Clifford Anson Brown was born October 12, 1913, in Humboldt, the fourth child of Wesley and Cora (Hill) Brown. He grew up and attended school in the Orchard area, and worked as a farm hand. On April 23, 1932, he was united in marriage to Merna Ritter. Three children, Betty, Keith, and Garry were born to this union. Clifford lived and worked in the Mitchell and Floyd Counties all his life, working as a farm hand in his early years, then as a mechanic, carpenter and retiring as an electrician for Salsbury Laboratories. In his years after retirement he received great pleasure working with his hobby of repairing clocks. Clifford was a long time member of Bethany Alliance Church where in years past he served in many positions in the church. He loved eating his evening meal with his close friend Jean at the Back Door Restaurant where he was lovingly called "Wildman".

Living family members include his daughter, Betty (David) Holtz of Charles City; a son, Garry (Carol) Brown of Charles City; grandchildren, Deb and Bob Hocking, Laura and Jonathan Jones, Gina and Scott Phearman, Angie and Craig Sinnwell, Kelly and John Powell, Shawna and Kevin Davis; great grandchildren, Elizabeth, Allison, and Emily Hocking, Ellyn, Alex and Anna Phearman, Dalton and Jadyn Schutjer, Elliott Sinnwell, Brooke and Louis Powell, and Orion and Alexis Davis; close friend Jean Fisher; and life long friend and first cousin Howard Barrett.

His parents, wife, Merna in May of 1995, a son Keith in 1942, a son-in-law Dale Kinter in 1993, two sisters, Laura Gaines and Lola Bird, a brother Charles Brown, and his very special mother and father-in-law, Earl and Hortence Ritter preceded him in death.
