**UPDATE** Deadly Single-Car Crash Takes Life of Dade County Resident


A single-car accident has left Dade County without one of its finer residents. Bobby Brown, husband of Ann Brown and long-time member of the community passed away. Brown was driving a van down back valley road at the foot of sand mountain carrying several animal companions for the Tri-State Humane Society, the foundation his wife manages, when his vehicle left the road and struck a tree.

Information on the funeral has yet to be made public.

Mr. Brown’s Obituary can be found below:

Bobby Wayne Brown, 72, of Trenton passed away Monday, August 8, 2022. He was born May 6, 1950 to the late Jack and Mattie Brown.
