Vernon Leroy Brown

Aug 3, 1945 May 21, 2024

Vernon Le'Roy Brown passed away on May 21, 2024, in St. George, Utah, surrounded by his family in his home. He was 78 years old. He was born on August 3, 1945, in Sullivan, Indiana, Sullivan County.

Vern was an amazing husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle, and friend. A deeply devoted man of faith, he served as a pastor for 47 years, tirelessly ministering to others until his final days. Vern and his beloved wife, Eunice, were married on August 5, 1966, in Phoenix, AZ, and shared 57 years of marriage. She was his love, partner, confidant, and best friend.

His greatest joy was helping others find a personal and authentic relationship with Jesus. Vern's generous and compassionate spirit touched many lives, as he and his wife selflessly gave their time, talents, and resources to those in need.

He is survived by his wife Eunice, his daughter & son-in-law Shauna & Marcus Zimmer, his son and daughter-in-law Dion & Michelle Brown, his grandchildren Josiah, Micaiah, Caleb, and Jacob, as well as his sister & brother-in-law Shelly & Doug Koerner. He was preceded in death by his parents, R.W. & Edith Brown, his brothers Bill, Tom, Paul, and his sister Minnie.

Vern loved to garden. It brought him peace and joy, allowing him to connect with nature and find solace in its beauty.
