Brown Sr. and Anna Lee Ensor Brown. He was known as Charlie by some and Tommy by others. Tommy was a member of Blessed Mother Church but was formerly a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Church where he served as a hospitality minister and one of God's housekeepers.

Charlie graduated from Owensboro Catholic High in 1966 and received a scholarship to Kentucky Wesleyan College where he played baseball for two years. He joined the Owensboro Police Department and retired after 20 years as a Lieutenant. He was then employed at Glenmore Distillery for 22 years as a Production Supervisor being well respected by his co-workers. He was known as one of the old school "good ole boys" that always got the job done in a professional and respectful manner. Charlie was a Kentucky Colonel, member of Knights of Columbus, the F.O.P. and a New York Yankee fan whose favorite player was Mickey Mantle whose hand he was able to shake. He was also of the rare breed of being both a Louisville Cardinal and a Kentucky Wildcat fan.
