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.

I would like to take the time to thank everyone who loved and cared about my Uncle Paul. Due to family disagreements and wrongdoings, I am ending the campaign early! We did raise enough money to have the funeral service but still need money for his burial or cremation (whatever my grandmother wants to do- leave Champ out of it).

I'm letting the rest of the family continue fundraising the way they see fit. The funeral is fully paid for thanks to you all!!

If you guys want to keep track on me and the Scraper Bike Team, follow us on social media or check out our website at www.scraperbiketeam.org

Thanks again, and my Uncle Paul would deeply appreciate you guys love and support. Thank you!
