Mr. Alphonso Brown was born December 31, 1963 in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Albert and Frannie Maude Brown. He went home to be with his heavenly father on Thursday, November 28, 2019.

Alphonso was introduced to Christ as a child at Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Jackson in Chicago, Illinois. He grew a more personal relationship with God as he got older and later became a member at Mt. Moriah Baptist Church in Saginaw, Michigan.

Alphonso graduated from Wendell Phillips Academy High School in Chicago. He worked at the Chicago Public Library for a while. He enjoyed playing cards, eating, laughing, joking and talking trash. Without a doubt, Alphonso will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
