We have some sad news for you this morning. Our good friend Joe Brown has passed away.
Joe died early this morning at the age of 78. He was born in Wichita Falls and attended Midwestern State University. Joe became farm editor of the paper in the 1950's and by 1964 started work here at KFDX, all while running his peach orchard. He'd been with KFDX for almost 50 years, before his retirement in 2011. Many of you probably remember waking up early with Joe on RFD-3.
Joe and his beloved wife Joan had two sons, Charles and Michael.
Joe loved his family, his dogs, his peach orchard and all of you for watching him all these years.
Funeral arrangements are as follows:
Visitation is at Owens and Brumley Thursday, October 3rd from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
The memorial service is at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church Friday, October 4th at 1 p.m.
All of us here at KFDX send our condolences to his family. We're going to miss you Joe.
