Dakota Ray Brown

November 10, 1997 — November 15, 2022


Dakota R. Brown, 25, of Kansas City, MO, formerly of Lancaster, SC, passed away at his grandparents home in Sophia, NC on November 15, 2022.

He was born in Wisconsin in 1997. He is the son of Shane Brown and Dr. Christine Green. He attended several different schools over the years graduating from Park Hill High School in 2016. He finished all coursework and was allowed to take an entire semester off.

Dakota was employed by Jimmy John’s in various capacities and was an avid entrepreneur. He had many ideas for businesses and spent his last day laying out plans for new opportunities. His hobbies include fixing up old BMWs, glass blowing, and listening to music that spoke to him. He has an untamable free spirit and quick temper, but he would use it to defend a friend or family more often than turn it on them. His smile wasn’t seen often in photos but could light up the room.

He is survived by his parents; brothers, Alex (Gabby) and Todd Green; grandparents, Carl and Darlene Brown and Mary Lou Halchak; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He is preceeded in death by his cousin, Kayla Runte, and grandfather, Joseph Halchak.
