Lovett Brown Obituary

Lovett Brown, 81, departed this earthly life on May 2, 2023. He was born November 19, 1941, to Henry and Indiana Boyer Brown in Sparta, Georgia. Lovett was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He is survived by his wife, Carolyn Brown; daughters D’Nita L. Dennis, Kathy L. Brown, Karen Brown and Christie Brown, and grandchildren Jillian Wilson, Baldwin Wilson, and Keona Dessau. He also leaves behind two sisters: Joanne Oliver and Betty Scott. He is preceded in death by his parents and his siblings Paul Brown, Robert Brown, Charles Brown, James Porter Brown, and Kathy S. Brown. He was a loyal and lifelong member of his family church, Mitchell Chapel A.M.E Church, where served as a member of the choir and the steward board for many years.

After marrying Carolyn and spending several years in Philadelphia, they chose to return to Georgia and raise their family, closer to his parents. There, they built a home and instilled the importance of education, hard work, and family. Lovett made his mark as a “girl dad” before the phrase became a part of pop culture and was often seen with at least one of his girls in tow. He was greatly loved and admired, not only his immediate family, but by cousins, nieces, and his nephews. He is known in our family for proving his point and making all of us laugh. He was greatly loved, respected, and admired by us all.

Lovett was a proud alumnus of Hancock Central High School, graduating in 1962, he was an active participant in numerous clubs and athletic teams. Lovett remained a dedicated supporter of his school and community, serving twelve terms on the Hancock County School Board Of Education and volunteering his time and services to various athletic programs. He was outspoken in his belief that the children of Hancock County deserved a quality education and adequate facilities. One of his proudest moments as a Board member was when the students of Hancock County entered the doors of Marvin E. Lewis Elementary School and the new Hancock Central High School. He truly believed in both the power and value of education.

 A man of true integrity, Lovett would not compromise on his beliefs. He was known to stand strong in his convictions, even in the face of opposition. When he believed in something he fought for it. When he befriended someone, he stood by them. When he loved someone, he both challenged and supported them. He was protective, proud, loving, and God-fearing. His passing has left an unfillable gap in the hearts of all who loved him, and his existence in the world has made it a better place.
