He was the son of Micou Farrar Browne and Katherine Metcalf Browne and was preceded in death by his parents.

He worked for many years as an entomologist in the Agricultural Research Department of NC State University. Following his retirement, he worked as a tobacco and agricultural consultant. He was instrumental in starting organic tobacco companies. He attended NCSU where he received his undergraduate degree in Zoology in 1975 and his M.S in Entomology in 1980. 

He was a naturalist in every sense of the word. He was a volunteer for the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service devoting more than 45 years to leading groups of bird banders in coastal North Carolina. He was active in the community as a member of Raleigh Kiwanis Club, Past-President of Raleigh Executive Club, Adviser of the NCSU Circle K Club, NCSU Friends of the Library and President of the Triangle Camellia Society.
