Gary Wayne Brown

Feb. 23, 1949-Nov. 25, 2021


Gary Brown left his pain behind, on Nov. 25, 2021. He was 72 years old.

He was born and raised in White County. Gary was the son of Lawrence Willard Brown and Pearlie Ann Thompson Brown.

He was also preceded in death by his parents and his wife, Janace Ann Owens Brown.

Gary graduated from White County High School, Class of 1967. He served his country in the United States Air Force and later found his calling as a medical laboratory technician. His career brought him to Savannah, Tennessee, where he practiced for over 20 years, married, and raised a son.

He made friends everywhere. He never met a stranger. Everyone cherished his jokes and stories. In recent years, he rekindled old friendships with his classmates from high school and made new friends in Murfreesboro where he moved after his “Bride” of 43 years passed.

In addition to family and friends, he loved his best friend, Mitty, who was his constant companion, and all things Tennessee, especially Vols football. Whether you knew him as “Doc,” “Doug,” “WG,” brother, husband, Dad, or Grandpa, you knew he was one of a kind. He will be missed by all who loved him, and, if you met him, you loved him.

Gary is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Jonathan “Jon” and Allison Brown, of Murfreesboro; grandchildren, Lilly Ann, Jay Brown, both of Murfreesboro; and a sister, Janice Savage, of Sparta.

Visitation was held from 2-4 p.m., Nov. 28, 2021, at Woodfin Memorial Chapel, in Murfreesboro.

Woodfin Memorial Chapel, in Murfreesboro, was in charge of arrangements.
