(Washington, DC) – Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement upon the passing of Earl F. Brown, the former Deputy District Director for South Carolina's Second Congressional District.  Earl worked in the Midlands Office for eleven years representing Congressman Wilson throughout the community.

"I was advised this morning by Attorney General Alan Wilson of the passing last night of Earl F. Brown, the former Deputy Director of the Second Congressional District. This is a time to recognize an appreciated Patriot of our State. From his Army service, his Columbia Rotary Club dedication, to rising to being Director of the Human Affairs Commission to the Congressional Office, Earl was driven by his love of people. His loss is personal to the Wilson Family where four generations have affectionately identified him as 'Uncle Earl', a tradition that started with the births of our four grandchildren at Lexington Medical Center as Earl was always the first visitor bringing flowers. Our sympathy to his daughter Kim, son Felton, and his beloved church family at Brookland Baptist Church," Congressman Wilson stated.
