Obituary for Mordecai Walter Brown

Goodbyes hurt the most when the story is not finished…Mordecai Walter Brown, IV; affectionately called “Morty” suddenly passed away at the age of 40 on Thursday, March 1, 2018, in Manhattan, NY. Morty was born December 22, 1977 in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, to Peter Brodis Brown and the late Keiko Kinjo White.
Morty was an avid learner and took great pride in expanding his knowledge and furthering his education. He was a 1995 graduate of North High School in Hagerstown, MD, received an Associate Degree in Accounting from Professional Business College, NYC and an Associate Degree in Graphic Design from Technical Career Institute, NYC. In his search for knowledge and adventure, Morty joined the United States Army on October 31, 2000, served in combat (Afghanistan and Persian Gulf Wars) and was honorably discharged January 14, 2004.
Morty enjoyed hair barbering, boxing, and other sports, traveling reading, physical fitness, movies, music, attending plays and other cultural arts and activities. He worked as a private chauffer and taxi driver in New York City. Morty had a “big heart” and was very loyal, free-spirited and light hearted. He gave his life to Christ at an early age and loved the Lord and diligently read his bible daily. If you had the opportunity to meet Morty, his presence and jovial attitude towards others was unforgettable. He often gave comfort in times when he needed it the most. Morty was very generous and would share anything that he had with you.
He is survived by his loving parents: Reverend Dr. Peter Brodis Brown and Keiko Kinjo White (deceased), Grandparents: Mordecai P. Brown, Sr. and Norma E. Brown (deceased), Siblings: Michelle A. Brown, Reuben White and James White, Jr., Brother-in-law Shawn O’Leary, Nephews: Trevon Robinson, Davonte Brown, and niece Deborah O’Leary. Lifelong friends Stanley Leazer and Malcom Smith and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and extended family.
A memorial gathering will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 11:00AM at the Ebenezer AME Church, 26 Bethel St. Hagerstown, MD, followed by interment at Rose Hill Cemetery.
