Brown was also a coach with the Charlotte Storm AAU program, which posted a brief memorial on the team’s website.
“Tony was a great freind and supporter of so many people,” the memorial stated in part. “Words cannot express our loss. We hope to continue his work and passion for people. Our prayers are with his family, dear wife Melody and sons Richard and Robert.”
Brown’s team at Community School of Davidson is scheduled to play at Bessemer City Tuesday at 7:15 p.m.
