Marty W. Brown

Marty W. Brown, 59, of Upper Sandusky and formerly of Bucyrus, died unexpectedly on Saturday, February 11, 2023 at Wyandot Memorial Hospital.


Marty was born July 9, 1963 in Portsmouth, Ohio to the late Cecil and Elizabeth (Knell) Brown. Following the death of his mother, he moved to the area and attended Fairway School. Marty spent 30 plus years working at Waycraft and then worked at Angeline Industries. While at Angeline, he attended Can-Do Studios in Carey, where he learned arts and crafts. He took an interest in canvas painting and he loved making paper chains, which became gifts for friends and family.


Marty was a thoughtful individual who was happiest around others. Anytime spent with friends and family brought smiles and laughter to his face. He looked forward to any holiday, but come September, he was ready to start decorating for Christmas as it was his favorite, and he had plenty of paperchains to properly decorate. From an early age, he enjoyed listening to music. Anything with a beat got him moving and the day before he passed, he‘d attended a group dance where he had the best night just being with others and listening to the music. Food also made Marty happy. Whether enjoying a holiday turkey meal; his nephew, Danny’s biscuits or dinning out, Marty always got his fill. He looked forward to church on Sunday and was always eager to praise God with an “Amen”, and the music also kept him going back. One of Marty’s favorite treats were cherry tomatoes. He grew them and though he was a thoughtful guy, sometimes sharing with others was a struggle.


Marty is survived by siblings, Curly Brown, Betty Jo Henderson, Violet Clark and Mary Lynn Brown; many nieces and nephews, including Pam (Danny) Russell who was a caregiver and his biggest fan. In addition to his parents, Marty was preceded in death by many siblings.


Calling hours for Marty will be held from 5 – 7 pm Thursday, February 16 at Wise Funeral Service, 129 W. Warren St., Bucyrus, Ohio. He will then be transported to Kentucky where calling hours will be held from 1 – 2:30 pm Saturday, February 18 at Dickerson Funeral Home, 110 W. 2nd Street, Vanceburg, Kentucky. A graveside funeral will follow in Briary (Brown) Cemetery.


If desired, donations can be made payable to Angeline Industries and will be accepted through the funeral home. Expressions of sympathy can be shared on his tribute page.
