Brown, James Ray "Daddy Ray"

Friday, June 22, 2018

James Ray “Daddy Ray” Brown, 84, of Fort Oglethorpe, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, June 21, 2018. He had lived in the North Georgia area for most of his life and was a member of Frawley Baptist Church. He was a Sgt. in the United States Army, having served during the Korean Conflict, and was employed with Standard–Coosa Thatcher for more than 35 years as the plant manager. He graduated from UGA in 1961 with his business degree and was obviously an avid Bulldog fan. He loved working in the yard, planting flowers and spending time with family and friends, but his true love was for His Lord and Savior. He was a loving and devoted brother, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, who will be truly missed by all that knew him.

He was preceded in death by his first wife, Betty Brown and second wife, Carolyn Collison Brown.

Survivors include his children, Jennifer and Al Copeland and Kimberly and Lebron Bowers; step-children, Cynthia Ann and Rick Williams, Gigi and Randy Dodd and Jimmy and Teresa Hughes; 13 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

Funeral services will be held at 12:30 p.m. Monday, June 25 in the Fort Oglethorpe Chapel, with Bro. Ken Wolfe and Bro. Luke Williams officiating. Burial will follow in the Chattanooga National Cemetery. The family will receive friends after 1 p.m. on Sunday and prior to the service on Monday at the funeral home.
