Sept. 12, 1944-Oct. 30, 2018

Farrell Stephen “Steve” Brown, 74, of Clifton, Ohio, died on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018, at Xenia Health and Rehab.

He was born on Sept. 12, 1944 in Dayton, Ohio, the son of Harry and Latha (Worrell) Brown. Steve was a U.S. Army veteran serving in Vietnam and he owned a tackle shop in Bonita Springs, Florida.

He moved to Alaska where he lived for 30 years in Homer until returning to Ohio five years ago. He worked in “The Bush” and as a truck driver for On-Demand Trucking. He enjoyed fishing and hunting, especially at the fishing hole in Homer. He liked people and reading his Bible. He loved to sit on the front porch on the farm watching for deer.

“Uncle Steve was a straight shooter with a kind heart,” his family said.

He is survived by two daughters, Stephanie Brown Watts-Thomas of Alabama and Felicia Brown of Florida; a son, Farrell Brown, of Florida; one sister, Maxine Kern of Florida; a grandson, Jarrett Daniel Thomas, and two granddaughters, Jordan Caroline Clayton and Gabriella Brown; several nieces and nephews, and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; three sisters, Barbara Joyce Miller, Shirley Applegate and Ada Pack; and two brothers, George Brown and Buster Brown.

Graveside services were held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, at the Dayton National Cemetery, Ohio.
