      Calvin Wayne Brown

      C. Wayne Brown, 73 of Denton, TX passed away peacefully on Monday, December 17, 2018 in Denton.

      He was born August 30, 1945 in Seymour, TX, the first of two sons of J. E. and Alma Leona Brown, both of whom preceded him in death.

      Wayne graduated from Seymour High School and held an Associate Degree in Law Enforcement from NCTC or North TX Council of Governments. He started his law enforcement training when he joined the U. S. Army in 1964 as a Military Policeman, where he achieved the rank of Sargent. He served his country in Fort Richie, Maryland, Fort Sill, OK, and Okinawa, Japan during the Vietnam War. Upon leaving the military, he accepted a position as a Denton Police Officer, which he held for many years. From there, he became a Deputy Sheriff in Denton County. From Denton, he decided to head back to his hometown of Seymour to accept the position of Chief Deputy of Baylor County. He was able to achieve his lifelong dream in 1990 when he was appointed as Sheriff of his beloved county.

      During his early years, Wayne worked with his father on his farm, was a cowboy, herding cattle on the Waggoner Ranch, and was an avid hunter. In the late 1960s, he was a camera man and TV producer for a TV station in Wichita Falls, TX. He was an artist, using oil to express himself, especially fond of painting Native Americans such as Sitting Bull. Through his close association with the Kiowa Tribe, he was inducted as an honorary member into the Tribe, for which he was very proud.

      Wayne is survived by his two loving daughters, Melisa Brown of Denton and Christina Rippentrop, son-in-law Wade Rippentrop, brother Ron Brown and his wife Kay of Wynne, AR, as well as their son, his nephew, Danny and his niece Jennifer Joy Ringwood and her husband of CA.

      He was especially proud of his grandchildren,Senior Airman Justin Rippentrop and wife Asiana-USAF-Anchorage, AK, Pvt Carson Rippentrop-US Army-Fort Eustis, VA, and Madelyn Rippentrop of Ponder. He has many surviving cousins and aunts and uncles whom he loved and cherished very much.

      Funeral services will be held at Mulkey-Bowles Montgomery Funeral Home Chapel, 705 N. Locust St, Denton, TX on Friday December 21, 2018 at 10:00 a.m., Interment will be later in Seymour, TX, next to his beloved mother and father.

      The family would like to thank Cottonwood Nursing Home staff and THPC (Total Hospice and Palliative Care) for the loving care they provided during a difficult time.
