Kenneth Lee Brown



            WADESBORO – On Sunday, April 30, 2023, Kenneth Lee Brown, 18, passed away to be in the presence of God due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident.


            Funeral services will be 2:00 PM, Thursday, May 4, 2023, at First Baptist Church, Lee Avenue, Wadesboro with Rev. Kevin Ricketts and Rev. Jerome Cash officiating. Interment will follow in the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church Cemetery.


            The family will greet friends from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM Wednesday, May 3, 2023, at the funeral home and other times at the home on Pinkston River Road.


            Kenneth was born December 29, 2004, in Union County, NC, and was the youngest child born to Renee Taylor and Mitchel Lee Brown. He was currently employed with Papa Joes in Wadesboro and was a senior classman at Anson High School.


            He was recently recognized by the Town of Wadesboro while doing an internship with the maintenance department and he was looking forward to being an employee with the Town of Wadesboro following graduation.


            Kenneth enjoyed playing golf and spending time at the lake with his family and friends. He never met a stranger and had a great personality. He had a huge heart and would give anyone the shirt off his back. He enjoyed his co-workers and Papa Joes, as well as, getting to know the customers there.


            Most of all, he accepted Christ as his savior and was baptized at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church where he was a member.


            Those who will cherish his memory are his parents, Renee Taylor (Benny Dennis) of Wadesboro and Mitchel Brown (Joannie Barnhill) of Lilesville; his sisters, Kelsey Brown (Harris Elder) of Albemarle and Kaitlyn Brown (Bryson Stogner) of Lilesville; his grandparents, Jan Taylor and Jackie Taylor both of Wadesboro and Darnel Brown Teal (Joey) of Morven; his aunts and uncle, Stephanie Dutton (Legrand) of Lilesville, Kenneth Taylor (Shanna) of Newport News, VA and Christy Taylor of Myrtle Beach, SC; special family members, Stanley ”Bubba” Parker and Kayla Carpenter; his cousins, great-aunts and great-uncles, friends, Papa Joes family, and Pleasant Grove Church family.
