I have known Brownie for several years and have had many enjoyable conversations with him. His gentle nature is very apparent, and I knew him as a great encourager. Brownie always ran his Leather Worx business with integrity, and consistently considered the interests of his customers to be his primary concern. He was most certainly an excellent example of a good Christian man. I, and many others, with miss him deeply.
