Bob completed his earthly journey last Wednesday morning, October 28, 2020. He was surrounded by his family, loving him and praying for his comfort and peace in passing. Bob was born March 8, 1948 in Barnesville, Ohio and grew up in Kenton, Ohio. His parents are Bob and Dorothy Brown. Bob is survived by his brother: Roger Brown, wife: Cheri Brown, 5 children: Ryan Brown (Kelli), Morgan Brown (Jessie), Irving Begay, Jayme Stoker (Ryan), & Lacey Dupont, and 18 most cherished grandchildren. Bob was all about his family, baseball, and the Rolling Stones! He loved baseball. If he wasn’t playing baseball, he was watching it on the TV. He was often seen with 1 or 2 small radios on either side of him while watching a game; 3 games on at a time, texting back and forth with his good friend Joel about each play.
Bob truly enjoyed watching his much loved grandkids play baseball and softball, perform in concerts, sing, dance, or jam out on the guitar to his favorite Stones music. Bob graduated from ONU, ASU, and UofA Law School. Bob was a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and loved it. It took a while for him to give up playing ball on Sundays, but he had a strong testimony and loved the Lord. His most favorite calling was teaching the 7 and 8 year old children preparing for baptism.
Bob had many challenges the last 20 or so years of his life. Cancer, a kidney transplant (donated by his daughter Lacey), and various other health issues. He fought every setback valiantly. He defied a few doctors with his strength and resilience, and was able to lengthen his earthly life by years, months and days. He was a survivor! Bob’s family and friends will miss him dearly. He was a sweetheart, best friend, wonderful father and grandfather.
