Obituary

      In humble submission to the will of God, we pause today to honor the LIFE and LEGACY of a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend.

      Mallory Elmo Brown was born on Friday, December 17, 1943 in Roanoke Rapids (Halifax County), North Carolina to the late Otis Elmo Brown and Mamie Louise Parker Brown.

       Elmo, as he was affectionately called by his loving family and friends, in his early years, attended the public schools of Northampton County, North Carolina. He later relocated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he attended Benjamin Franklin High School, graduating with the class of 1961. In 1965 Elmo was drafted into the United States Army, serving his country for two years, before being Honorably Discharged. For more than thirty years, Elmo was employed by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), where he worked as a bus driver and rail service station attendant for 35 years, retiring in January 2004.

       As life progressed, Elmo met Johnnie Mae Loney and the two were married in July of 1995. He was a father-at-heart to her children, and being a grandfather brought him great joy. In 2004 Elmo and Johnnie Mae left the fast-paced city of Philadelphia, settling in the rural town of Seaboard, to live out their retirement years. He loved staying home, watching the cows, viewing photos of the children on the computer with Johnnie and of course listening to Johnnie fuss at him. Thee two became faithful members of the Faithful Band Baptist Church, where Elmo was ordained as a Deacon.

      He’s in the sun, the wind, the rain, he’s in the air you breathe with every breath you take. He sings a song of hope and cheer, there’s no more pain, no more fear. You’ll see him in the clouds above, hear him whisper words of love, you’ll be together before long, until then listen for his song. On Friday, May 13, 2022; while in the care of Wake Medical Center, Raleigh, North Carolina, our dear loved one was called home from earthly labor unto eternal rest.

       Though his light may eternally descend, this God is our God and He has promised to be our guide until the very end. Though the pain may be almost too much to bear, God is love and He will walk with us in our deepest despair. We who remain struck by the bitter pains of death, but satisfied at the promises of God; that He will wipe away all tears from our eyes: his lovely wife, Johnnie Mae Brown of the home; three children-at-heart, Kim Guyton (Harold) of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Wallace Loney, III (Sonaie) of Aurora, Illinois and Sidney T. Loney, Sr. (Tawanda) of Clinton, Maryland; fifteen grandchildren-at-heart, Latoya Thomas, Idris Guyton (Melissa), Quinnzel Robinson, Jr. (Yesenia), Zaiyair Guyton, Kadarr Guyton (Heather), Devon Jackson, Sidney T. Loney, Jr., Chivon Dugan (Matthew), Ni’Mat Guyton, Taahira Guyton, Aaron Loney (Michelle), Nasheed Coleman (Sadat), Tarajee Beyah, Muzakir Beyah and Clarence Johnson; twenty six great-grandchildren-at-heart, Nolan Jr., Mason Turner, Ethan, Benji, Mason Thomas, Harmony, Adleigh, Savannah, Luka, Sideeq, Sabree, Kebra, Jerry, Shelynn, Fatimah, Omar, Aidan, Ilyas, Sajjad, Munir, Zamayah, Zawaad, Zoey, Cason, Lennox, Alexus and Clarence Jr.; two sisters, Peggy Gaskins (William) of Baltimore, Maryland and Geraldine Harrison of Scottsdale, Arizona; three nephews; four nieces; a host of loving relatives and friends.
