While attending VSU, he fell in love with his wife, KiKidee, and the two became one on December 12, 2011 and to this union were born two children.

Arthell proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corps and retired after 21 years of service. He worked at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Georgia.

Arthell gave his life to Christ at an early age and joined New Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. Arthell had an avid love for all sports, but was by far a football jock. He participated in basketball, football and track and field while attending Worth County High School. He then went on to play for the Valdosta State University blazers Football team. He played Defensive Back, and won a few GSC Championships. Those that knew him well dared not to speak against the Florida State Seminoles and the New England Patriots. MJ, Kobe and if Lebrina was the man!

On Saturday, April 25, 2020, after touching the hearts of many Arthell transitioned from this life and gained his heavenly wings. Many were saddened by his passing but joyful in knowing that he knew the Lord and the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for his life.

I worked with Arthell at CARDF, I learned quickly how humble he was and passionate about competition. He loved his Marine Corps Family and noone ever had a cross word to say about Sgt Brown. I will miss your motivation and how you shown me life is simple just let it roll and God will sort it out. I will miss you my brother.
