Kenneth met his wife of 55 years, Patsy Carlene Durant, at a Gospel ‘singing’ in Granbury and were married a year later on November 19, 1966. Kenneth and Pat both brought children to the marriage. Kenneth had a son and daughter, Kenneth Brown Jr. and Denise Robertson. Pat had three sons, Danny Thomas, Randy Thomas and Kenneth Thomas. After a year of marriage, they together had another son, Jake Brown.

As an active member of Ash Creek Baptist Church in Azle one of Kenneth’s proudest moments was when he was ordained as a Deacon. He continued to serve in that role until his passing.

Kenneth spent over 40 years working in the furniture moving business before retiring after another 16 years as an Azle ISD bus driver.

Many of his friends also know him as Coach Brown as he often volunteered to coach his son’s sports teams.

In addition to the aforementioned family members, Kenneth was survived by 21 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.
