Mr. Browning lived most of his life in Hall County and was known for his sense of humor. After his retirement from Wrigley’s in 1992, he was able to spend much of his time on woodworking, his favorite hobby, and traveling. He was a member of Wahoo Baptist Church. He was fiercely devoted to his family and his greatest joy came from spending time with them.
The family will receive visitors at the funeral home on Saturday from 2 – 4 and 6 – 8. Strickland’s Funeral Home of Clermont is in charge of the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Wahoo Baptist Church for the Awana Program.
