Ronald Lee Brown

April 26, 1942 ~ October 8, 2020 (age 78)


Ronald (Ron) Lee Brown, the son of Herbert Brown and Louise Brown was born April 26, 1942, in Phillips, Texas, and departed this life on October 8, 2020, in Owasso, Oklahoma at the age of 78 years.

He was greeted in the afterlife by his parents, maternal and paternal grandparents, parents in law, brother in law and niece.

Ron was a loving husband and father as well as the best papa ever to four grandchildren and great grandfather “papa Ron” to his four great-grandchildren.

Ron was an excellent provider. He spent his early years as a draftsman where he helped design off-shore oil platforms that were used in such places as the North Sea and Iran.  This career eventually took him and his family overseas to live in Iran for two years providing an unforgettable experience.  He later became a project engineer heading up projects in refineries across the United States.

He enjoyed many things throughout the years, including bowling, fishing, golfing, building, and fixing things. But most of all, he enjoyed his family and friends. He loved watching his children in their school activities and more recently his grandchildren. Ron enjoyed going out to eat with his wife and friends just as much as going out for ‘birthday dinners’ for each of his family members. Showing his love, sharing time, and making memories was Ron’s recipe for his wonderful life.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 58 years, Karen Brown; his two children, Amber Morgan and her husband Michael of Collinsville, Oklahoma, Scott Brown and his wife Jennifer of Dallas, Texas;

four grandchildren, Tyler Morgan, Miranda Brown, Brandon Morgan, Kinsley Brown; niece Keri Arellano and family; nephew Jeff Scott and wife Nicci and family; as well as numerous other relatives and friends.

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, at 11 a.m. at View Acres Baptist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma where Ron has been a member since 1969.  All are welcome to attend Ron’s service.  Visitation will be held on Monday, October 12, 2020, from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. at Heath-Griffith Funeral Home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
