John Albert Brown

November 29, 1943 — November 30, 2023

John Albert Brown, 80, of Kokomo, Indiana, passed away on Thursday, November 30, 2023, in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was born on November 29, 1943, in Tipton, Indiana. John was a beloved husband, father, and grandfather.

John was an avid, lifelong fisherman who took every opportunity to bait a hook and fish. He found joy in spending Saturday mornings garage sale shopping with his brother, Rich. However, his greatest joy was spending time with his children.

John is survived by his son, Max Brown, and wife Jalena from Noblesville, Indiana, daughter Michelle Bady and husband Dantay from Kokomo, Indiana, brother Rich Brown from Tipton, Indiana and sister Harriett Charles from Bedford, Indiana. He is also survived by his first wife, Carolyn Brown from Atlanta, Indiana, and seven grandchildren. John was preceded in death by his second wife, Nancy, and his son, Alex Brown, from Lebanon, Indiana.

John was a lifelong learner who valued education. He attended Tipton High School and went on to earn a Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Ph.D. in Animal Nutrition from Purdue University. His dedication to his field led him to a successful career, which required him and his family to relocate to Texas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and finally back to his home state of Indiana. John concluded his career at Hubbard in Shipshewana.

A memorial service celebrating John’s life will be held at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, December 9 at Young-Nichols Funeral Home.  Visitation will start at 10:00 a.m. that morning.  John will be buried by his family in Fairview Cemetery, Tipton at a later date.

John will be deeply missed by all who knew him.  Memorial donations in John’s honor should be made to Riley Children’s Foundation, PO Box 3356, Indianapolis, Indiana,  46206.
