Mr. Brown passed away Saturday, July 6, 2024 at the age of eighty-nine. He worked with his father on their dairy farm until he graduated from Rayville High School. Mr. Brown moved to Ruston to attend LA Tech. He worked at Lauren’s Glass Plant in Simsboro, LA, where he was head electrician, and later worked offshore for Conoco Phillips. After retirement, he and Kaye moved to Monticello, AR where he began to fly fire patrol for the state of Arkansas. Flying was Joe’s passion since he was a young man. He was an accomplished flyer for many years. Mr. Brown bought his first plane in Monticello, and he enjoyed taking trips with Kaye to visit family in Texas. But, his second plane that he bought was his favorite of all. It was a Cessna 172. He loved that plane almost as much as he loved his beloved Kaye. He is survived by his wife, Kaye Floyd Brown; children, Deborah Brown of West Monroe, LA, Doug Brown (Reita) of Temple, TX, Dan Brown of Round Rock, TX; and grandson, Tyler Brown of Leander, TX. Mr. Brown is preceded in death by his parents, Joe Clifton and Lillie Mae Patton Brown. Serving the family as pallbearers will be Hobie Martin, Hunter Martin, Dalton Martin, Paul Martin, Tim Martin, and Scott Sams. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to North Monroe Baptist Church “Standifer Life Group” at 210 Finks Hideaway Rd. Monroe, LA 71203.
