Sunset: July 4, 2021
On Saturday, July 4, 2021, Winslow “Goose” Brown said good-bye to this old world and took that flight to his heavenly home.
Winslow was born to the late Deacon Marvin and Rosa Brown, on April 29, 1955, in Williamsburg County. He was proceeded in death by three sisters and six brothers.
Winslow was educated in the Florence County Public School System. After graduation from Carver High School, he enlisted in the United States Army. While in the army, Winslow studied computer technology. He served eight years dutifully. Upon on honorable discharge, Winslow moved to Philadelphia, PA. There he met and married Renee Sneed.
Winslow was employed by Progressive Furniture, the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, and the Waterfront. He held a certification as a Power Industrial Truck Operator.
Winslow enjoyed fixing cars, spending time with his family, and telling jokes. No matter how down you may have been, he had a word of encouragement and a joke to lift you up. There was never a time you’d ask him to do something for you and he didn’t do it. He could be heard saying “I’ll do anything for my family!”
After retirement, Winslow returned home to Lake City. He joined Greater St. John BHC and accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.
He left to cherish his memories, seven devoted sons: Winslow Brown II, Raynard Brown, Davon Brown, Devin (Gladys) Spady Sr., Damin (Terron) Spady Sr., Davel (Lynnair) Spady Sr. and Kimey Wong Sr., all of Philadelphia, PA; the loving mothers of his children: Renee Brown and Orscell Spady both of Philadelphia, PA; thirty five doting grandchildren, two God-children: Elaine and Delaine Jones; two devoted sisters: Ruby (Joe Nathan) Singletary of the home, and Sara Ducksworth; two loving brothers: James (Ella Mae) Brown of Lake City, SC and John (Mary Beth) Barr of Hendersonville, NC along with a host of nieces and nephews, which includes his “ride or die” Wanda Gunter and his “Dennis the Menace”, Tracy Thompson of the home and a list of friends that were as close as family, especially Ronald Doughty, Eric Holmes, Elihue (Mike) Mack Jr. Eugene Smart and Richard Doughty.
