Obituary for Austin Tyler Brown

January 19, 2018


On Friday, January 19, 2018, our precious and awesome son, Austin Tyler Brown, was called home to be with his Heavenly Father. He was 22.

Austin was born to John and Rita Brown in Meadowbrook, PA at Holy Redeemer Hospital and was the light and joy of our lives. Growing up, Austin had a wicked sense of humor and razor sharp wit. His fun-loving nature, sense of adventure and creativity always kept us entertained and laughing. He had the most gentle, kind and sensitive spirit. Austin loved all music, from rock to jazz to swing to all the old-time singers and bands. He also loved to play guitar and piano and loved movies. Austin also loved all animals, but especially his beloved dog, Marley, who was his constant companion. Some of his other favorites included his hometown of Doylestown, PA, the many beautiful rivers and lakes of Bucks County, the beach and boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ, Chinese food, cheeseburgers, charades, anything made with sugar and all things purple. Austin's sweet nature and natural charm drew people to him. He attended Doylestown United Methodist Church and was involved with the youth group there.

Austin graduated from Central Bucks East High School in 2013, where he was a member of the Varsity track and swim teams. He also played basketball and sang in the choir. After high school, he attended Bucks County Community College. He then lived for a year with his grandparents, Richard and Judy Richardson, in North Carolina. He so enjoyed the Open Door Sunday School class at First Baptist Church in Randleman, NC and all the wonderful friends he made there and helping out with the food pantry. Currently, he was proudly serving as an Airman in the U.S. Navy.

Austin was the very best big brother to Alex (19) and is also survived by his parents, John and Rita Brown, his loving grandparents Richard and Judy Richardson, with whom he shared a very special relationship, his Uncle Marc Richardson and his son Corbin, his Uncle Ronny Richardson, (Tiffany), his nephew Jackson, his Aunt Donna Ridgway (Steve), his Aunt Karen Curry and her son Conor and daughter Brett, as well as many other great aunts, uncles, and extended family in NC and PA.

Relatives and friends are welcome to meet at Doylestown United Methodist Church, 320 Swamp Rd, Doylestown, PA 18901 at 9:30am, Friday, Jan. 26th to proceed to Washington Crossing National Cemetery, 830 Highland Rd, Newtown, PA 18940 for a graveside service with full military honors at 11 am. The procession will leave at precisely 10:00am.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bucks County SPCA, PO Box 277, Lahaska, PA 18932.

The love we had for Austin will sustain us and stay in our hearts forever until we meet again…we love you Austin. To share your fondest memories of Austin, please visit
