Isaac Adam Brown, age 24, the precious son of Tobin Brown and Faith Brown-Schultz, passed away October 24, 2021 in Everett, MA. He was preceded in death by his loving grandfathers Walter P. Katherman, Allan P. Brown, and Charles H. Schultz, as well as his great-grandparents.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his brother Simon B. Brown and Simon’s wife Anna, and by his step-father and friend David C. Schultz; his grandmother Judy Simpson, his grandmother Lorraine and grandfather Greg Wilson, and his grandmother Joanna Schultz; his aunts and uncles Randall Brown and Meg Boscov, Stephanie Brown, Christopher Katherman, Dameon and Stefanie Katherman, Susan Goodwin, Jessica and Edward Glazier, Laura Wilson and Bradley Wilson, and Carl and Laura Landry; his cousins Logan and Alexander Katherman, Amanda and Matthew Goodwin, Jonah and Chloe Boscov-Brown, Adriana Relvas, and Brooke and Bridget Landry; his beloved friend Jamia Yard; and numerous other friends and loved ones.
Isaac was a dreamer, a sensitive, charismatic, and compassionate soul, who struggled with anxiety, ADHD, and drug addiction for many years. They took him from place to place, including Florida and Massachusetts, as well as the Marine Corps, in his search for respite from them, before they ultimately took his life.
He loved animals, fashion, music, weight lifting, playing sports, video games, and his family. He met and befriended many other lost souls in his travels, and made many connections. He was always interested in someone else’s story.
His beautiful dimpled smile was irresistible. He was very proud of being a behavioral health technician and working for Haven Health as the alumni coordinator. In that role, he worked tirelessly to help other addicts. He understood their fears and pain, and put his heart into trying to get them to a safe harbor.
He had aspirations of going to college and becoming a nurse or a physician’s assistant.
Isaac made mistakes in his short life, but in his heart he wanted so desperately to be loved and accepted, and for his loved ones to be proud of him.
We were and will always be very proud of his kind spirit, how he wore his heart on his sleeve, and that he never stopped trying to overcome his demons. He will be terribly missed.
