Allegany-Gregory Morris Brown “Father, Grandfather & Friend”

 We are heartbroken to announce that Gregory Morris Brown, 68 years old, passed away on Monday November 11, 2023.

Greg was born on December 14, 1954 in Chicago, Illinois to parents Lellie and Ralph Brown. Greg and his brother Ralph and mother Lellie lived in Coral Gables, Florida where he spent his childhood.

Greg spent his summers in Chattanooga, Tennessee with his beloved grandparents and has many relatives in that area to this day that will miss him dearly. Greg was a graduate of Coral Gables Academy in 1973. After moving to New York City with his mother they subsequently settled in Olean. Olean is where he would marry Karen Manners and start a family and career. He was employed at Dresser-Rand/Siemens as a machinist for 42 years having retired just 6 years ago. Greg was happiest when he was outdoors. He loved to fish growing up in Florida and always fished with his grandfather as a young boy. He passed that joy on by fishing with his children and grandchildren.

 He was an avid outdoorsman he enjoyed skiing, hunting, fishing, and riding four wheelers. He was a friend to all, enjoying just talking with people, hearing their stories, and enjoying their company. He treasured relationships with his friends and family and would always do anything to help someone in need. Greg’s sense of humor was unmatched. People were always smiling and laughing in his company. Greg was lighthearted and always saw the good in situations. Words can’t express how much he will be missed.

He is predeceased by his beloved mother, Lellie J. Morris, and father Ralph I. Brown. He leaves behind his brother Ralph (Joan) Brown Jr. of Flintstone, Georgia, Karen Manners of Olean, daughter Jennifer Cunningham (Matthew) and son Keith Brown (Amber) both of Austin, Texas. He also leaves behind loving grandchildren, Noah Brown of Portville, Emily, Caroline Cunningham, Holly and Halen Brown of Austin, Texas.

In the words of his sweet granddaughter - “I just wasn’t ready to say goodbye to him yet” .
