Kenneth R. Brown, 72,

Kenneth R. Brown, 72, peacefully left his earthly home on Friday, February 24, 2017 with his beloved wife and dog at his side at his residence in Laurel Park. Ken was born in Miami, Florida, January 12, 1945 while his father was serving in the United States Army during World War II. Ken was also a veteran of the United States Army holding the rank Captain and was assigned to HQ Finance Corps in the Ryukyu Islands during active duty. He was pleased to experience the current climate of honor and respect toward veterans and active duty military after having gone through the Viet Nam era.
Ken’s professional career took the family to several states with 21 years spent in Winston-Salem, NC where Kenneth, Jr. and Alison spent their formative years. Ken and Connie moved to Hendersonville in 2001. Ken was a devoted father and husband who enjoyed running, water and snow skiing, fast cars, and football (especially his alma mater Florida State University Seminoles). He provided his family with amazing opportunities which included annual trips to the beach and five international experiences. He will be terribly missed by all who knew him.
Ken and his wife, Constance (Connie) Brown recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Ken is survived by his son, Kenneth Brown, Jr. of Helsingborg, Sweden and his daughter Alison Brown of Charleston, SC along with numerous cherished extended family members in Asheville, Georgia, SC, and Florida. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, L.J. and Gertrude Stanley of Hendersonville, his parents, Robert and Kathryn Brown of Fletcher, and his brother Rodney M. Brown of Fletcher.
The family is respecting Ken’s wishes for no formal services at this time. A celebration of his life will be planned at a later date. The family wishes to express gratitude to CarePartners Hospice for the generous support and comfort provided in just one short week.
