Gary William Brown 51, of Westland passed away at Garden City Hospital on April 12, 2021 after a brief illness. Gary was born on September 22, 1969 to James and Nancy (née McCollum) Brown and was a lifelong resident of Michigan (GO TIGERS).
Gary leaves behind his wife Elicca, step-mother Gladys Powers, brother Phil (Lori) Brown as well as nieces Jennifer, Jessica and Jaime and great-nieces and nephews Cameron, Eva, Lily, Calvin and Prudence. Gary was preceded in death by his mother, father and brother Ed.
As a fierce competitor, Gary loved playing cards as well as belonging to bowling and pool leagues. Gary’s passion for baseball is evident by his enormous baseball card collection. Gary’s gentle demeanor and kind heart made his quick-witted, soft-spoken sarcasm just another thing to love about him.
