‘Good Times’ Actor Johnny Brown dies

Johnny Brown, known for his role as Nathan Bookman on ‘Good Times,’ has died at the age of 84.

Sharon Catherine Brown, his daughter, shared the news in a Friday Instagram post.

“Johnny Brown June 11, 1937 – March 2, 2022. Our family is devastated. Devastated. Devastated. Beyond heartbroken,” she wrote.

“Barely able to breathe. We respectfully ask for privacy at this time because we need a minute to process the unthinkable. To articulate the depths of profound sadness. This is my mom’s husband for sixty one years, mine and JJ’s dad, Elijah and Levi’s Pop Pop, older brother to George and brother in law to Pat and extended family to Chris, Hihat, Damian and Derell. It’s too terrible. It will never not be. It’s a shock. He was literally snatched out of our lives. It’s not real for us yet. So there will be more to say but not now. Dad was the absolute best. We love him so very much.”

Brown also served in numerous other television shows, and movies, including the films “A Man Called Adam” and “Town & Country.”

His loss brings much sadness to all who knew him, though his legacy will remain for years to come.
