Benjamin “Ben” Joseph Brown, 41, of Cabool, Missouri, went to be with the Lord on May 29, 2020 at Cox South Medical Center in Springfield, Missouri, due to complications from pancreatitis.
He was born on December 30, 1978 in Houston, Missouri, the son of Darrell and Pam (Peachee) Brown. Ben attended Cabool Schools and graduated with the Class of 1997.
Ben’s kind heart wasn’t reserved just for those he loved, but everyone he came in contact with. His infectious love for all people meant he never knew a stranger. He was the life of the party and loved to “rock out” in the car as he blared his music. He often boasted about his daughter, Autumn, fist pumping in the back seat to Nelly at the ripe old age of two; she was his pride and joy. He was the loudest and proudest parent in the stands which meant you always knew when he was there. Autumn was the apple of Ben’s eye; that will never change.
Ben was preceded in death by his grandparents, Gene and Bertha Brown and Delmar and Mable Peachee.
He is survived by his daughter, Autumn Marie Brown of Nixa, Missouri; his parents, Darrell and Pam Brown of Cabool; brother, Brandon Brown and wife Kelli of Odessa, Missouri; sister, Chelsea Melton and husband Douglas of Cabool; two nephews, Samuel Brown and Dylan Melton; a niece, Shelby Brown; along with numerous relatives and dear friends who will miss him greatly.
Graveside memorial services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Friday, June 5, 2020, at Mt. Ararat Cemetery with Doug McCall officiating. Inurnment will be in Mt. Ararat Cemetery under the direction of Elliott-Gentry-Carder Funeral Home of Cabool. Online condolences may be made at www.egcfuneralhome.com.
