Johnny C. Brown, Sr., 48, of Cogan Station, passed away Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at Geisinger Jersey Shore Hospital.
Born April 17, 1972 in Jersey Shore, he was a son to the late Earl E. Brown Sr. and the former Anna M. Simcox.
Johnny worked for Cogan Valley Farms for 25 years alongside his late boss and good friend, Stanley Brass, and also alongside his son, Johnny C. Brown Jr. for 11 years. He had a passion for John Deere tractors, working on cars, farm auctions, classic country music, Scooby Doo cartoons, hunting and fishing with his children. He was selfless, humble and hardworking - a master of all trades. Johnny was an admirable, honest and funny man, who was always ready to help others, day or night. Some would say he had the "loudest sneeze ever."
He is survived by his children, Kristen (Jonathan) Hendershot of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Johnny C. Brown Jr. of Cogan Station, Timothy E. Brown and Alyssa L. Brown of Cogan Station; grandchildren: Jordan and Vaela; his companion, Brenda Pappas and two brothers, Earl E. Brown Jr. of Linden and Sheb W. (Molly) Brown of Trout Run.
