American Veteran 08

Pastor Kenneth Anthony Brown, Sr.

September 8, 1957 ~ June 4, 2021 (age 63)


Dr. Kenneth Anthony Brown, Sr. was born on September 8, 1957, to the late Deacon Richard Joseph Brown, Sr. and the late Prophetess Elizabeth Wells Brown in Savanna, Georgia.

Dr. Kenneth A. Brown, Sr. was educated at Hershel V Jenkins High School in Savannah, GA.  He continued his education serving in the United States Marine Corp.  He was deployed to duty stations in California, Japan, Arkansas, and Florida.

While in the marines, he came to know the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  He retired from the military in 1991, and with a thirst for learning more about God, he earned Bachelor of Science, Masters, and Doctorate degrees in Theology.

Dr. Kenneth Brown’s final rotation in the United States Marines landed him in Jacksonville, Florida, where he founded the Tabernacle of True Worshippers, now known as the Spirit of Truth Deliverance Ministries.  He was well known in the community, working with many local pastors and different outreach programs.  He was affectionately called Pastor by his church members.

He was dedicated and faithful to doing God’s work tirelessly; despite his health issues.  He never stopped serving the Lord and living an exemplary life for us to follow; he persevered until the end. A favorite response Pastor Kenny would give when asked, how are you doing?  would be “I’m blessed and highly favored in Jesus’ name.”

On Friday, morning June 4, 2021, the creator of all stopped by Memorial Hospital Jacksonville, Florida to relocate Dr. Kenneth Anthony Brown to his final tour of duty on this earth, promoting him to his heavenly home. With his wife standing by his side and holding his hand, he peacefully answered God’s call.

Dr. Brown was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Gregory Brown, Richard Brown Jr.; and a granddaughter, Katlyn Brown.  He leaves to cherish his memories and to celebrate his homegoing:  wife, Deborah D. Simmons-Brown; sons, Deacon Kenneth A. Brown Jr., Montrell D. Brown, and Arthur Hamilton; daughter, Kenyada Pearson (Danny); two sisters, Betty Ancrum (Ronnie), and Karen Smalls (Pastor Timothy); one brother, Michael Brown (Marilyn); eleven grandchildren, Kenny III, Tenia, Davon, Cameron, Chandler, Montrell Jr., Montavius, Montez, Marcell, Danny and Kennedi; sisters-in-law, Birdie Mae Brown, Dorothy Williams (Amos), Cicely Simmons Carroll (Brandon), and Ciyddra Simmons; brothers-in-law, Joseph Simmons, III (Grace), James Simmons (Cindi), Jeffery Simmons (Veronica), Joshua Simmons (Stephanie) and Jay Simmons; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relative and friends.  The following people held a special place in Ken’s heart, Craig Brown, Lakeisha Brown, Robert Collins, Antonio King, Aunt Mary, Pamela Singleton and, Mother Yates.
