David Todd Brown

January 26, 1968 ~ March 8, 2023 (age 55) 55 Years Old


David Todd Brown, 55, of Fletcher, North Carolina passed away peacefully on March 8, 2023, surrounded by his family, who he held dearest, after a hard-fought battle with idiopathic thrombocytopenia and went to be in the arms of Jesus. 

David was born in Kenansville, NC on January 26, 1968, to Billy and Retha Brown and grew up in Rose Hill, NC. David had an amazing work ethic. He bought his first car with the hard-earned money he saved from mowing lawns.

David worked for many years at the family business, Browns builder supply, and then the cabinet in Wilmington. In 1997, he met who would soon become a lifelong partner, Karen (Grucci) Brown and in 1999 they married and had 24 happy years together. In 2009, when he and his family moved to Fletcher, he continued his work in the building supply business.

David loved to fish, travel, spend time with his family, take care of his beautiful yard, and play with his loyal dog Reece. 

David leaves behind his loving wife Karen, his son Connor (21) and daughter Jillian (15), his father Billy Brown, his sister Debbie and her husband Kevin Williams, nephew Everett

 Williams (Candace), niece Hailey Watkins (Justin) and niece Haven Williams.

David was predeceased by his mother Retha Brown, his sister Cheryl Brown and his stepmother Betty Brown.

Funeral services will be handled by Padgett Funeral Home in Wallace. Viewing will take place 6-8 on Tuesday March 14. Wednesday March 15 there will be an 11 am service followed by a graveside service at Riverview Memorial Park cemetery.
