How Did Johny Brown Die?

His daughter, actress Sharon Catherine Brown, posted the news of her father’s death on her Instagram account on Friday, March 4, 2022.

Her statement made no reference to the circumstances surrounding Johnny Brown’s death. She expressed herself as follows:

Our family is devastated. Devastated. Devastated. Beyond heartbroken. Barely able to breathe. We respectfully ask for privacy at this time because we need a minute to process the unthinkable. To articulate the depths of profound sadness.

This is my mom’s husband for sixty one years, mine and JJ’s dad, Elijah and Levi’s Pop Pop, older brother to George and brother in law to Pat and extended family to Chris, Hihat, Damian and Derell.

It’s too terrible. It will never not be. It’s a shock. He was literally snatched out of our lives. It’s not real for us yet. So there will be more to say but not now. Dad was the absolute best. We love him so very much.
