Charlie Brown Obituary

Charlie Brown, born Charles Lynn Brown on December 6, 1955 in Bakersfield, CA to Vesta Lucille Pollard and preceded in death by his father Bill Ray Brown. He passed into the loving arms of Jesus during the rainy skies on March 11, 2016.

At age 11, Charlie accepted Jesus into his life inspiring him to encourage many to walk with faith. As an avid athlete, he remained unsurpassed in every sport graduating from Bakersfield High School in 1974. He possessed the capability to light up the room and especially the dance floor with his signature moves. Known for his contagious laugh, positive attitude, and outstanding generosity were an inspiration to those he encountered. His love of animals like his tropical fish and his feathered parrot companion for more than 30 years "Charlie".

Charlie leaves behind his Brothers; Michael K. Brown, Gary Brown, Glen Brown, and Greg Brown, Sisters; Daina Sher and Lisa Pollard. His legacy includes his daughter; Shannon Dossey (husband Rick), Son; Ryan (wife Bobbi) and eight amazing grandchildren: Cameron Tooker, Dylan Tooker, Preston Tooker, Hudson Dossey, Samantha Dossey, Kylie Brown, Chase Brown and Hunter Brown. One sizzling hot truck and the catch phrase heard around the world "What's Crackin" will forever remain unforgettable!

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 29 at 11:00 a.m. at Valley Baptist Church, 4800 Fruitvale Ave., Bakersfield, CA 93308.
