Gale Brown, a long-time member of the Sardis and Clayton community passed away on January 31, 2024, in McAlester, OK at the age of 92. Born on September 10, 1931, in Kosoma, OK, he lived a fulfilling life marked by dedication to his family, land, and nation.
Gale proudly served in the Navy from September 1948 to September 1952. He married his beloved wife, Bonnie, on February 8, 1958 and they shared 65 years together. Gale shaped young minds as a school teacher at Clayton Schools for 19 years and always had lots of humorous stories to tell about his students. He worked his land as a cattle rancher until his 91st year, embracing both the challenges and rewards that came with the profession. Gale was preceded in death by his wife: Bonnie; his parents: Kyle and Allie Brown; brothers: Byron and Rick Brown; and sister: Kay Black.
Gale is survived by his children: Kevin Brown, Karen Moon, Twilla Brown, Cynthia Golden, and Cathy Kirkpatrick; his brother: Danny Brown; as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
Those who knew Gale remember him as a man of resilience, integrity, and unyielding love for his family-a true embodiment of a life well lived. Gale was not a fan of long, drawn-out funeral services and just wanted it said that he was a "pretty good ole boy".
Services were entrusted with Serenity Funeral Service and Cremations of Antlers, OK.
