     Crandell Benjamin Brown, 81, of Burgaw and formerly of Bladen County passed peacefully with loving family by his side on Friday, June 3, 2022 at Novant Medical New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

     He was born November 24, 1940 in Wilmington, the son of Oscar Benjamin Brown and Leona Horrell Brown.

     Crandell is survived by his beloved wife of 61 years, Louise Anders Brown; son, The Rev. Dr. Jeffery Keith Brown (Candace); daughters, Crystal Brown Perry (Doug) and Michelle Brown Neugebauer (Joe); grandsons, Brandon de Jong, Erik de Jong, Aaron Anderson (Heather), David Brown (Cheyenne), Jacob Kline, Zachary Kline, and Douglas Perry; sister, Diane McDuffie (Walter); brother, Rondell Brown (Gail); many nieces, nephews, extended family members and loyal friends.

     After working many years Crandell retired as a supervisor at DuPont where he made many lasting friendships. For many years Crandell faithfully  attended Haw Bluff Baptist Church, a church where he not only worshiped, but enjoyed Christian fellowship.

     Crandell loved life and was an avid Bass fisherman, member of Southeastern NC Mustang Club, enjoyed western movies/Three Stooges; and always kept an immaculate yard. Most of all Crandell loved and served his family; was a caring, loving husband, daddy, granddaddy, brother and great friend to many. His presence in our family circle will certainly be missed, but Crandell will always remain in our hearts.
