Louis
On the evening of Thursday, September 12, 2019, Louis (Louie) Danial Brower, Jr. loving husband and father passed away at the age of 71 years and 10 months of age.
Louie was born on November 2, 1947 in Okmulgee, Oklahoma to L. D. and Mildred Powell Brower. He graduated from Marlow High School in Marlow, Oklahoma in 1966. Louie was what is referred to as a jack-of-all trades and as he would modestly say, master of none. He was a master automobile mechanic and loved working on vintage automobiles and trucks, all the way from rebuilding antiques to the engine work. He was a sign-painter, factory worker at Halliburton's. He was a store manager for Walmart for seven and a half years in various stores across the state of Oklahoma, the last being in Marlow, Oklahoma. For the past 33 years he worked in the funeral industry, 23 years as employee and the past 10 years as part owner of Strode Funeral Home in Stillwater. For the past year, he was employed at Walmart in Cushing. Louie was one to stay busy and worked until his passing. He was a Sergeant First Class in the Oklahoma National Guard, serving as Mess Sergeant for almost 13 years. He was an avid gardener and loved to do landscape work. His biggest and brightest hobby was his love for collecting Aladdin Kerosene lamps. He bought his first from the estate of a man he knew many years ago growing up. He told his wife, with the purchase of the second one, that he would get no more than 12. He ended up with over 225 lamps, all proudly displayed around his house. He has given many to friends and family as well. He could tell you anything that you might ever want to know about Aladdin lamps. He got his best friend Jim interested in the lamps and they collected together. Louie was a singer, loved country music, but his favorite was gospel music and telling the stories of the Gospel of Jesus.
On December 8, 1967 he married Cloye (Reid) Brower of Duncan, Oklahoma. Together they raised two beautiful children: son, Louis Danial Brower, III and daughter Andrea Lea Brower.
He is survived by his wife of 51 years of the home; son L .D. (Danny) Brower and wife LaDonna of Pawnee, Oklahoma; daughter Andrea (Brower) Cull and husband Joe of Stillwater, Oklahoma; eight grandchildren, Kiersten (Brower) Houser and husband Blake of Stillwater, Oklahoma; James Brower of Stillwater, Sean Brower of Salina, Oklahoma, Brighid Brower of Salina and Chelsea (Dillin) Brower of Stillwater, Oklahoma: Shai-Lea (Brower) Kinnamon and husband Cole of Edmond, Oklahoma, Dawson Bastion and Corban Bastion both of Stillwater. Oklahoma. He is survived by two beautiful great-granddaughters, Gracie Houser and Emillia (Emi) Kinnamon. Also he is survived by two brothers, Robert Brower of Kerrville, Texas and Paul Brower and wife Lynda of Tahlequah, Oklahoma, several nieces, cousins and extended family.
Louie was a man of very strong faith and was known for his friendliness and gracious smile. He was very giving, caring and loved singing in church more than anything. Being greatly loved and surrounded by love, Louis was known for his giving of love.
A celebration of his life will be Wednesday, September. 18, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the Cimarron Valley Church, 901 North Sadler Road in Perkins, Oklahoma with Reverend Paul Dawson officiating.
Burial will follow in the Perkins Cemetery.

My thoughts are with Louie’s family. It is so painful thing to lose someone, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and promises to remove it forever, Isaiah 25:8 “And he will swallow up death forever…” He also promised to wake up all our loved ones, in the memorial tombs, from death (Isaiah 26:19). What joy it will be to see our loved ones again and to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16). I  hope these words give all of you comfort.

I remember the Brower family when they attended the First Church of the Nazarene. A wonderful, loving family and had some good times with them. Then I got reacquainted with Louie when he was with Strode Funeral Home. So sorry to hear of his passing. He will be greatly missed.
