He was married years ago, but his wife died; in the original Tyler Perry plays, they had a daughter, but the character was never mentioned in the films and only shown in the play "Madea's Family Reunion".
Brown isn't overbright mentally, that is; the word more aptly describes his outrageous dress sense and he has the wiseguy role, making fun of characters like Edna and Reggie; but he is a nice, caring, giving man. He works part-time as a hospital janitor and also as a school enforcement officer he once beat up a teacher he thought had done something wrong. He is somewhat good at karate, busting out his "Kangaroo" move. His catchphrases include "Stop being nasty! In one episode Brown begins to deal with his diabetes.

A childless widow, she later becomes engaged to Reggie Brooks, the football coach at her school who lives with his mother, Thelma In the play and movie, Cora had 2 adult daughters.

Will is Brown's nephew, a doctor who loves his uncle so much that he provides free medical services to the retirement-home residents.
He and his wife Sasha have become adoptive parents to Brianna and Joaquin Ortiz. Will never met his father; Vera, his alcoholic mother, met his father while she was drunk.
Sasha, Will's wife, is a nurse who decides to work for Brown helping to look after the retirement-home residents. Sasha and Will start their family by adopting Brianna and Joaquin Ortiz. In one episode Sasha becomes pregnant, then miscarries. She is also very good at giving advice. Tony Vaughn as Colonel Cleophus Jackson: The Colonel is a former military man who still lives as if he's in the military.
His motto is "Shoot now, ask questions later. His wife died several years ago and he's estranged from their only child, daughter Karen. He takes up with Edna Barnes; in Season 3 they moved out of Brown Meadows to a house down the street. He finally weds Edna in Season 5.
Most of her close friends and relatives have passed. She's extremely in touch with her sexuality—she can relate everything to sex—and acts like "late 60s" is the new A running gag involves Brown comparing Edna to various animals.
She finally weds the Colonel in Season 5. In the series pilot she had a crush on Brown, telling him to come in his bed with her plus showing him her full body naked. Brianna is a foster child who comes from a broken home and an unsafe foster environment.
