George M. Brown, 72, Knightstown, passed away Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at his residence. He was born on September 22, 1949 in Shelbyville, son of Wilbur and Anna (Tribby) Brown.

George was known as a very funny man and a jokester; he had a mind for anything or any situation. Under all the humor, George was a family man that loved his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Spending time with family was a top priority for George; he longed for the family to celebrate holidays and special occasions. A car salesman most of his working career, George was also a disc jockey, specifically at the Holiday Inn on the east side of Indianapolis; he made a multitude of friends over the years. He enjoyed watching all sports.
