John Michael Brown, Jr.
OCEAN PINES — John Michael (Mickey) Brown, Jr. passed away peacefully from a fierce battle with cancer in his home in Ocean Pines, surrounded by his family on July 16, 2020.
Mickey was born on Dec. 14, 1957 in Baltimore to John Michael Brown and Eleanor Jean Brown. One of seven children, Mickey spent his childhood riding bikes around the streets of Towson and fishing at Loch Raven reservoir, a hobby that would become his passion for the remainder of his life.
He met his high school sweetheart, Jane McDonald, at age 17 and never looked back. Their love story was one for the books. They were married in 1981 and recently celebrated their 39th anniversary.
They gave birth to their daughter, Meaghan, in 1983 and moved their life to Ocean City, settling in Ocean Pines. In 1984, they welcomed their son, John Michael Brown (Michael) III. Mickey and Jane attest that the decision to move to the Eastern Shore was one of the best decisions they ever made.
Mickey had a 40-plus year career in construction, starting as a teen on job sites in Baltimore. A Jack of All Trades, his work included managing large scale projects as well as being an estimator. He was known for his determination, grit and work ethic, traits that allowed him to support his children to reach their dreams and personally helped build a beautiful home for his family in Ocean Pines, two of his proudest accomplishments.
Mickey liked to work hard and play hard. He loved nothing more than spending time with his wife, children and extended family. He always kept busy, working on projects in his garage, helping friends, family and neighbors with their house projects, the occasional round of golf, but most importantly, spending time on his boat fishing with a cold beer in hand. He caught “thousands” of flounder on his beloved SeaCrafts over the past 35 years.
Mickey was a dedicated husband, loving father and loyal friend. He loved spending time with his bride, Jane, on peaceful bike rides and sunset boat cruises and spending time with their son, daughter and three young grandchildren. His happy place was a house full of family, grilling out or eating crabs and sparking up the firepit in the backyard. In addition to everything else, he was also an amazing host, whether at home or out and about he was always there with a delicious snack and a cold drink.
In addition to his mother, he is survived by his wife, Jane McDonald Brown of Ocean Pines; a daughter, Meaghan Kauffman and husband Paul of Millsboro; a son, John Micheal Brown III and wife Valerie of Baltimore; two brothers, Patrick Brown and Terry Brown; two sisters, Donna Angelozzi and Debbie Dougherty; several nieces, nephews and in-laws; three grandchildren; Hadley Kauffman, Trevor Brown and Griffin Brown; and his stepmother, Maxine Shank-Brown of Ocean City.
He was preceded in death by his father and sisters, Diane and Kerry Brown.
A private service will be held.
