Brown, Lewis A.

Age 90, of Gillett, PA entered into the arms of His Lord and into his eternal home, promised to him, {John 14:2 "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."} on Friday, September 13, 2013. He was born on March 8, 1923, the son of the late Leroy and Pearl (Lewis) Brown. His loving wife of 64 years, Iva E. "Betty" Brown preceded him in death on August 20, 2011. He is survived by daughters, Linda D. (Raymond) MacAuslan of Gillett, PA; Kathleen A. (Mickey) Millen of Gillett, PA; sons, James L. (Virginia) Brown of Loysville, PA; Gerald E. (Faith) Brown of Gadsden, TN; eight grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren; sisters, Marian Campagna of Lindley, NY; Alice Ballard of Horseheads, NY. Lewis was a long-time faithful member of the Mosherville Bible Church and the Gillett Senior Citizens Organization. He was a man of God, devoted to his Church for many years where he was the Sunday School Superintendent and taught Child Evangelism Release Time Classes. He enjoyed his time with the Sunday School and he was always concerned about children. He will be remembered for his quiet spirit, his faithfulness to prayer, patience and his "slow to answer" responses. Lewis had a deep caring and abiding love for all of his family and he expressed and showed that caring love daily. He loved to have his family come home for meals and loved to share ice cream with his friends. He loved picnics and was always ready to leave for one. He enjoyed hunting, farming, especially haying, riding his 1948 Ford tractor and milking the cows. He had a passion for old tractors and for his ice cream. He was a WWII Veteran of the US Army Air Corp and served his country in Trinidad and Puerto Rico. He worked for many years at the Remington Rand and after its closing as a welder. He could fix anything and everything with his special "cobbling" skills. Family and friends are invited to gather at the Olthof Funeral Home, Inc. 1050 Pennsylvania Ave. Elmira/Southport, NY on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.
