Mr. Brown, the son of Frank H. Brown & Juanice Reeves Brown, was born Sept. 2, 1934, in Italy, TX. From 1957 – 1959, he served in the United States Army. For 18 years, he worked for the Safeway Warehouse in Garland as meat manager. In 1977, he and Dorothy moved to Paris to help establish and build the Bible Camp. In 1978, he began working at Industrial Uniform & Towel (Aramark), and later he worked five and one half years at L. P. McCuistion Regional Medical Center. His proudest job was as building superintendent at East Paris Baptist Church for 24 years. Arthur was a very faithful member of East Paris Baptist Church where he was fondly known as “Brother Art”. He served as a deacon until his health failed. Ministers were supported by Art’s “AMEN” or “COME ON SON”, which he loudly proclaimed from his Amen corner. He loved everyone and had a loving personality. Art never met a stranger and his smile and laughter were contagious.
