Jimmie, as he was known by his family and friends was always serving others. He and his wife “Rosie” owned and operated the St. James Flag Store for over 15 years, having bought it from Bernard and Virginia Underwood. He was active in his community in many roles. He has served in the US Marines.  He became the American Legion Commander and served as Adjutant in the American Legion in Rolla.  He volunteered wherever needed in his community. He and his volunteers were instrumental in displaying flags in our community for Holidays and Flag Day. He would find people who needed firewood for the winter months and would contact Missouri S &T for men who would help cut and deliver the wood. When he found time to relax, he would love to go fishing and always talk about the big one that got away. He enjoyed watching the St Louis Blues and the St Louis Cardinals.

Services for Jimmie Brown will be performed by the American Legion Post 270 in the spring of 2022.
