Obituary for Mervin Glen Brown

Mervin Glen Brown was born March 1, 1936, in Nivina, OK, to Mervin and Ethel (McKee) Brown. The family moved from their farm in Oklahoma to the Stockton, CA, area during World War II. Glen married Norma Roth of Denver, CO, in August 1956. To this union was born Michael, Laura, Thomas, and Nancy. Glen served in the United States Air Force from 1955-1964. From 1964-1973 he worked at the Sharps Army Depot in Manteca, CA. Glen proudly earned his GED in 1972. In 1973, Glen and Norma moved to Curtis, NE, and they owned and operated Glen’s Appliance Store. He returned to California in 1975 and continued to repair appliances.

He married Geneva Albritton of Stockton, CA, in April 1977. They settled in Valley Springs, CA, near Geneva’s sons Mark and John in 1984. Glen worked at OG Packing in Stockton, CA, from 1977-1987. Following his “retirement” Glen worked at West Winds in Lodi, CA. He retired for good in 1997. Glen and Geneva lived in Valley Springs until 2019. They belong to Foothill EV Lutheran Church (LCMS) of Valley Springs.

Glen deeply loved his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He was a devoted family man and traveled to visit his family in Oklahoma, Colorado, and Nebraska regularly. Glen’s other passion was fishing and they lived near Lake Comanche so he could fish whenever time was available. He is remembered largely for his kindness and willingness to take others fishing. Glen proudly drove his Model A with Geneva and the Angel’s Camp Model A Club all over Northern California. He and Geneva also enjoyed pouring his time into his church, serving with his handyman skills in many regards.
