Tall Paul Brown, 08.13.1955 - 05.26.2018
We were all stunned when we found out in January of this year that our Uncle Paul was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer which had traveled to his brain.
We are reaching out to those who knew and loved our uncle, Tall Paul, to ask for donations as we prepare for his funeral service and burial. We would greatly appreciate all the love and support of the community that Uncle Paul loved so much!
Tall Paul was a man of many skills and talents, and his life should be celebrated. He is most famous for his double-stacked, pimped out bike. He had very little in the way of material possessions, but he had the biggest heart and a mind full of wisdom. Kids knew that if they brought Tall Paul a report card with 3 A's and a B, he would make them their own pimped out bike.
Uncle Paul always had a dream to open his own bike shop, a place that offered education, mentorship, mechanical workshops and more! Without men like Uncle Paul, young kings such as Baybe Champ the Scraper Bike King would have fallen victim to the streets or the prison pipeline.
His legacy will live on forever!
With a heavy heart, we thank you all in advance for whatever you can give. We deeply appreciate your love and support.
. . . and so would Tall Paul.
