The family would like to thank Drs., Dan Moller, Randall Brewer, Robert Hernandez, David Cavanaugh, Scott McRight, and all others who worked together to keep Don as healthy as possible, most of whom were past medical students of Dr. Brown, at LSU Medical School-Shreveport. As educator for 33 years, he gave his body for research by future medical students, at LSU.
The family wishes to thank Life Path Hospice for the excellent care given to Don and Caddo Fire District One for all the help they gave. They also express their appreciation to the Trinity Heights Baptist Church Family, neighbors and friends that gave us so much.

The family suggest memorials be made in his honor to Think First, 960 Sheridan Ave, Shreveport, LA 71104, Gideon International, 8850 Chadwick Dr., Shreveport, LA 71129, or Trinity Heights Baptist Church.
Dr. Don taught many doctors in his career. They will continue his love of medicine.
