Brian Dewayne Keown, 50, of Ooltewah, Tennessee, passed away on Wednesday, December 29, 2021.
Brian was a barefoot outdoor enthusiast who loved life. He loved animals (especially his fur babies), fishing, hunting and artifact hunting.
He always had a smile on his face. Brian loved to make people laugh and was always the first one to cheer on the underdog. He was the keeper of secrets and was loyal to the end.
Brian was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Lon E. and Grace Keown, maternal grandparents, Estelle and Vess Chadwick and nephew, Eli Keown.
Survivors include his parents, Lonnie R and Carolyn Sue Keown, son, Tyler Brian Keown, siblings, Sherrie (James) Hobby, Lonnie Alan (Michelle) Keown, Kimberly (Roger) Stevens, Shane (Delores) Keown, best friend, Gina Tipton Ottinger, several nieces and nephews, and his fur babies, Cyrus and Buddy Love.
Until the day we are all reunited…
“I LOVE YA”.
