Cabell Cole Brown IV, a former law enforcement officer died on Friday, Aug. 30. He was 47.
He was born on May 26, 1972, to Cabell Cole Brown III and Sherrill Dorothea Brown.
Growing up, his friends and family often called him “Chip.”
Brown attended Lankenau Motivation High School in Roxborough, and continued his education by attending Tri-City Barber School, where he pursued a trade as a barber.
Brown fulfilled his dream of becoming a law enforcement officer when he got hired by the Delaware State Department of Corrections. After he was employed there for 13 years, his declining health forced him to leave on disability.
Brown always dreamed of one day having a daughter. He even started the process of picking her name while he was in high school. That dream turned into reality when Bria Chanelle Brown was born on Dec. 7, 1995. Brown and his daughter remained extremely close until the day of his passing.
The family remembers Brown’s love of laughter, big heart, loyalty to his close friends, and love of his family and daughter.
He was preceded in death by his father, Cabell Cole Brown III.
In addition to his mother and daughter, he is survived by: brother David Sean, sister-in-law Toni Maria, and nephew Tony Desean Brown, along with a host of aunts, uncles and cousins, and extended friends and family.
Services were held on Sept. 7 at Emanuel Johnson Funeral Home.
