Obituary for Edward Lee Brown

Edward Lee Brown, age 88, of Marionville, MO, passed away at 6:41 a.m. on Monday, March 5, 2018, at Mercy Hospital in Springfield, MO. He was born July 20, 1929, in Hurley, MO, the son of Roy and Opal (Hood) Brown.

Edward was a 1947 graduate of Hurley High School and was a machine operator for Dayco Products in Springfield for 31 years. He was very involved in the community, an avid supporter of Marionville sports and band. He was a generous and gregarious man who treated everyone around him like family and was known as “Uncle Eddie” or “Grandad” by a number of kids who didn’t learn until later that they weren’t actually related.

On May 3, 1948, he married Mary Harmon in Hurley, MO. Mary preceded him in death on March 19, 2016.

Edward is survived by his son, Paul Brown and his wife, Nancy, of Marionville; three grandchildren, Courtney Brown of Springfield, MO, Justin Brown and his wife, Deanna, of St. Louis, MO and Barbara Neely and her husband, Bryan, of Marionville, MO; three great-grandchildren, Chase, Emmit and Bodhi Neely; two daughters-in-law, Gwen Brown-Hensley of Marionville, MO and Bethany Brown-Dameron of Springfield, MO and many nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by three sons Steven, Mark and Kevin Brown and one sister, Willie Nelson of Fontana, California.

Visitation will be held from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, at Williams Funeral Home in Marionville, MO. The funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 8, 2018 in the funeral home chapel with burial to follow at the Marionville IOOF Cemetery.
