Services were held on Wednesday, Feb. 15, in Oasis Southwest Baptist Church with Rev. Bradley Spears officiating. Burial followed in Resthaven Cemetery in Quitaque with arrangements by Cox Funeral Home of Amarillo.
Roger was born Sept. 27, 1962, in Childress to Roger Sr. and Bertha Brown. He was raised in Turkey before moving to Amarillo during his childhood, where he graduated from Caprock High School in 1980. He later attended classes at Amarillo College as well as West Texas State University, earning his associates degree in business and accounting. Roger worked as a carpenter for many years before working for the prison and eventually settling at Pantex, where he worked for more than 15 years.
Roger married Misty Pulliam on Aug. 7, 1999, in Amarillo. Together, they enjoyed taking many family vacations, especially to the mountains. He was a loving man and spent the majority of his time outdoors, hunting, fishing and shooting with family. He began his passion of hunting at a young age, spending countless hours alongside his father watching and learning. These outdoor moments are something he passed down to his own children, spending memorable time at their family farm in Quitaque. His family and friends would describe him as being ornery and sarcastic and even nicknamed him “Bear” at a young age, a title that will always be remembered by others.
Survivors include his wife, Misty Brown of Amarillo; his parents, Bertha and Roger Brown Sr. of Amarillo; five children, Brandie Brown of Amarillo, Joshua Brown of Amarillo, Gary Arthur of Waco, Kenana Smart of Amarillo and Heather Brown of Amarillo; two brothers, Brett Brown and wife Teresa of Amarillo and Danny Brown and wife Shelby of Amarillo; six grandchildren, Jason, MacKenzie and Kadence Brown of Panhandle, Kady, Logan and Gastyn; and his parents-in-law, Jack and Shirley Pulliam.
