Biography: Timothy Clutz Brown, 74, Littlestown, passed away February 13 at home. His wife, Marcia, preceded him in death in May, 2021. They had been married for 44 years

The son of the late Wade H. and S. Elizabeth Brown, he was a 1967 graduate of Littlestown High School and a 1969 graduate of Williamsport Area Community College, now Penn State College of Technology, where he studied machine technology.

He is survived by his brother Ronald and his wife Glenda, Mount Wolf; his sister Sally Bair and her husband Alan, Lancaster; brother-in-law Richard Mummert, New Freedom; and sister-in- law Linda Becker, Gettysburg. He was predeceased by his brother Ed Brown and his wife Barbara, and sister Barbara Mummert. He has many surviving nieces and nephews.

Tim farmed with his father and then his bother Ed, with Brownvalley Holsteins, and eventually moved to a farm on Hickory Road where he and Marcia raised small fruits and Tend-R-Lean beef. Tim and Marcia were committed to learning and applying new farming techniques and sharing what they learned with others, hosting many open houses over the years – for dairy producers, fruit growers, school groups and others.

He joined 4-H when he was 11 and was grateful for the many opportunities he had through 4-H, traveling to Iowa, Maine and Tennessee on 4-H exchange trips, attending Camp Nawakwa and Citizenship Days in Harrisburg and Washington. In addition to raising sweet corn and strawberries, he enjoyed participating in 4-H Round-Up, showing his dairy cows. He continued contributing to 4-H as a leader of the Dairy Club and coach of the 4-H dairy judging team, one of which placed second in the state.

Passionate about preserving Adams County’s rich farmland, he was a founding member of the Adams County Farmland Preservation Board, and served for 30 years as a member.

He served as state president of the Pennsylvania Young Farmers and was on Southern States Board of directors for six years and Adams County DHIA for 20 years, also serving on the state board for six years. He was a member of Kingsdale Fire Company, the Pennsylvania Holstein Association and Atlantic Dairy Cooperative, served on Adams Electric Advisory Committee, Littlestown FFA Advisory Board, Farm Service Agency County Board and South Mountain Fair Board.

He was recognized many times for his outstanding community service, including the Local Hero Award from the American Farmland Trust and the Pennsylvania Farmland Preservation Association, Country Folks Farmer of the Year Award, and was named an Outstanding Young Farmer over 30 by Pennsylvania Young Farmers Association.  He also received the Community Service Award from PYFA.

He was a member of St. Mary’s United Church of Christ, Silver, Run, Maryland where he served as a deacon for three years.

To the Brown family.

Sorry for your loss but know he is at peace and with Marcia looking down on all of you.

He was a character and always had a funny comment or joke. He was always pleasant to work with at the Farm Service Agency. He cared about farming and took pride in what he did always trying to improve things to benefit all. Great advocate for agriculture.

Always there to volunteer at activities around the county.

Take care.
Judy and Jean Behney
