John Bernard Brown
May 30, 1933 – August 8, 2019
John Bernard Brown, 86, of Katy, Texas, entered into rest on August 8, 2019. He was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 30, 1933 to parents Bernard B. Brown and Eula Brown.
John was a graduate of Central High School in Oklahoma City, and went on to receive a Bachelor's degree from Oklahoma City University. He was a proud veteran of the United States Army where he served as a military policeman. He married the love of his life Jo Anna Gee on August 30, 1955.
John worked in sales for Addressograph Multigraph and later owned the Alief Feed Store, but in his free time loved to relax with his daily crossword puzzle. In the past, he had volunteered as a committee chairman for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which enabled him to work closely with his children and their livestock projects.
John is survived by his cherished wife of 63 years, Jo Anna Gee Brown; children Wade and Wes Brown; grandchildren Ryan, Alexus, and Savannah. He was preceded in passing by his parents Bernard B. Brown and Eula Brown, daughter Melanie Brown, and sister Mary Suzanne Grossman.

John and Jo Anna have been wonderful neighbors. They have looked after our mail for us when we were out of town, and we would occasionally visit with John in the man cave where he would tell us stories and share cherished memories about his memorabilia. We were so fond of John and he will be missed. Our sincere condolences to the family.

Words cannot express how saddened I was to hear of the loss of Mr. Brown. He was a good man. I remember all the years he delivered feed and supplies to the zoo. He always had a joke and a twinkle in his eye. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
