On Saturday, May 20, 2017, Henry Alfred Brown of Apex passed into eternal life. He was the oldest son of Henry Samuel Brown and Annie Carmen Keith Brown.

Mr. Brown was raised in Apex, earned a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering from N.C. State University, and spent his career in radar research at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. In 1963, he married Nancy Sue Maynard of Apex, and they lived mostly in the northern Virginia area. After retirement, they moved back to Apex and renovated his parents' home in the town.

Mr. Brown enjoyed taking his wife and two daughters camping, and handled the audio/visual needs of each church the family attended. In later years, he particularly enjoyed walking the streets of Apex with his dog Jake. The ice cream shop was a favorite stop.

Mr. Brown is survived by his wife of 53 years, his two daughters, Phyllis Brown of Goldsboro, and Kimberlee Brown Layton (Ron) of Cary, his brother Jerry Samuel Brown (Peggy) of Woodford, Va, and 6 grandchildren.
