Shay Jeremy Brown

December 15, 1991 — January 4, 2023

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present
with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8 (KJV)
Shay Jeremy Brown, 31, of Marion, OH, transitioned from this earthly life on Wednesday,
January 4, 2023, at Marion General Hospital.
Shay was born December 15, 1991, in Akron, Ohio, a son of the late Cornelius (Lil’ Neil) Brown,
Jr. and Bridgette Springfield. Shay was also a former member of Greater Mt. Zion Church of God
in Christ. He earned his GED in 2021.
But our commonwealth is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who
will change our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power which enables him even to
subject all things to himself. Philippians 3:20-21 (KJV)
Shay had several labor jobs over the years including BRT Extrusions, Inc, in Niles. Shay loved his
family, football, basketball, music, rapping and creating lyrics, and having fun. Shay had a great
sense of humor and an infectious laugh that enveloped all those around him. Shay was always
direct and to the point and one of his favorite sayings was “flat-out”. His warm personality will
be missed by all those around him.

matrimony on April 22, 2022. To that union was born a beautiful baby girl, Lilly Leigh Brown,
