NATHANIEL BERKLEY BROWN, fondly known as “Stinky” or “Nate,” was born March 14, 1958 to the late Isaac and Mabel O. Brown of Aberdeen, Maryland. He took his rest from this life on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at Seasons Hospice Care in Essex, Maryland.

Nathaniel attended Harford County Public Schools and graduated from Aberdeen High School in 1976. After graduation, his mother gave him three options: get a job, go to college, or join the military. With encouragement from his brother-in-law, he chose the latter and joined the United States Army. There he served for eleven years and was honorably discharged.

Nathaniel was an easy-going, likeable guy with a sense of humor. He had a big smile and heart to match. It was no secret that he also had a heart for cars. He was employed in various positions, but to his family and his buddies that he grew up with in Washington Park, “Stinky” was known as a talented, affordable, and easy to find mechanic. Whether it was after work on a weekday or at any given hour on the weekends, he could be found “fixing up cars.”

Nathaniel worked hard and later traded in those various day jobs for passion. He took a job as a full-time mechanic at Auto Mart in Perryman, Maryland. He also became a painter and salesman. “Nate” was like family to the owner and served the people in his community until his health no longer permitted. At home, his loving companion was by his side and he was encouraged and supported by all those he served well.

Nathaniel had to take it easy and gave up working on all those cars. He agreed to going to see the doctor which was sometimes hard. He started going to church to make right of all of his wrongs. Then he submitted to riding in that sweet chariot the Savior sent “ALL FIXED UP” just to carry him home!

Nathaniel leaves to cherish his memory; one son, Nathaniel Brown, Jr., Perryville, MD; three sisters, Laura Spears, Aberdeen, MD, Constance Ringgold, Aberdeen, MD, Jo Ann Croxsell (Marvin) Aberdeen, MD; one brother Antonio Brown (Kelly) Belcamp, MD; 20 nieces and nephews; 19 great nieces and nephews; 4 great great nieces and nephews; his loving companion, Velvet McCoy, Aberdeen, MD; and a host of cousins, other relatives, loved ones, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents Isaac and Mabel O. Brown, two sisters Ruby and Anna Marie, and four brothers Leroy, Charles, Jackie, and Harold.
