Rob Brown, 50, of Appomattox, entered peacefully into eternal rest on Monday, May 9, 2016 at his home. Born February 9, 1966 in Richmond, he was the son of Don Brown and Shirley Jones.

Following high school, he started his own construction business, which led him to a fulfilled life doing what he not only was good at, but what he loved as well. Rob built houses locally for many years, and became very well known in the community for his work. Just recently, him and his crewmen remodeled Appomattox Christian Academy.

He had a heart of gold, and loved his family more than any words could possibly describe. Rob was the kind of man to give you the shirt off of his back, and not think twice about it. He would help anyone in any way he could. His witty, comical, and genuine personality will truly be missed by many.

Rob is survived by his loving wife, Leslie, of 19 years; his son, Johnny Ray Brown and wife, Ashley of Farmville; two daughters, Lacey Brown Cooke and husband, Chris of Cartersville, and Kasey Brown and significant other, Zackary Hogan of Rocky Mount; two grandsons, Bryson Cooke and Connor Hogan; mother, Shirley Jones; sister, Kim Davis; two nephews, Scott Noblin and family, and Kevin Noblin and family; aunt, Louise Bircham; uncle, Brad Bircham; uncle, Junior Burcham; sister-in-law, Vicki Hughes and husband, Richard; two nieces, Carlie Hughes and Kayla Hughes. Also his friends that were family, David Jones and wife, Sonya, Robert Ball and wife, Amber, Bruce Boone and wife, Meredith. He was proceeded in death by his father, Don Brown, uncle, Roger Bircham and uncle, Sonny Bircham.

The family would like to give thanks for all of the support and prayers during the past few months. Thank you for all of the calls, visits, and most importantly the continuous love. Thank you to all of the nurses and doctors at Lynchburg General for your compassion and care, and thank you to the wonderful, supportive, and caring nurses with Centra Hospice.
