Mr. Donald Jack Brown, 66, of Hartwell, husband of Brenda Brown, passed away on Friday, July 29, 2023.

Born in Atlanta on November 12, 1956, he was a 1974 graduate of Elbert County High School and a member of Harmony Baptist Church. Donald was retired from Henry & Henry Trucking Company after spending decades in the transportation industry. He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anybody. Donald's outgoing personality was as big as his heart, and he was always the life of the party everywhere he went. His humor and quick wit made it impossible not to enjoy being with him.

He is preceded in death by his father, Jack Brown; son, Scott Brown; and special brother-in-law, Jimmy Linker.
