Allen Bryant (AB) Brown

Allen Bryant Brown (AB) son of Jesse Moore Brown and Nancy Johnson Brown, loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather went to be with his Lord on Sunday, June 28, 2020.  He was born on December 4, 1941 in Barren County on the farm where he lived his entire life.  He passed due to complications of Parkinson’s Disease.

Allen Bryant was a lifelong farmer. He retired in 2011 after 23 years of driving a bus in Barren County.  He loved all the children he met on his bus routes, but he especially loved his preschoolers and special needs children.   Allen Bryant was a proud graduate of the 1959 class of Hiseville High School.  Throughout his life he always strived to serve others whether at church or in the community. Allen Bryant was a member of Salem Baptist Church where he served as a deacon for 19 years, he also served on the Board of Directors for Caverna Hospital for 20 plus years, 19 of which he was the Chairman of the Board.  He was a member of the Allen Lodge #24 F&AM.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Zona Jean Matthews Brown.  Two of his children survive, Sammy Brown (Laura) and Jeanelle McGuire (Jeff).  AB was very proud of his four grandsons and their families: David Alan Brown (Kaitlyn), Andrew Brown, Trenton McGuire (fiancé Megan Smith) and Bryton McGuire (Ashlyn).  Two twinkles in his eyes were his great grand babies, Adley Grace McGuire, and Bailey Clark Brown.  Other survivors include his brother, Jesse Reide Brown; brother-in-law Bobby Matthews(Jo); our special family from Wisconsin, Roger Leischer (Chris), Dan Leischer (Jackie), Carissa Miescher and sons Cameron and Caden;  several nieces and nephews; many cousins, friends and lots of lives that Allen Bryant touched in his 78 years.
