Lowell " Brownie" Brown
Chapel Oaks Funeral Home in Hiawatha
Hiawatha , KS

Lowell F. “Brownie” Brown 77, of Hiawatha, passed away June 17, 2019 at his brother Steve’s home is Robinson, Kansas.

Lowell was born August 31, 1941 at Chapman, Kansas to Harold O. and Geneva L. (Martin) Brown.

He is survived by his son Calvin of Hiawatha and three brothers: Steve of Robinson, Kansas, Martin of Omaha, Nebraska and Dana of Gilbert, South Carolina, also an aunt and several cousins.

Brownie worked for the United Telephone Company for 39 years, retiring as an installer/repairman, working mainly in the Brown and Doniphan county area. He had been active in the BPOE #1741 Elks Lodge, Masonic Lodge #35, AF&AM, both of Hiawatha, Moila Shrine of St. Joseph, MO, and the Hiawatha Jaycees. He enjoyed participating in the Hiawatha Halloween Parade for many years with the Shrine’s motorcycle club.

He enjoyed visiting with family and friends and was an avid photographer. He always enjoyed taking pictures of the Eagles at Squaw Creek Refuge where he would spend hours watching the Eagles and all the wild life. Brownie also enjoyed taking pictures at the Jingle Bell Ride.

Brownie will be missed by his family and host of friends. When working, he would always take time to visit and was dedicated to resolving what issues you may be having with phone service. He would sit on his porch and would always have a big wave when you drove by.

To celebrate Brownie’s life, a short service is planned for Saturday June 29th at 11:00 am at the Fisher Center Gymnasium in Hiawatha. Tony French will officiate.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the American Cancer Society, sent in care of Chapel Oaks Funeral Home, Hiawatha, who is assisting the family.
