Obituary for Leigh Roy Brown

Leigh Roy Brown, 73, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at his home surrounded by family. Born in Middlesboro, KY, he was the son of the late Roy G. and Lena Brown. In high school, he was a multisport athlete and held State titles in field and track. After graduating from Middlesboro High School, he attended Eastern Kentucky University. After college, he joined his family’s businesses which included Tri-State Supply, Inc., Cash and Carry Furniture, and The Carpet Barn.

Leigh Roy was proud of his six years of service in the Army Reserves. He was a Southern Baptist and will be remembered for his unwavering faith. He will also be remembered as an avid UK Basketball fan, his love of Norris Lake and fishing, but more than anything, spending time with his family.

He is survived by his best friend and sister, Judith Ann Brown (brother-in-law, Hollis Bush); loving daughters: Kelly Cupp (Joseph) and Stacy Sauer (Donald); beloved grandchildren: Adam and John Cupp, Luke and Avery Sauer. Leigh Roy had so many close friends. The family would like to say a special thank you to Jerry Good, Linda Givens, and Dr. Neil Barry, III.

A Celebration of Life will be held 3:30 p.m., Sunday, June 10, 2018 at Shumate Funeral Home Chapel. Music will be provided by Victor Alexander. Pallbearers will be Joseph Cupp, Donald Sauer, Adam Cupp, John Cupp, Victor Alexander III, Don Cupp, and Luke Sauer. Honorary pallbearers will be Hollis Bush, Jerry Good, Joey Iovine, Jim W. Brown, and Bisel MacWilliams. Interment will follow in Green Hills Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends 2 to 3:30 p.m., Sunday, June 10, 2018 at Shumate Funeral Home Chapel.

Shumate Funeral Home is entrusted with all arrangements.
