Pat was born on October 13, 1931, in Seymour, Iowa, to Warner S. and Corda M. (Johnson) Brown.

When returning home he was united in marriage to Mary Elizabeth "Libby" Cook on August 14, 1955, at Marlborough Baptist Church in Kansas City, Missouri. They were blessed with three daughters: Patricia Kay, Catherine Marie and Rebecca Lynn.

I was sorry to hear of Pat's passing. I enjoyed talking to him at school as he cut the grass. Becky and your sibs and families my condolences. May God grant you His peace.

Pat was a wonderful example of a Godly husband, father and grandfather. He had a sense of humor which was infectious and he was always eager to share his experiences. It was such a treat to visit with Pat and Libby when we vacationed in Holt and we definitely observed the love they had for each other. They were definitely an example to all of us not only in their marriage but also their love for the Lord!
