    Mr. Brown passed away on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 in Tyler.  He was born October 24, 1927 in Munday to the late O.V and Emma Manuel Brown, Sr. 

    Buddy graduated high school in Beeville, (A.C.

He also was the owner of Chandler Feed.

Memorials may be made to First United Methodist Church of Brownsboro, P.O. Box 154, Brownsboro 75756.
