Robert Kaven Brick
MEMPHIS – Robert Kaven Brick, of Memphis, Tenn. died March 6, 2021, with family by his side. He was 44.
Kaven was born December 28, 1976. He never forgave his mother for having him so close to Christmas; it messed with his birthday presents. He grew up in Memphis and worked in the auto industry until his chronic illness sidelined him. Kaven loved fishing, boating, golf and football. Thanks to his grandfather and Uncle Bill, he was an avid Mississippi State fan.
Visitation was held Wednesday, March 10, in the Gardiner Room at Seven Oaks Funeral Home from noon until 2 p.m. Services followed at 2 p.m. in the Henry Chapel of Seven Oaks with Wilson Horrell officiating. Burial was in the Coffeeville City Cemetery.
Kaven leaves his wife, Melanie McCasland Brick; two daughters, Paige and Madeline; his parents, Robin and Robert Miller, and David and Linda Stewart; and a wealth of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who loved him dearly. He was his friends’ favorite wing-man, his daughters’ favorite Daddy and his mother’s heart. We will miss his phone calls, his infectious smile and his “I Love You.”
Kaven was preceded in death by his father, William H. (Bill) Brick; his grandparents, Robert and Billie Rotenberry, Dallas and Eloise Stewart, Alice and Bill Burdette, and Doris Miller.
