart, love of music and giving his gift back to God by playing organ and piano at many area churches including Nashville First Baptist Church, where in addition to playing organ and piano on the church staff also served as their Food Services Director; Forest Hills and Crievewood Baptist Churches. In addition, he frequently played for conferences at Ridgecrest and Glorieta.  To know Richard was to love him and he will be greatly missed by all who called him friend.

There will be a service to celebrate Richard’s life at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 26 at Nashville First Baptist Church, 108 7th Ave. S, in Nashville with a reception immediately following the service. Memorial contributions may be made to SeaStar Kids, P. O. Box 150511, Nashville, TN 37215 or to the charity of your choice.
