MICHAEL LONNIE ROMELL BROWDEN, 27, passed away along with his loving wife, Nicole on Monday, Jan. 28, 2013, in Clarks ville, Mo., as a result of an auto accident. Born in Chicago, Ill., Michael worked as a dietary aide at Sunset Manor, Maysville, Mo. Michael was a very caring and easy going young man and was everyone's favorite little brother. His sense of humor often was reflected by his love of a good prank that his family came to expect. He enjoyed being the perfect uncle and bonding with each one of his nieces in his special way. "Michael had a big heart and was always willing to help his neighbors. He was a loving husband, son, brother and uncle and will be greatly missed, but his memory will live on in our hearts." Surviving are his father, Benjamin Browden Jr. of Fort Wayne; mother, Vivicca Marlene Browden of Fort Wayne; sister, Francinevia (Kwesi) Abair of China; brothers, Lonzell Christmas Jr. and Benjamin Browden III, both of Fort Wayne; grandparents, Frances and Lonnie Smith of Chicago, Ill.; grandmother, Icylena Browden of San Jose, Calif.; aunts, Lonnetta Girardin of York, Pa. and Regina Buie of Milwaukee, Wis.; several aunts and uncles in California; and nieces, Elysia Abair, Layla Abair, and Addison Browden.
