Scott A. Brown “Downtown Scotty Brown”, 51 of Robinson Township, suddenly passed away on Monday, April 10, 2023, in Sewickley Hospital.
Scotty was born on August 28, 1971, in Oakdale, son of Charles J. (Joyce) Brown and the late Frances P. Spychalski Brown.
In his earlier years, Scotty was a former Oakdale Volunteer Fireman. He worked for Charlie Brown’s Airport Parking, where he was the manager for many years. He was extremely proud of his family business and he was dedicated to not only his customers, but employees as well. Scotty knew each and everyone of his customers by name, their families, and what cars they owned. He loved catching up with all his customers and hearing about their travels, and life since he last seen them.
When Scotty was not wrapped up in work, his weekends were never relaxing. If he didn’t have the hose & tire shine out making sure his truck was shiny and sparkly – he was spending all his free time with Sandy & his dog Henry. When it came to Henry, he enjoyed taking him for truck rides and giving this little guy all the attention. Scotty and Sandy spent the last 25 years together and every day was filled with a new adventure. They created a life both of them always dreamed of. Not every day was perfect, but it was perfect for them. Family was always important to both of them, but their Grandchildren meant the
world. Scotty was the most devoted STP (Grandfather). He had the honor of walking his oldest #1 granddaughter down the aisle and giving her away in marriage to her best friend, Chris.
Scotty & Sandy loved traveling – Aruba was their second home. In addition to family & traveling, Scotty had a passion for golfing. Many years ago, he would spend his weekdays golfing with his Oakdale buddies.
Scotty had a spunky personality that was full of life. Fitting his personality, he loved shooting off fireworks for his family and friends. He was the most genuine and caring person that you would ever meet. He treated everyone as if they were family and welcomed every stranger through the door. There is so much that will be missed about Scotty, but the world is truly a better place for having Scotty in it.
Surviving is his wife/significant other Sandra Esposito, siblings, Craig Brown, Eric (Amy) Brown and Kim (Jon) Fadzen, Kathleen (Paul) Pennington. Grandchildren, Brianne (Chris) Hopper, Joey (Becca) Prince, Christian Esposito, Jacob Prince and Victoria and Luke Pennington. Great grandchildren, Ava, Christopher, Emma Hopper and Liam Prince. Niece, Abby and Nephew, Alex Brown, along with several other niece and nephews, aunts and uncles. He was very close to friends he considered family, that also called him Pappy Scotty.
