Obituary of Rodney Glen Brown


Riley Funeral Home

Rodney G. Brown, passed away at the age of 73 in his home in Hamilton TX, Monday, January 2nd 2023. Rodney was born April 27, 1949, to father Otto Brown and mother Daisy Earline Clements Brown, in his family home right outside of Hamilton, TX.. He was born the third child out of four. Rodney spent his younger days doing odd jobs like working at a fuel station, or driving cars for Brumbalow Motors. He would also spend a lot of his time with his best friend Russell Gromatzky. After Rodney graduated from Hamilton High School, he would remain in Hamilton working for the CO-OP for 40 years, retiring in 2011. While working for the CO-OP, Rodney found Christ, causing him to throw down cigarettes, and beer to become a man of God. He would spend the rest of his life going to church at Living Hope, or watching Jimmy Swaggart on TV. He was really proud of his decision, and thanked God every day, for his many blessings. Rodney spent his retirement days at his home in Hamilton TX. He would spend his spare time in his garden, mowing the grass, watching TV, or going to visit with lifelong friends. As he got older he would need an extra hand around the house. He would hire high school boys that would work for him till they graduated and moved on. He loved “His Boys” very much, willing to do anything in the world for them, and was always there for them when they needed a hand. Letting them know what God did for him, and what he could do for them. He always loved when one of his boys stopped by to visit, and catch up for a few hours. Always leaving him with a big hug and tear in his eye. He is preceded by his parents Otto and Daisy Brown, nephew; Craig Brown. Rodney is survived by his brothers; Wiley Brown and wife Betty, Artis Brown and Michael Gene Brown and wife Geneva, nieces Hailey Brown Sandi Brown Guthrie & husband Mike, and their daughter Jaqi Walt, Melinda Brown, and nephew Alex Thiele.
