Robert Leon Brown Obituary

Robert Leon Brown born January 18, 1947 in Ontario, Oregon, passed away peacefully in his home with his family on May 14, 2016.

Rob was a graduate of Marysville High School, a lifelong resident of Yuba County, and a Plant Manager for Campbell's Soup Company in Dixon, California for 25 years. Although Rob had a gruff exterior and he was often times misunderstood, he most definitely cared deeply for his family. He opened his heart and his home to many, some of whom he considered to be his own. Rob worked hard to provide for his family and didn't think twice to about working extra shifts during tomato season to provide for them. At the end of the day, Rob may not have had much, but he had his family and that was what mattered most. He has been known to give you the shirt off of his back, not kidding.

Rob was preceded in death by his parents Eva and Preston Brown, brother Skip Brown, and his son Preston Brown.

Rob is survived by his wife Kathy Brown of 44 years; brother Dennis Brown; brother-in-law Harrold Maddox; son Wesley Brown; daughter Robin Brown, and (Robin's children) Rob's grandchildren as follows; Nicholas Cowee, twins Gracie and Emma Garcia, Eva Jane Garcia, and Cortez Garcia.

Private services will be held.
