Obituary for R. Bradford "Brad" Brown Jr.

R. Bradford “Brad” Brown Jr., 90, of Mifflintown passed away at 11:18 a.m., Thursday, September 13, 2018 at the Bridges at Brookline, Mifflintown.
Born on September 29, 1927, in Mifflintown, Juniata County, he was the son of the late R. Bradford Sr. and Mabel C. (Galbraith) Brown. On July 18, 1953, he married his late wife Barbra Jo (Heck) Brown, with whom he was blessed to share exactly 52 years of marriage before her passing on July 18, 2005.
Surviving are his children, Kelly L. Phenicie and her husband Mark, of Camp Hill, Daniel B. Brown and his wife Kathy, of Mifflintown, Robert L. Brown, of Mifflin, David R. Brown and his wife Kimberly, of Lewistown; and a daughter-in-law, Patricia E. Brown, of Mifflintown. He leaves behind six grandchildren, Carolyn B. Phenicie, Margaret K. Phenicie, Morgan E. Messerman and her husband Kevin, Seth R. Brown, Rachel E. Brown and Nicholas D. Brown
In addition to his parents, two sons, Bradford G. “BG” Brown and Matthew H. Brown, in infancy, preceded him in death, as did a grandson, Andrew Mark Phenicie, also in infancy.
He was a 1945 graduate of Juniata Joint High School and a 1946 graduate of the Cincinnati School of Embalming.
As a proud veteran he honorably served our country in the United States Army during the Korean War.
His past professional memberships included the National Funeral Directors Assoc., the Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Assoc. and the Juniata Valley Funeral Directors Assoc.
He is a member and elder of the Westminster United Presbyterian Church, Mifflintown, a member of the Mifflintown Hose Co. No. 1 and the Union Lodge No. 324 F&AM, Mifflintown. He was the last surviving founding member of the Mifflintown Lions Club, where he had served as president and he was awarded the prestigious Melvin Jones Fellowship award. He also served as the vice president of the Juniata County School Board and on the board of the Tuscarora Intermediate Unit 11.
Mr. Brown was a self-employed funeral director, having owned and operated the Brown Funeral Home, Mifflintown. He served as the fourth generation and eighth funeral director of the Brown family since its inception in 1845.
Brad and his late wife enjoyed traveling both in the United States and in Europe. Brad was an avid fixture on the golf course at Lost Creek for many years, and he was an ardent Phillies and Eagles fan. Brad was a proud husband, father and grandfather who cherished his time spent with his family. He was better known as Pada to his grandchildren, who will fondly remember his love of sharing a “good bite” and telling bad jokes.
