Cochran Funeral Home and Crematory of Blairsville announces funeral services for Mr. Junior Franklin Brown, age 80, of Blairsville, who passed away on Saturday, December 7th, 2019.
Mr. Brown was born in Blairsville, and lived there for most of his life. He was a son of the late Harmon Brown and the late Gladys Nelson Brown. Junior served his country in the U.S. Navy during the Cold War. A member of Choestoe Baptist Church, Junior loved the Lord and loved his family. He was a hard-working man, and believed in working to support your family. He was a kind, good man, who thrived being outdoors-fishing, hunting, and enjoying what God has provided us with in His beautiful world. He will be remembered as a giver, not a taker - working with his own hands using the gifts that God gave him - a man of fairness, loyalty, and commitment.

Brown, Nate G. Brown and wife Barbie Ann; and one great granddaughter, Raelynn Brown. Many other relatives and friends also survive.
