John Wesley Brown, Jr.

October 21, 1947 — April 28, 2022


John W. Brown, Jr. was born October 21, 1947, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to the union of the late John W. Brown, Sr. and the late Velta Ruth Lee (Kinchion).

He matriculated through Oklahoma City’s public school system and was a graduate of Douglass High School, where he was on the football team. He went on to serve in the United States Army – fought for his country during the Vietnam War and was honored with a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. He was later employed as a Water Treatment Specialist at Tinker Air Force Base, until he retired around 2010.

Affectionately known to his family and friends as “Jr. Brown” or “Junior Boy”, John enjoyed reading and wearing fashionable clothing, sneakers, and jewelry.
