Robert Browning Obituary
Robert Browning, who played a key role in launching Renaissance High School for the Arts and served as a father figure to Jordan High School theater students, died Sept. 11 of natural causes, family members said. He was 67.
"There are a number of students who would have never realized their abilities and dreams if not for Mr. Browning's involvement," said Felton Williams, vice president of the Long Beach Unified school board.
Williams, who grew up in San Pedro, met Browning through a friend when they were both teenagers. At the time Browning lived in nearby Wilmington. Williams described Browning, who began teaching for Long Beach Unified in 1986, as having a "heart as big as the world."
He believed that "the impossible was the possible. It was doable. That was his value belief in people," Williams said.
