Members of the American Legion Post 75, where Brown once served as commander, also held a memorial event. Current commander Donald Christy described his friend as "a stand-up guy" and "a regular man's kind of man."
Brown "loved his country and loved the military," Christy continued. "He will greatly be missed by us out here."
A regular fixture at veteran's events throughout the community, Kevin Brown hosted Veteran's Day and Memorial Day services in Mineral Wells in recent years.
As of the Index's deadline Tuesday, the DA had not responded to requests for comment.
