In 1961 John F. Brown, son of Samuel W. and Anne J. Brown, became licensed as a practitioner of mortuary science, thus the name of the funeral home was changed to S.W. Brown & Son Funeral Home. Upon John's graduation from Seton Hall University in 1964, he joined the family business on a full time basis. In 1974 John and his wife Jo-Ann, purchased the business and property from Samuel Brown who had recently become a widower. In 1976 the business was incorporated with John F. Brown becoming the funeral home manager. In 1986, John purchased the Johnesee Nutley Home For Funerals from Everett and Mary Jayne Johnesee who sold the property on Washington Ave. in Nutley. The funeral business was relocated to 267 Centre Street and is now run as a dual operation with both corporations using the same facility. John F. Brown is the manager of both corporations. Peter Brown, the third generation, graduated from Xavier University in 1989. After which he completed mortuary college and was licensed in 1992.
