George and his twin brother, Tommy were raised on a little farm on Sandy Hill Road in Wetipquin, Maryland. George served his country in the U.S. Army from 1962 to 1965. He grew up having a close bond with his brother, and they shared many special times together. In his early years, he began working on the water in Nanticoke, crabbing and oystering. Once moving to Delmar with his brother, they became known as the “Brown Brothers” to all those who knew them. He and his brother spent the next 40 years working together for P&A Paving and then for Jim and Jeff Brown at Chesapeake Paving. They were true pioneers in the paving business, always arriving early for work and remaining dependable and reliable employees for all their working years. He was a NASCAR fan, and his favorite driver was Dale Jarrett. They loved to watch dirt track racing and had a lot of friends in the racing community. For years, he and Tommy attended the Georgetown Speedway on Friday nights and the Delaware International Speedway in Delmar on Saturday nights, and also helped sponsor and work on car #33, which Brad Trice raced. Additionally, George and Tommy were faithful followers of the Hastings Butcher Shop every Thursday morning at 9 am both Brown brothers would additionally pick up separate orders for friends such as Billy Collingsworth and Rodney Long. He also had a wonderful knowledge of politics, and stayed informed on the current issues facing our country. George is survived by his special friends, Billy and Patsy Collingsworth. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Rosalee Jones; and his twin brother, Thomas H. Brown.
