Obituary for Scott R. "Scotty" Brown
Scott Russell Brown of Chrisman, formerly of Metcalf, went home to dance and sing in the Lord’s choir on Wednesday, March 25 2020. He was home surrounded by his family. Scotty is the son of Mike and Lynda (Brown) Carroll of Chrisman.They were blessed to receive this special gift from God and have him for 48 years. Growing up, he knew how to deal with his three younger sisters and stood his ground. His favorite sister Jammi (Rick) Asbury of Metcalf, his other favorite sister Trisha Wilson of Midwest City, Oklahoma, and another favorite sister of his Alisha (Will) Porter of Chrisman, they all say that he is their favorite brother! Later on in Scotty’s life, he acquired three more siblings: Chad (Angie) Carroll of Mattoon, Laura (Jack) Bruingten of Mattoon. Scott Brown was also preceded in death by another brother, Brian (Nicole Colvin of Niantic) Carroll. Uncle Scotty loves Alex (Karsyn Worthington) Asbury of Metcalf, Jesse Asbury of Metcalf, Clara Wheeler and Jeremy Porter of Chrisman, Josh and Ian Carroll of Niantic, and Elizabeth Carroll of Mattoon. There are a lot of people who were a big part of Scotty’s life: Including his Aunt Debra (Chuck) Gore of Chrisman, with Chris, Kelly, Dennis, and Ashley, Aunt Sandra Bayes of Fairmount, with daughters: Maria, Lauralee, and Amanda, Aunt Norma Yelenick and families, Aunt Bernie Peppas and families, and his uncle and aunt: Joe (Bernadine) Carroll of Brocton with Carla, Amy, and Tony, as well as many other family members from Georgetown and Champaign. Scotty had a strong faith in his Lord, Jesus. He was a member of Sidell Assembly UPC in Sidell. He enjoyed singing in the choir, wearing his red and black robe, and praising Jesus. Scotty loved all of his brothers and sisters in Christ and always lit up a room if he knew Pearman (Pastor) was coming. While spending his winters in New River, Arizona, he attended New River First Assembly of God, where he played drums for Sunday morning praise and worship service, greeted members at the door, and handed out The Weekly Penocostle Evangel. Scotty attended Paris High School and graduated from Armstrong Center High School in Mattoon in 1993. He then went on to work at HRC in Paris. In the winters, he volunteered, alongside his parents, for the Bureau of Land Managements in Maricopa County, Arizona. Scotty had various hobbies and interests. This included: bicycling, karate, music, riding the Harley with mom or dad, swimming, boating, and going to Camp New Hope. He loved Coke, Peanut Butter Cups, and pencils. Scotty was a source of joy and entertainment his whole life for anyone who met him. He never forgot anyone he met, and we can guarantee they didn’t forget him either. Everybody has a story about Scotty. He never realized he had a disability, that was only in the eyes of the world. Graveside services will be held Monday, March 30, 2020 at 2 p.m. at the Young America Cemetery in Hume, Il. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Sidell Assembly Youth Group or Camp New Hope.
