Louis Brown (affectionately known as “Junior” by his family and friends) was born March 4, 1948 in Alexandria, Louisiana to Alfre and William Johnson. He was the fourth of sixth children born to this union. Louis developed his faith in God very early. He gave his life to Christ as a young child at Antioch Baptist Church in Alexandria, Louisiana. He started his education at South Alexandria Elementary School and attended Peabody High School.
In 1970, Louis relocated from Louisiana to San Diego, California in search of something more for his life. He returned to school with a renewed energy and completed his GED that. He went to work at the 32nd Street Naval Base and UCSD Hospital. He retired after many years from the latter.
In 2002, Louis met and married the love of his life Linda Calloway. They remained together until the time Linda passed away in 2015. Louis was also a devoted Deacon who served faithfully at Choice Harvest Baptist Church. Above all else, Louis was a man who loved the Lord, loved his family, and helped his for his friends whenever there was a need.
