Obituary for Retired Army Colonel Stanley M. Brown

Retired Army Colonel Stanley M. Brown, age 82 of Oklahoma City, formerly of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma passed away surrounded by his family on 27 February 2019. He was born on 5 July 1936 and attended Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics.
He was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the Field Artillery and served in South Vietnam. He held various other positions over a 28 year career including serving as Team Chief of Team One aboard the National Emergency Airborne Command Post at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska. The NEACP aircraft was designed for continuity of government during a crisis and was the U.S. President’s go-to aircraft in the event of a nuclear emergency. He also served as the United States Army Inspector General for the state of New York. His duties included impartial inspections, assessments, and investigations. During his career he was awarded the Defense Superior Service Medal, Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medals (2OLC), and the Joint Service Commendation Medal to name a few. He was also awarded the Chief of Staff Identification Badge for his duties involving the Joint Chiefs and National Command Authority.
He was preceded in death by two sons: Jon Anthony Motes and Jordan Shane Motes. He is survived by his wife Carole, ten children, eighteen grandchildren, and nine great grandchildren. Six of his children/grandchildren are either veterans or currently serving on active duty.
Stan was a staunch conservative and enjoyed political discussions. He was usually seen wearing either his Vietnam Veteran or Trump MAGA hat. He was known for his ability to fix almost anything. His favorite leisure activity was fishing, usually at Lake Sahoma-Pretty Water in Sapulpa. Most of his grandchildren have fond memories of fishing with Papa Stan. He has left behind many military friends who he shared a lifetime with.
The family would like to thank the staff of Baptist Medical Center for their care and kindness. Additionally, the family thanks McNeil’s Funeral Service for the great care they’ve provided.
Funeral services with full military honors will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, Stan would want you to vote Republican. However, donations are always appreciated by the Wounded Warrior Project.
