CHRISMAN - Scott Russell Brown of Chrisman, and formerly of Metcalf, went home to dance and sing in the Lord’s choir Wednesday, March 25, 2020. He was home surrounded by his family.

Mr. Brown 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, Okla., and another favorite sister of his Alisha (Will) Porter of Chrisman, all say he is their favorite brother.

Later on in 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 his 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

Mr. Brown 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. He loved all of his brothers and sisters in Christ and always lit up a room if he knew Pastor Pearman was coming.

While spending winters in New River, Ariz., 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 Pentecostal Evangel. He 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 Management in Maricopa County, Arizona. He had various hobbies and interests including 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.  He 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. 

Memorial donations may be made to the Sidell Assembly Youth Group or Camp New Hope.
