James Michael Brown passed away July 15th, 2022 at the age of 53. Born and raised in south jersey, he was a gifted son, a proud eldest brother and a loving father. He truly wanted to offer the world to any and everyone he met. He was a musician, a carpenter, and later became a commercial fisherman. A jack of all trades, but oftentimes better than a master of one. He loved to talk and cared deeply for people. James was happiest in nature or on the sea. He had a mystical way with animals—especially wild ones—which often approached and befriended him. He is survived in death by his Father James F. Brown, Mother Barbra Brown, Brothers Travis and Ryan, Sisters Heather and Stephanie, and Son Brandon D. Brown. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visitation from 10:00am-11:30am followed by a memorial service on July 22nd, 2022 at Eugene J. Zale Funeral Home located at 712 N. White Horse Pike, Stratford NJ 08084.
