Benefit Planned For Fallen Deputy's Family

A gospel concert planned for Saturday will benefit the family of Martin County Sheriff's Deputy Charlie Brown.

Brown died in the line of duty in December. He was killed in a shootout in Williamston with Jerry Pace, Jr. Pace also died in the gunfire exchange.

Brown is survived by his wife and two daughters.

The gospel concert is Saturday at the Martin County Auditorium on the campus of Williamston High School. The doors open at 6 p.m., and the concert begins at 7 p.m. There is no admission fee, but a love offering will be collected. Concessions will be on sale.

The Dixie Melody Boys and Curtis Hyler & Jubilation will be performing at the concert.

Anyone needing more information about the concert can call (252) 217-4543.

    Let's get the story straight now. The guy who have been faceless through this ordeal was not shooting at innocent people. According to his sister he was going to kill his father. So they(the police) got a call from the family about him(the faceless person) trying to kill his father. Alot of people are making this into a hero story. The only people that should be thanking the Brown's family is the Pace family or father. Don't get mad if these people come on a public forum and talk about how they feel about the situation. And I don't agree with WITN blocking comments about how people feel when they don't agree with the story. Well in some cases.

    I have read a few posts here that seem to indicate that the people that loved Charlie B,, should have done less for his family and done more for others,, My only comment is--ARE YOU CRAZY___ this man gave his life,, and I repeat,,his life for your sorry A---. There is nothing that we as a community,, or you as an Individual, can do to EVER replace what his family has lost,, So to you I say,, If you have the ba--- to run toward a man shooting at innocent people,, If you have the ba--- to put on that badge,, Then and Only Then do you have the right to speak as you did,, MY GUESS is that you dont have what it takes,,, To Cindy and the Girls,, God bless, I wish we could do more

    Like I posted before,it was not intended to offend anyone and if that was the case I apologize to you.It wasn't as much a comment as it was a question and this was brought to my attention.And please before you jump to any conclusions,don't assume that I have no idea as to anything going on, or how feelings on this matter are.

    How about letting the family decide for themselves what they want and need in such matters, and not commenting on a choice that personal?

    Charlie was a wonderful man and this benefit, as well as every benefit and memorial service has been wonderful.It is a true testiment to the type of man Charlie was for his friends and family to come together and help his family in any way possible.Charlie thought of others first and himself last, and I know that he would have been helping out in any way possible as well.He was a well respected man and made Martin County safer for my children, myself and everyone else.With all do respect, please noone take this the wrong way, but I was wondering if anyone thought maybe the memorial services held over and over again were preventing his family from healing? It is definately great that everyone wanted to memorialize Charlie and make sure he lived on in us forever and he will.But continuing to have memorials has seemed like a continuous funeral and hasn't given some of his family members the chance to begin to move forward.Please do not take offense,I don't mean to cause any hard feelings.

    OMG are you serious? I've read some tasteless posts in my time, but to sit there and type THIS trash is beyond. How much is enough? Go back to your corner! The responding parties are right - these people are just trying to help out as best they can so the family doesn't have to worry and struggle when their primary concern should be working through the loss & the grieving process that is inevitable. To the person who said they didn't give anything (and won't) but "1 benefit is enough"... who are you to pass that judgement if you're not even supporting??? I to would much rather see this being done than sending money to other countries.

    Im just about sick and tired of "childish" ADULTS! You can always tell the childish ones cause they have to hide their names and talk their little the time spent typing your idiotic thoughts on here...perhaps you could have been planning youre little "ideal" benefit! We are doing what we felt was right as a part of "brotherhood, christianity, etc!" If you have a problem with something that has taken place or will take place be an adult keep your useless opinion to yourself! Ive known Charlie for years and he would have done this even for you Childish adults if it was you in need...thats the type of man he was...Thanks to all the fine citizens of Martin and surrounding counties for youre amazing out pouring of support for anything related to the Charlie Brown have and will continue to be a blessing to his family!!! And we look forward to having a awesome night of music at the Martin Co Auditorium tomorrow nite!! PLEASE COME SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How much is enough why don't you go asked his loving wife and 2 wonderful kids that he kissed good bye that tragic morning. How much is enough for a husband that left his wife to serve in the Desert Storm, that put on a badge everyday to protect the citizens of Martin and the surrounding counties in the war on drugs. How much is enough for a man that couldn't wait for the next DARE graduation to speak to the kids there hoping he could say something to keep just one child from tring drugs. You can't put a price on any of these things!!!!! Thank you so much Chris and anyone else that has spent time or money for this cause. Thanks in advance to all the citizens of Martin and surrounding counties for supporting this concert. Thanks for everthing that has been done for Charlie's family.
