Harrison Irwin Brown
Harrison Irwin Brown passed away on May 1, 2017 in Austin, on the campus of The University of Texas. He was 19.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 6, at 1 p.m. at the Graham High School Basketball Gym, officiated by the Rev. Msgr. Raymund Mullan of Mansfield, formerly of Graham and assisted by the Rev. Eugene Nyong of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Graham.
Born on Sept. 17, 1997 in Wichita Falls, to Kurt and Lori Brown, he who for a little more than 19 years lived and labored among us is gone. The hand that had handed out so much to others is stilled; and the voice that meant hope and encouragement to so many is hushed.
Harrison grew up in Graham and graduated from Graham High School in 2016. He was a freshman at The University of Texas at Austin and was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Graham and the University Catholic Center in Austin. Harrison loved God, his family, friends, music and The University of Texas.
God in His infinite wisdom has seen fit to remove from the walks of men this noble and gentle soul, but the works of Harrison Brown will live on for many generations yet to come.
Harrison is survived by his parents, Kurt and Lori Brown of Graham, by his brother, John Brown and sister-in-law Allie, of San Antonio, and by his beloved nephew and godson, William Kurt Brown.
He is also survived by his grandparents, Diane Brown of San Antonio, Dick and Deanna Irwin of Greer, S.C., formerly of New Braunfels, and by many uncles, aunts and cousins and many friends across the globe.
Harrison was preceded in death by his grandfather, William D. Brown, by his great-grandparents, Lillie Brown and Peter and Anna D’arcangelis, and by his cousin, Michael Brown.
