Charles P. Brown, Jr. passed away peacefully on July 5, 2018 at Sentara CarePlex Hospital. He was born in Newport News, VA on February 9, 1944 and raised in Hampton by his parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Charles P. Brown, Sr. He was a proud graduate of Phenix High School, class of 1962, where he was an outstanding athlete and student.

He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Norfolk State University, after which he served as a Peace Corp volunteer in the Philippines where he taught mathematics. Upon his return to the United States, he and Pam were immediately married and began their careers as educators in the Hampton School System, as well as the family they had planned and dreamed about during their freshman year at Virginia State. Charles became a well-known football coach at Bethel High School and Hampton University. He enjoyed teaching the game of football to high school and college students but he was most known for teaching the game of life. He leaves to cherish his memory, his wife of 49 years, Pamela Carrington Brown; three sons, Milan (Tina), Morocco (Kendra) and Marseilles Brown. He is also survived by six grandchildren, Mekhi, Nyla, Sanaa, Macari, Macaiden and Makailyn Brown; one godson, Charles R. Badger, Jr.; and two goddaughters, Aissa Agcanas and Kymani Pearson-Brown.
