It is with great sorrow that we announce Clarence Lazard Brown III, age 49, a beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, left this world unexpectedly on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at Ochsner Hospital Main Campus. Clarence was born in New Orleans, La. on August 16, 1970 to Evelyn and Clarence Brown Jr. For most of his life he has been a resident Jefferson parish. He graduated from John Ehret High School and developed an extensive career in truck driving and security work. However, his heart was made for the arts. Clarence was a talented musician. Self-taught from a young age, he mastered and was well known for his talent on the piano/keyboard and bass guitar. He was welcomed and loved by the New Orleans music community where he spent most of his time perfecting his gifts and admiring the talents of many others. He was also a self-taught artist well known for his creative drawings, photography and airbrush talents. He was not selfish with his gifts. He kept a desire and was successful in passing on his knowledge in the arts to many, especially his niece and nephew. Clarence was well known for his love for family, his huge smile, quirky ways and the loudest laugh in the room. Not to mention his sense of fashion would’ve allowed him to out run any runway.
To carry on his love and legacy, Clarence leaves his parents Evelyn A. Brown and Clarence Brown Jr., his sister Candice (Herman) Garrison, nephew Marlon B. (Averee) Green and niece Jasmine G. Garrison. He also leaves a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and a family of devoted friends and coworkers. He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents Grandville Alexander Sr. and Eva Green, and his paternal grandparents Clarence L. Brown Sr. and and Mildred Brooks.
