What is the measure of a man? Is it his accomplishments, his relationships, or his service to the community? Michael Antonio Brown, affectionately known as “Mike,” was a man of many facets. To his family, he was a loving and a caring son; a loving, devoted, and compassionate husband and father; a loving brother, son-in-law, brother-in-law, uncle, and cousin. To classmates and companions, he was a loyal friend who maintained contact with those he knew and loved from kindergarten through college and in his professional life. To those with whom he worked, he was the “Boss” but also a real friend. Mike was a builder, a real estate developer, and an investor whose genius created housing for his community and income for himself and for his business associates. Never ceasing to dream, his plan—with his wife’s unlimited and unconditional support—was to master the art of real estate acquisitions, finance, and development.
Mike was born on October 24, 1969 in Donaldsonville, GA, to Lillian Hartsfield Brown. At an early age, his mother taught him to love his Savior and to be devoted to God, which shaped his personal integrity, honor, and commitment to humanity and excellence.
Family life was very important to Mike. He married the one and only “love of his life,” Angela Clark, and to this union, one son was born, Michael Antonio Brown, Jr. The strength of his devotion to his wife and to his son was unmatched! Mike always said, “I hope you can draw endless energy from knowing that wherever you are, whatever you are going through, there will always be someone you can count on: That someone is me!”
Mike leaves to cherish his memories his mother, his wife, his son, and his sister, Deatrice Brown. The void of his loss will also be felt by other devoted family members: his mother-in-law, Carolyn Walker; sisters-in-law, Stephanie (Kelcey) Davis, Trenee (Aaron) Fannin, Rikina Lane, and Aris Lane; brothers-in-law, Cedric Lane, Carl Lane, Carlos (Jamilla) Lane, and Carlton (Quakita) Lane; a special cousin, Rodriquez Williams, and many loving relatives and friends.
Mike loved to travel, and he was the definition of a selfless, loving, handsome, always well-dressed, intelligent, independent, “in charge” and confident individual. His memory will forever reside in those who loved him dearly.
