Monson - Parker D. "PJ" Brown, 25 , died suddenly on October 3, 2017 as a result of an aneurysm. Born November 1, 1991 in Springfield, he was the son of the late Amene (Hassin) Hashim and Parker J. Brown of Monson. PJ grew up in Monson and was a 2010 graduate of Monson High School. He furthered his schooling at WyoTech in PA with an Associates Degree in Applied Service Management and Heavy Duty Diesel Technology.

PJ was a smart, hardworking and driven young man who began Peak Diesel in his mom's garage. That business evolved into its present location on Rte 32 in Monson. He was devoted to his work and worked to mentor others who had the same aspirations. He was known in his community for his work ethic and received many awards for his support within the schools and the community.

He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him, but most especially by the love of his life, Jenna Kelley and their beagle Spicer, his sisters Marissa "Missy" Brown of Monson and Lyla Wiemokly and her husband Skyler of Missoula, MT. A Celebration of Life will be Tuesday, October 10 at 10:00 a.m. in the First Church of Monson, followed by burial in Hillcrest Cemetery.

Calling hours will be Monday from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the Beers & Story Palmer Funeral Home, 1475 N. Main St, (Rte.20).
