Brownie was born in Independence on November 10, 1951 to Harold Anderson Brown Sr and Eva Ruth (Smith). He started school in independence until the family moved to Cherryvale where he graduated. After school he attended trade schools and began working for various employers, such as Funks Manufacturing, Carter Automotive, Keith Construction, Jet Valve, and he has been with the city of Coffeyville for the past 18 years. Brownie met Ellen Louise Gifford in Cherryvale and the couple was married in 1970, she preceded him in death in 2010. Later that year he met Brenda Dumler and they married that year. Brownie loved the outdoors, fishing, raising puppies to be service dogs, and working on anything that had a motor. He was a genuine man, always honest, happy, positive, funny, true, and kind. When he would meet a stranger they didn't just meet him they experienced him. Brownie was a Christian. He loved the Lord and enjoyed attending church and Bible study.
