Roger Dean Brown

December 19, 1959May 8, 2021

Roger Dean Brown, born December 19, 1959, peacefully departed this world and experienced earlier-than-planned reunions with some of his most beloved family members on May 8, 2021 at the age of 61 in Leander, Texas. A deep lover of rock n’ roll, the Texas hill country and the lakes of west Austin, Roger was an incredible father and deeply loved by his four daughters and two grand-daughters. He lived his life as one of the coolest dudes we all knew, yet a very deep feeler, and was never one to hold back both tears and opinions.

As a child, Roger was born the fifth of seven children in an active military family, the youngest boy, later having a short military assignment in his early adulthood. Roger spent most of his adult life in the Austin-area where he raised his children and was supported by the local community as a trusted businessman, known widely as Roger Brown A/C. Suffering one of the greatest tragedies a parent could know in 1999, Roger lost his first-born child and his best bud, “Little Roger” (also “Bubba”) at the age of 19. Remaining one of the most devoted fathers we all knew, his four daughters and two granddaughters became his happy place. He sure did love all of his girls - and often called them all his “pride and joy.”

Roger is preceded in death by Roger Hendrick Brown, Jr. (son), Presley Blue Reser (granddaughter), James Leslie Brown, Jr. and Georgia Lee Clark Brown (parents), and James Ricky Brown (brother).

Surviving him are Roger’s children Chelsea Brown Reser and husband Kyle Reser, Carly Ann Brown and fiancé Ben Sibley, Emily Dawn Brown, and Elizabeth Grace Brown; Grand-children Raelynn Jane Reser, Hadley Brynn Reser, and another baby girl on the way; Siblings Ronnie Lee Brown, Connie Brown Leman and husband Kevin of San Antonio, Robert Alan Brown and his wife Terry of Friendswood, Christy Brown Smith and husband David of Texas City, and Cheryl Leslie Brown and husband Chuck Bailey of Tennessee, and many nieces and nephews.

A gathering for friends and family will be Saturday, July 24, 2021 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Cook-Walden/Capital Parks Funeral Home, 14501 North Interstate 35, Pflugerville, TX 78660, followed by a memorial service from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

I just used that trick you showed me on the inside AC unit and I still owe you a Texas game ticket. I'll buy an extra this season.

Miss you brother.

Uncle Rog,

You shaped me more than you realize... from my love of boating on lakes and water skiing, to seeing you be so resilient and surviving such hard events in your life only to thrive once again, to the greatest lesson you you ever taught me by saying "Just be true to you, don't worry about anyone else." It was something you always lived and I'm trying to do the same.

You never once hesitated to show unconditional love for me and my family. And I will miss you greatly. You were one of the coolest dudes I ever knew.

Just learning of the loss of Roger. He would come out to Lometa to help us with properties we had bought up in the north hill country. He was quickly more than a professional acquaintance. We considered him a friend. He adored his daughters and granddaughters. We are devastated to have missed the gathering. Please know that Roger was a bright spot in our lives and the world is going to be a lot dimmer without him.

Roger was a devoted father and grandfather whose eyes would always start twinkling when ever he spoke of his girls. He was a good friend who will be missed.

Roger and I started doing business on a hand shake and that was always the way it worked! He did what he said he would do and was responsive and reliable! He installed and personally maintained AC units in many of my commercial properties and both my home’s. It did not take long for our business relationship to turn into friendship! Miss you bro but, you are in a better place with God! Your family, and in particular son-in-law Kyle, are picking up where you left off with continuing friendship and reliable business services!! Rest In Peace my friend 🙏😇. David

Our heartfelt condolences to his girls and family. We were all so saddened to hear of Roger’s passing . He was a wonderful person to all who had the privilege of knowing him. He loved his family and his girls were his most cherished possessions. When I last saw him a few years ago he spoke so lovingly about his daughters and grand babies. How he loved them and was just so proud. Our thoughts and prayers remain with his girls during this most difficult time. Love and hugs from Louisiana.
