Kirk Henry Brown, 81, of Iuka, MS, died Friday, May 17, 2019, at the North Mississippi Medical Center in Iuka. Kirk was a lifelong faithful and loyal man to Jesus, Church, family, and work. In his early years, after graduation from high school, he sacrificed his own wants to help provide for his sisters and brother, and later for his own family, working and providing a stable environment for his wife and three boys. He worked eight years at Genesco shoe factory and 32 years at Conalco aluminum plant. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, and also loved watching the New York Yankees play baseball and Ole Miss Rebels play football. Kirk played catcher for fastpitch softball and hit the longest ball on Jordan pasture, which went over the railroad tracks. His greatest thrill was watching his kids and grandkids play sports, thinking they were following in his footsteps. He loved farming, successfully raising cattle, pigs, chickens, and vegetables. Kirk served our country in the Army National Guard for eight years. He served on his church deacon committee, was a song leader, and Sunday school teacher. He was a member of the Iuka Baptist Church. Kirk was THE example to follow as a brother in Christ, husband of 57 years, Poppaw, and Dad, as well as being a good friend to many. Now he is walking the streets of gold with his Jesus and all of those who preceded him. We celebrate his life and know that we are all better because we have known him.
Survivors include a brother, Johnny Brown of Lewisburg, Tennessee.
