Wayne Brown

Wayne Edward Brown was born May 8, 1944, at home around Nicicola Creek north of Hominy to Walter Edward and Mozell (Butcher) Brown. Wayne was the third child and third son of a sibling group of four. He worked on the family farm growing up feeding cows, taking care of horses. He loved to go hunting and fishing as a kid. He loved to explore the Dalton Caves close to their home. He attended school at Mound Valley for eleven years but transferred to Hominy for his senior year. Wayne graduated in 1962.   

After graduating Wayne went to work at Hal's Well Service and worked on the railroad. He was drafted into the United States Army in July 1965. He spent a tour in Vietnam, where he was awarded the Bronze Star. He was discharged in July 1967.

Wayne went in construction which took him all over the United States. He came home and went to the local dentist to have a checkup. While there he met the dental assistant, Sondra Gayle Glasgow. Whenever Wayne came home Sondra worked hard to get him back to the dentist for his teeth; but Sondra just wanted to see him again. They fell in love and got married on December 15, 1974.

Wayne became a welder at Riley Southwest. He got injured while there and had to make a career change. He was hired by Nadel & Gussman, where he worked for forty-two years in Osage County.

Wayne and Sondra raised their six children in the Hominy area. Wayne gave his heart to Jesus in 1984, which was a major life change for him. Wayne excepted the call to ministry, and started preaching wherever he could, including prisons, full gospel businessmen’s groups, and home Bible Studies. Wayne and Sondra were very active in ministry in many churches. He was always supporting the senior pastor as the assistant. In 2006, Wayne became the Senior Pastor at Antioch Christian Fellowship. He pastored there for fifteen years.

Wayne loved music and could play all kinds of instruments, including the guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, harmonica and the cajon music box. The whole family is very musical and when they all got together you knew music would be part of the gathering. Wayne loved his toys – old cars, tractors, heavy equipment, welders, and many other toys. He loved spending time with his kids and grandkids. His favorite dessert was Ice Cream. Wayne was a very active member of the American Legion.

Wayne went to be with Jesus on Monday, April 8, 2024. He will be incredibly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Wayne Brown is survived by his wife of 49 years, Sondra Brown; four boys James (Elizabeth) Brown, Zach (Emily) Brown, John (Seana) Brown, and Joe (April) Brown; two girls Jennifer (David) Casey and Christal (D J) Whited; sixteen grandchildren; one brother Ben (Betty) Brown; one sister Darlene (Bob) Woolery; numerous nieces and nephews.
