Kevin “Pop” Browning Sr. was the 4 th child born to David Browning and the late
Ida Louise (Byrd) Browning, on October 8, 1960 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Raised
in West Philadelphia, Kevin received his formal education in the Philadelphia School
District. Kevin accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Bible Way Baptist
Church. During his high school years, Kevin played football for a short period of time
until he decided that he didn’t have time for games.

At an early age, Kevin decided that he wanted to work and put all of his focus
and attention into that. He was introduced to a whole new world where Kevin began his
career as a longshoreman at the Waterfront, which spanned over 40 years.

In 1978, Kevin met his soul mate and the love of his life, Renee and were
married on September 22, 1985. They were blessed to have a life of happiness and
beautiful times together. From this union of love, 3 children were born, Kevin, Jr., Keith
and Sherina. A strong family foundation was built, filled with love and great memories.
After reflecting on his life, Kevin decided to rededicate his life to Christ in 1997 in
his childhood home church of Bible Way Baptist Church. He was an active member of
the church, serving as a Trustee and an Usher. He would share his love for the Lord
with anyone that would listen, wherever he went especially during his many shopping
trips to the market and Walmart.

One of the most important things to Kevin was his family. His most enjoyable
times were spent talking and laughing with his family. He loved to have seafood feasts,
listening to good music was his favorite pass time… playing scratch-off lottery tickets.
Kevin was an honorable, well-respected man who would give his family the shirt off his
back if they needed it. With his words of wisdom, a witty comment and his infectious
smile, Kevin was known and loved by all who he encountered during his journey and will
be missed immensely.

On the morning of Wednesday, April 7, 2021, Kevin departed this life and
entered into God’s kingdom to his final resting place.
Preceding him in death: his mother, Ida Louise (Bryd) Browning; and a brother,
David Browning Jr. Kevin Browning Sr. leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife of over 36
years, Renee; his two sons Kevin Jr. (daughter-in-love Chandra) and Keith (daughter-in-
love Shawanda); his daughter Sherina; seven grandchildren; Samir, Faheem, Fharelle,
