Glenn Wallace Brown was born August 15, 1931, in Mt. Sterling, KY, the son of Perry & Aleyne Williamson Brown. He was a graduate of Cairo High School, Emory at Valdosta, Georgia Southwestern, and Southern College of Optometry in Memphis. Doc also proudly served his country in the United State Army during the Korean War. Since 1961, he loved and served his community in many capacities but mainly through his work at Bainbridge Vision Clinic and Lions Club. In his later years, Doc and Dottie had a special ministry serving blind individuals with transportation and assistance with daily needs. He was a member of First United Methodist Church.

With a thirst for knowledge, it should come as no surprise Doc had many interests and talents. He was a master in the woodworking shop, a computer savvy nonagenarian, a ham radio operator, a Sudoku expert, a beekeeper, and a horologist. He was a Silver Beaver Scout (highest honor) and remained involved in scouting for decades. Doc enjoyed a good round of golf but found “the shop” was his place. Every project was made with love (including heirloom furniture and other treasures for family) and every watch or clock was repaired with thoughts and memories shared. Doc’s pens were gifted to generations who knew him by other names such as Daddy Doc, Buddy Brown, Uncle Bud, Uncle Glenn and always “friend”. He loved his people and spent his life encouraging and motivating others to be their best.

Survivors include his wife of 50 years, Dottie S. Brown; his children Claudia Brown and Cathy & John Bridges; his grandchildren, Christopher Rabon, Curtis Rabon, Julie & Nick Haire, Alicia & David Driggers, Maggie & Will Kearney, Maddox & Katie Bridges, Perry Bridges, Annie & Andrew Register, Ellie Bridges, Henry Howell, Charlie Howell, and Edward Howell; and his six great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, Glenn was preceded in death by his children, Chris Brown Howell and Glenn Brown, Jr., and his siblings, Claudia Brown Thompson and Thomas Williamson Brown.
