Kenneth E. Brown

January 7, 1930 — August 21, 2019

Kenneth E. Brown was born Jan. 7, 1930, in Butler, Missouri to Rhoda Seward and Jacob Brown. He had two brothers, Sylvester Hartsell and David Brown as well as three sisters, Alberta Crabtree, Edith Thornburg and Violet Longo, all of whom preceded Kenneth in death.

Kenneth and his wife, Velma Ilene (McCoy) Brown, married in July 1952 and have four daughters, Barbara (Bob) Russell, Susan (Jim) Alstatt, Nancy King, and Linda (Gary) Brown. Also surviving are many grand, great-grand, great-great-grandchildren.

Kenneth had a hard life growing up during the depression, but he joined the Air Force when he was 21 and that made a very good life for him. He stayed in the Air Force for twenty years and, during that time, a year in Vietnam where he earned the Bronze Star. After retirement as a Tech Sgt. from the Air Force, Kenneth worked for the State of Texas for 17 years.

Kenneth was always very dedicated to making a good life for his family. He and his wife Ilene retired to the country outside of Burnet and enjoyed their retirement years there.
