He also passed his love of the game on to those survived by him: Wife, Diane (Johnson) Brown; Daughters Maureen (Brandon) Koch, Rebecca (Ryan) Dreger; Grandson Miles Ryan Dreger and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.Family and friends received Thursday, January 24, 2019 from 12:00-4:00pm followed by a 4:00pm Blessing Service both at Pittsburgh Cremation and Funeral Care 5405 Steubenville Pike Robinson Township, PA 15136.

Tom Brown you will always live in my heart! Everytime I step onto a ball field I will think of the many wonderful times I had there with you. I will fondly remember the wonderful childhood memories being in your home, summers driving to games in your truck, and many sleepovers with little sleep! You are so greatly missed! Diane, Maureen, and Becca, I'm so so sorry for this loss. Know that you are all loved!

I go back a little further--------I'm officially old. Yet I remember Tom. Fer crissakes how does one not? He had the sweet swing & the fluid motion on the ball field. And the pretty arc-----the tight spiral-----when he hurled the pigskin. Behind Mellon School there was a magical place. We simply labeled it "The Field". Legends grew there. With names long gone. "Bugsy", "Mr Chips", "Eagle", "Sabs," & "Stormin Norman"------hmm, "Trickey Ricky"? Tom Brown? Now that's a name. Easy to remember. Hard to forget. Can we ever play catch again? Paul Morrison

To the Browns, What a blessing to have such an amazing man in your lives for the time you had him. I didn't know him for a long time, but he welcomed me and others into his home immediately and treated us all like family. I feel blessed to have spent any time with him. He was a great role model to me of what a good father and husband looks like. I will keep him in my thoughts and memories
