Such sad news about a man who cared for his family so much.
Louis Brown Jr., the father of O.J. Simpson’s ex wife Nicole Brown Simpson, has sadly passed away at the age of 90.
Brown had been battling Alzheimer’s disease, according to his daughter Denise Brown, and he succumbed last Thursday, at 3:40am at his home in Dana Point. She gave a statement, which said:
"My dad was a class act and a gentleman who was always there for us – and for Nicole. He was a great dad. We are all devastated that he is gone. My dad had had Alzheimer's for a while. When his condition took a turn for the worse last Wednesday, my mom called me and said to come home. I flew home from Italy as soon as she called. I got there at 6 p.m., and he passed away not even 12 hours later. My mom said he knew I was there. She said, 'He waited for you to come home.' He was at peace."
His other daughter Tanya added:
"I'm so blessed to have been able to take care of him at home. I think he hung on for so long because he knew there was so much love in the house. I am the youngest and was always daddy's little girl. He was always my daddy first and became my friend later in life. He was always there for me. I could always lean on him. We all could. He was such an honorable man."
Louis is survived by six children from his two marriages, two grandchildren from Nicole, and his wife Juditha. The family is planning a military burial, since Mr. Brown was a B-17 bomber Army Air Force Captain in World War II!
Even until weeks ago, Brown maintained that O.J. murdered Nicole, and kept her memory alive through the Nicole Brown Simpson Charitable Foundation, which helps victims of domestic abuse.
Our thoughts are with their family and friends at this time.
