Charles Lee Brown, Sr.

May 4, 1945 — February 23, 2022

Charles (Charlie) Brown Sr., 76, Washington, died February 23, 2022 at the Washington County Hospital from complications due to Covid. Funeral services will be at a later date. Charlie was born in Bakersfield, CA on May 4, 1945 to John J. and Margaret (Marppey) Brown. He graduated from high school in Broxton, OK and entered the U.S. Army. Charles served from 1963 to 1985 with two tours in Germany, three tours in Vietnam and one tour in Korea, as well as assignments in Virginia, Texas, Kansas, and California. On April 20, 1966, he was united in marriage to Doris Laul while on his first tour in Germany. They were blessed with two children, Charles (Charlie) Jr. and Charlotte. Upon retiring from the Army after 22 years of service, he moved to Washington, and worked with Charles Walter in concrete construction. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and riding 4-wheelers on the dirt trails in Colorado. He especially enjoyed riding his Honda Gold Wing trike. He was happy when his children moved to Kansas so he could spend more time with them. Preceding him in death were his parents; son, Charlie Brown Jr.; daughter, Charlotte Brady; sister Florence; and brother, John Brown. Survivors include his ex-wife, Doris Laul, Petaluma, CA; brothers, Jack Brown, Allen, TX, Glenn Brown, Costa Mesa, CA; and sister Jan Dupire, as well as many nieces and nephews. A memorial fund is established and will be designated later. Contributions may be sent in care of Ward Funeral Home, Washington.
