Mr. Donnie Brown passed from this life on Wednesday afternoon, February 7, 2024, from the Cookeville Reginal Medical Center. He was born April 7, 1953, in Livingston Tennessee to Charlie Truman Brown, and the late Reva Morene Smith Brown. Donnie was a 1971 graduate of Livingston Academy and a member of the Summer Shade Church of Christ. Donnie would have celebrated his 71st birthday in just two short months. His family often joked that he would outlive them all. Donnie was a devoted worker. He worked many years at Berkline, Athena, and TRW. After a short time of retirement, he started stocking bread to make a little extra money. Donnie was one of the tightest people on earth. He loved deer hunting and the stories he could talk about killing deer were almost unbelievable. More than anything Donnie loved his friends, and family. If you needed him, he was there. From delivering breakfast to cheering on Big Sissy (Briley) and Bubba (Rylan) at their ballgames. His most recent job and possibly his favorite was bringing Little Sissy (Hattie) Reese's Peanut Butter Cups every time he saw her. Donnie wouldn't want us to be sad. We can see that mischievous smile on his face, hear him rattling the change in his pocket, knowing this is how he would have wanted things to be. A life lived well, and memories that will continue to make us smile.
Donnie leaves behind his father, Truman Brown of the Summer Shade Community; sisters, Vickie Brown Dodson and (Randy) of Livingston, TN, and Peggy Brown McCollum of Hixson, TN; nephew, David Dodson of Mt. Juliet, TN; nieces, Amanda Masters and (Chad) of Rickman, TN, and Megan Grant and (Jared) of Soddy Daisey, TN; great nieces, Briley Masters, and Hattie Laine Masters; great nephews, Rylan Masters, and Jaxon Grant.
In addition to his mother, Donnie was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Jeff McCollum.
Pallbearers to serve are Chad Masters, David Dodson, Randy Dodson, Doug Reagan, Ed Melton, and Steve Martin.
