William Thomas (Tommy) Brown, 61, Adair Co., KY (1961-2022)

William Thomas "Tommy" Brown of Elk Horn passed away on Friday, June 24, 2022, at his home. He was 61 years old.

Funeral Mass is scheduled for 11amET on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, at St. Bernard Catholic Church, in Clementsville, with Father George Otuma officiating. Burial will follow in Gum Lick Cemetery, with military honors conducted by the Casey County Honor Guard.

Tommy was born February 14, 1961, in Adair County, son of the late William Rollin and Mary Arlene Wethington Brown. He was a retired truck driver for Wolford and Wethington. Tommy spent three years in the Army National Guard. In younger years, he attended the Catholic church, but in recent years, Tommy attended a Baptist church.

Tommy could make anyone smile. He would give the shirt off his back and would do anything he could for anyone. He loved his family dearly.

He is survived by his son, Thomas Matthew (and Katie) Brown, of Lebanon; his daughters, Christy (and Jimmy) Spence, of Inez, and Julie Burke, of Prestonsburg; his step-son, Charles Perry, of Campbellsville; his brothers, William Dean Brown, Richard Eugene Brown, Micheal Lee Brown, and Donald Glenn Brown; his sisters, Sharlene Becker, Beverly Gail Kuhn, Darlene Burton, Melinda Sue Burke, Marsha Kay Brown, Deborah Louise Evans, and Bridgett Nicole Rucker; and his grandchildren, Jackson, Tabor, Kadia, Daniel, Micheal, Christina, AraBella, Kylie, Sarah, Carson, and Jasmine.

Along with his parents, Tommy is preceded in death by his brothers, Ronald Lynn Brown, James Steven Brown, Mark Anthony Brown, Wilbur Ray Brown, and Danny Wethington; and his sisters, Mary Alene Hayes and Carolyn Mae Brown.

Tommy's arrangements are entrusted to McKinney-Brown Funeral Home. An online guestbook is available at
