Joel Daniel Brown, age 78, of Strasburg, and formerly of Dover, passed away Friday, July 14, 2017, in his home, following a long illness.

Born October 11, 1938, in Millersburg, he was a son of the late Lyman and Lura Pyers Brown. Joel graduated from Canton Lincoln High School, and went on to attend Kent State University. He was employed by the Alfred Nickles Bakery, Navarre, and United Parcel Service in both Canton and New Philadelphia, from which he retired as a supervisor.

Joel was a member of Trinity Episcopal Church, New Philadelphia. He enjoyed camping, and belonged to the Buckeye Cruisers Camping Club. Joel enjoyed the game of golf, and was a long-suffering Cleveland sports fan; he was pleased to witness the Cavs win an N.B.A. championship and the Indians in the World Series.
