Russell K. "Russ" Brown

Brown, Russell K., age 69, of Dayton passed away suddenly Wednesday, November 17, 2021. He is preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth R. and Marcia Jean Brown. He will be deeply missed by his devoted wife of 37 years, Linda Brown (Kirby); his only daughter Courtney Sites; two grandsons, Calvin Russell Sites and Marshall Davidson Sites; his twin brother Kenneth R. Brown Jr. (Gail) of Middletown, Delaware, loving sisters Sherrie (Steve) Waddell of Bellbrook and Sandy (Bob) Keffer of Dayton; and numerous extended family members, friends, and colleagues.

He was a graduate of Fairmont East High School and the University of Dayton, a member of the Flyer Faithful and a member of the Lambda Chi fraternity on campus.

He worked for more than 20 years at NCR Systemedia and later at Esko Artwork as a Credit and Collections Manager where he retired in 2013.

A devout Catholic from birth, Russ was a member of Incarnation parish for 30 years where he was a Mass Coordinator, Parish Council member, and counted money with his wife Linda.

He will be remembered fondly for his love of all things Christmas, his superstitions about his teams (Bengals, Buckeyes, Flyers), dancing with his daughter to Bruce Springsteen, enjoying a good Scotch Old Fashioned, making dinner and packing lunches for his family, playing cars, catch, and hide & seek with his grandsons, and especially for his fairness, faith, and love of country.

The family will receive family and friends Monday, November 22nd from 4:00-7:00 PM at The Westbrock Funeral Home, 5980 Bigger Road, Kettering, Ohio. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00am Tuesday, November 23rd at St. Mary’s of the Assumption in Springboro followed by burial at Calvary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Washington Township Fire Dept. (8320 McEwen Rd Dayton, OH 45458) as they were so helpful to Russ and our family in our time of need.
