Lowell "Gene" Brown, 76, of Fairview Heights, Illinois, born, February 6, 1941 in East St Louis, Illinois passed away on his 58th wedding anniversary, on November 7, 2017 with his family by his side.

Lowell, formerly known as Gene to friends and family, possessed a charismatic personality, dedicated persona and was devoted to his family. It was truly the biggest part of his life. He met the love of his life, Jeanette Canty, in the 5th grade and took her hand in marriage on November 7, 1959. To this union brought four children. Gene was known as a jack of all trades. Gene was the owner of Brown's Home Improvement. He built his first home at the age of 17 and loved engaging in wood work, carpentry and the construction of homes. He also enjoyed going on camping trips with his family. He loved the outdoors but he also was a huge animal lover and couldn't quite bring himself to hunt them, but just enjoy the time spent with his friends. Gene will always be remembered as the best husband and dad and having a good heart, literally. He was a fighter and cherished the 76 years he was blessed with on this earth. He was a loving husband, dad, grandpa, great grandpa, brother, uncle and friend. He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him.

He was preceded in death by his infant granddaughter, Courtney Lynn Isselhard; his parents, Lillard and Hilda (nee Bardmass) Carmen and his siblings; Lillard Brown, Bill Brown, Charlotte Watts and Cecil Brown.
