Joshua David Brown Obituary

Josh Brown, age 43, passed away February 8, 2015 from complications of pneumonia and heart disease. Josh was born in San Francisco and spent his early years in Yuba City before moving to Stockton. After graduating from St. Mary's High School, Josh served in the United States Navy on the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln, where he was deployed in the Gulf War. After leaving the Navy, Josh settled in the Stockton area where he lived and worked over the last twenty years. He spent the majority of his career as a service writer in the auto body repair industry. Josh had an enduring love of music which was passed down from his mother, and he often shared his amazing music knowledge with his family and friends. He performed locally in the rock band Strutter. He was also a huge fan of the band KISS, and frequently won local Halloween costume competitions with his Paul Stanley impersonation. Josh became a Dallas Cowboys fan early in his life and faithfully maintained his loyalty throughout the years. His greatest joy was spending time with his family, friends, and dogs, and he carried his zest for life up until the very end.

Josh was preceded in death by his father, David Brown of Yuba City and Stockton. He is survived by his mother, Elizabeth Hall and stepfather John Hall of Scotts Valley; son Corey Brown of Stockton; sisters Lisa Brown and Annie Oakden (Jonah) of Dublin; nephew Seamus Oakden and niece Sophia Oakden of Dublin; and many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.
