Johnnie Eugene Brown was born on November 23, 1926 in Oliver, Georgia, to the late John Howard and Daisy Lou Brown. He was the youngest of eleven children born out of this sacred union. After a rich and fruitful life, Johnnie made his abrupt but peaceful transition from this earth plane on Tuesday, May 3, 2011 at approximately 4:00 a.m. All of the eleven Brown children are now deceased. Johnnie was educated in the Savannah, Georgia School System. He was always an ardent seeker of root knowledge and his search was rewarded with a profound understanding of the natural order of the universe – space, matter and time (SMAT). Johnnie had a wide range of interests. He served in both the Army and Navy, enjoyed a bout with flexing his muscles in the boxing arena, graduated from Drake Business School in Brooklyn, New York, where he studied drafting, and also attended Long Island University where he took several business courses. Johnnie was always a “seeker” and “independent thinker” (a true “Brown” trait) and businessman. He used his entrepreneurial talents to open The Bumble Bee, a novelty store in Brooklyn where he served dedicated customers for several years. He then worked for the U.S. Postal Service and was pleased to retire in 1990 to devote 100% of his time to his universal studies and to the completion of his books. Johnnie spent many precious moments with his family and enjoyed attending family reunions, birthday celebrations, graduations and weddings. He was always the center of attraction at these events because he shared so much of himself. In 1979, Johnnie met Joye Dixon, the love of his life, who, after a five-year courtship, became his beloved and devoted wife for 25 years, 11 months. Joye was the perfect match for Johnnie. She had a pleasing personality, possessed a sharp intelligent and of course had an abundance of “Southern hospitality”. Joye loved Johnnie unconditionally. After his retirement, Johnnie (who used the name Afroo Onoo in his publications) became even more deeply involved in his studies and writings. He and Joye had moved to Irvington, New Jersey which was an environment more conducive to contemplation, meditation and writing. Who can define Johnnie Brown? When asked by a family member years ago, “what do you call yourself”, and after musing over the question, he humbly answered, “I am a scientist.” And a scientist of the finest sort he truly was!! In 1973, Johnnie published his first writing, Are You Searching For Knowledge? If so, Read me!!! Moonset And Sunrise In the Nature of Nature. His first and second and books, copyrighted in 1993 and 1995, respectively, were titled, “NOONE: Introduction To The Nature Of Nature – Listen To Reason, Book One”; and “NOONE: Introduction To The Nature Of Nature, The Smat Circle of Order, Book Two”. Johnnie completed his third book which has not as yet been published. Each one of Johnnie’s books are a testimony to his profound wisdom and continuous spiritual growth. Johnnie leaves to cherish his memories: his beloved faithful wife, Joye; one brother-in-law, Edward Dixon, Jr.; five sisters-in-law, Elizabeth Brown, Cora Dixon, Diane Harrison (Gregg), Constance Fornis (Famous) and Esther Dixon; nine nieces, Dorothy Burton, Carrie Kettles, Mary Randolph, Pearlie Jackson, Shirley Michaels, Angela Hearst, Parmela Hardy, Jacqueline Richardson, Deborah Testamark; seven nephews, Freddie Brown, Jr., Joe Louis, Larry Brown, Isaiah Brown, Eugene Parker, J.C. Jackson and Hubbard Jackson, Jr.; two kin relatives and co-publishers, Arvin Bryant (Sipoo) and Arthur Simmons (Gepoo); a guard-son, Wendell Fornis; a guard-daughter, Rehtaa Johnson; and a host of great nieces, great nephews and friends. ~ Lovingly submitted by the family ~ This Online Memorial has been created to commemorate the life of Johnnie Brown.
