Here is what the person who nominated Mr. Brown had to say about him:

“Tim grew up the” Son of a Funeral Man” so serving and loving his community was instilled in him at a very young age. Tim graduated from Mission High School in 1995 and went straight to the Dallas Institute of Mortuary Science. He then came back to Mission to be with the community he loved and wanted to spend the rest of his life serving. In 1999 the family opened the Ric Brown Family Funeral Home. The Browns now have four locations to serve Valley families in their time of need. Tim known to many as the “Last Responder” has been helping and serving families in need every day and night since. 

When the world was hit with the COVID-19 pandemic, Tim determined no amount of fear would stop him from serving the hurting in the community. When FEMA arrived with refrigerated trailers, many municipalities refused to accept the responsibility, Tim took the responsibility and became an area-wide resource for all local funeral homes to alleviate the overcrowding issues they were facing, in addition, he helped manage a FEMA warehouse in Weslaco that received hundreds of COVID deaths and were awaiting processing.”
