Many years ago I had the privilege of meeting Arlie Brown when I was starting off my working career at Donoghue Chrysler/Plymouth in Syracuse. He was by far one of the best Mopar technicians I have ever met. His talent and expertise was unsurpassed by anyone. He will be sorely missed I'm sure not just by me but by everyone he knew and met. May you rest in peace with our Lord and find eternal paradise.

Dear Kathi & Diana...sorry for the loss of your brother and father who has just left you. We did not see much of cousin Arlie over the years but did hear many good things from Aunt Nina & Uncle Arlie while they were living. He is no longer in pain, so you can move on knowing that. Our sincerest condolences go out to all of you who have watched him suffer. RIP Arlie Jr.! Love, Judy & Paul...London, Ontario, Canada.

Diana and Katherine,
I surely will miss your dad and brother. I had been friends with Arlie for the better part of 40 years.
Unfortunately, due to time, distance and health I had not been able to spend time with Arlie since tha passing of John Gosson. Although we spoke on occasion, I am sorry I didn't get to spend more time with him. For that, I will always regret. He was the best darn Mopar drag racer/mechanic I ever knew. Always grateful to Arlie for all the things I learned from him while working at Brown's Performance from the station in Taunton to the shop on Charles Ave., and the shop at the house, Arlie was one heck of a teacher. All the hours spent getting ready ready for a drag race, I will always remember with fondness.
Arlie was my friend and for that I felt blessed to know him.
God Bless,
Rod and Jill Henry
Livonia, NY

I just heard of Arlie's passing. I always had great respect for him as a person and for his knowledge. I know he was a great brother and good father. I will miss him. He is most likely driving the Little Angel now.

I sympathize with your loss. (I lost my dad in 1998, and I still miss him!) May your loving memories bring you comfort... because as long as even one person remembers, he's not really gone...
