    Brickhouse Brown Passes Away At 57

    Brickhouse Brown has passed away July 29 at the age of 57 after his battle with cancer.

    Brown flatlined on July 20 and was pronounced dead by the hospice nurse. Family and friends were notified, but while Brown's Mother, Victoria Timmins, slept next to him she heard Brown say, "Mom, I'm hungry" and continued speaking with her. The coroner was traveling to take the body at that time. The news of his passing was initially reported by close friend of the family and President of the Cauliflower Alley Club, Brian Blair.

    Earlier this year, the Cauliflower Alley Club honored Brown with a Courage Award.

    Debuting in 1982 in Texas, Brown worked for multiple promotions in the 80s and 90s including AWA, USWA, and the CWA where he would feud with Terry Funk, Scott Steiner, Jerry "The King" Lawler, and others. Brown reintroduced himself to a new generation of wrestling fans through shoot interviews about his time in pro wrestling.

    Rest in peace Frederick Seawright.

    This guy was a very solid worker in the eighties. He represents what the other promotions could offer. He was one of the guys who made the sport of "Wrastlin" fun back in the day.

    Overshadowed considering who else had passed that day, but RIP.

    I don't recall ever hearing of him, but it's yet another from the wrestling world, gone too soon.

    I recall him being on WCCW for a time. He was like the predecessor of Iceman King Parsons.
