Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Ricky Brown, age 63

Ricky Brown, 63, of Cabot, Arkansas, went to be with the Lord September 29, 2023 in Jacksonville, Arkansas. He was born May 28, 1960 in Fordyce, Arkansas to the late Harmon Oliver “Red” Brown and Bobbie Jean Brown.

He was also preceded in death by his sisters Sandra Kay Brown and Mary Alice Mahoney.

He also leaves behind 20 grandchildren, as well as numerous other family and friends.

Ricky was an avid hunter and fisherman. He was most at peace when in the deer woods or in a boat on the water. He was a talented musician who loved to play bass and guitar and could play nearly any instrument he put his hands on. Ricky loved his family and would be there in a drop of a hat if someone needed him.
