He passed from this life on February 7, 2013 in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the age of 79 years & 16 days. After graduating from High School, Gene enlisted in the United States Navy. He was proud of his service to our country and in later years enjoyed different V.A. activities and sharing his military experiences at different schools and events. His grandchildren were always proud to have him speak at their schools. On November 23, 1963, Gene married Alice Wilson at the Concharty United Methodist Church. Together they had five children. Gene loved his family and was always ready to go fishing with anyone that was willing. He also had a wonderful sense of humor and never met a stranger, making everyone feel welcome and wanted. One of the things Gene was adamant about in his life was that each and every one of his kids knew their math. That was extremely important to him and he would drill them on it. Gene also loved the Lord. He spent a great deal of time reading his Bible and studying his Sunday School lesson. His closeness to God was reflected in how he treated others and other creatures. Hummingbirds were among those creatures. Gene greatly enjoyed watching and feeding them but his family was his greatest joy. He was very grateful to God for each member. Gene was preceded in death by his parents, 1 daughter; Monica Jean Brown on December 15, 1984, 1 brother; Felix Brown & 3 sisters; Frances Ryan, Ina Gibson & Jane Tiger.
