Harry Franklin Brown 5/10/1936 to 10/26/2021 (85 years old). On October 26, 2021, Harry graduated from earth into Heaven at Genesis Pine Lodge Nursing Home in Beckley, WV. Harry was passionate about being a follower of Jesus Christ and he shared the good news of Jesus everywhere he went. Nothing mattered more to him than sharing Jesus, but two notable affections were his love for his humble home and land in Gap Mills and his love of animals; with his favorite fur-baby being his beloved Sug-Sug who faithfully stayed by his side until Harry had to move into the nursing home. Thankfully, Sug-Sug was allowed to visit him at the nursing home and that brought Harry such joy.
Harry had many friends and extended family in the Gap Mills and surrounding communities. He is survived by his daughter (Joanna Bowman) and son (Daniel Brown), who both live out of state. Harry’s children are extremely grateful for the care that was given to their dad over the many years by Harry’s neighbors, friends and especially, the Mennonite community of Gap Mills.
