Obituary of Warren Lynn Brown
Warren Lynn Brown, age 72 of
Gulf Breeze, FL, passed away
May 6, 2023 after a hard
fought battle from
complications with Leukemia.
Lynn was born September 8,
1950 to Henry Glenn and
Frances Van Dusen Brown in
Malvern, AR just minutes
before his twin brother Glenn.
Lynn served in the United
States Air Force for 23 years,
where he earned multiple
honors including the
Commandant's Award at the
NCO Academy. He retired as a
Senior Master Sergeant in 1996. His career and achievements became an
important source of inspiration to his nephew Zach joining the military. Lynn
continued to serve after his retirement, as a police officer in Newport News, VA
before moving to Northwest Florida. He finally retired for the last time from
Oak Ridge Gun Range in 2022.
Lynn’s sense of adventure and fearlessness was unmatched. Skydiving, bull
riding, police officer, shark angler, and Airman. A true competitor at heart he
refused to lose at anything, especially to his twin brother. Lynn loved all things
outdoors: an avid hunter, golfer and fisherman. He was a devoted dog dad who
loved to talk about his boys! He was married to his best friend Cathy for more
than 20 years, together they loved beach life and sharing it with family. He
loved his family and friends selflessly and completely, made friends everywhere
he went, and lived out what it meant to protect and to serve.
Lynn is survived by his loving wife and soul mate Cathy Brown, their two dogs
Beau and Thor of Gulf Breeze, FL; his son Brian Brown (Shawna) of
Midlothian, TX., his sister Georgia Small (Bud) of Hot Springs, AR., brother
Eric Brown (Lilly) of Malvern, AR and his nieces and nephews: Brandi Davis
(Phil) Cave Springs, AR., Blake Small (Sara) Hot Springs, AR; Brooke
Chapman (Chad) Mountain Home, AR; Lance Small (Rachel) Oologah, OK.
As well as, sisters-in-law, great nephews and nieces and a host of cousins . He
was preceded in death by his twin brother, Harry Glenn Brown, his father
Henry Glenn Brown, and his mother Frances (Pete) VanDusen Brown. As well
as, his beloved Buddy and Scout (man’s best friends)
At his request, no funeral service will be held. A celebration of life will take
place at a future date. Lynn’s legacy and adventurous spirit will forever live on
in the countless lives of those he loved and influenced.
