Carl Frank Brown, 75, of Benton, passed away on Friday, April 16, 2021, at Marshall County Hospital.

Frank was born on September 1, 1945, to the late John Edward Brown and Della Mae Cody Brown Lawson. Frank worked as a mechanic for Parkway Chrysler in Benton for over 20 years. He loved to spend his time building and working on dune buggies at his shop and spending time with all of his friends. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and was a huge animal lover. He was known for taking in any of the stray cats that happened to come on his property and would always provide a home for them no matter how many he already had. Frank was a kind and caring person who always knew how to have a good time and loved being a jokester. His family and friends will always remember the countless hours that they spent alongside him while he tinkered with his vehicles and enjoy all of the memories they shared while driving around

with him.

He is survived by two sisters, Betty Maples of Maryville, Tennessee and Patricia D. “Pat” Lynn of Knoxville, Tennessee; one brother, Jimmy Ray Brown of Knoxville, Tennessee; his best friend, Daniel Lovett of Benton; several extended family members; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his longtime companion of over 30 years, Delores Lovett; two brothers, Sam Edward “J.R.” Brown and Charles Eugene “Charlie” Lawson; and his parents.
