Obituary of Dennis Brown

Colonel (Ret’d) Dennis Brown




Dennis passed away peacefully with his wife Cynthia Brown of 31 years by his side. He was predeceased by his parents Harold G. and Geneva Brown, his sister Carol Strong, his aunt Lillian Zacharko and his father-in-law Andrew Schmidt.


Dennis will be missed by his sons; Keith (Clare) Brown, William (Kathryn) Brown, stepsons Jason (Shantelle) McGill and Michael (Melanie) McGill. He will be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Henry, Arthur, Hannah, Jordan, Robert, and Andrew. Also, will be remembered by his brothers-in-law; Douglas Strong, Edward Schmidt (Joanne), Steven Schmidt (Wendy), sister-in-law Jennifer (Wilfred) Mercer and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.


Dennis had a fulfilling 34-year career in the Canadian Armed Forces. He was an avid reader and especially enjoyed anything related to ancient archaeology.  He was always up for a car trip and managed a crossword puzzle or two every day. He was extremely proud of his sons and delighted in his role as Grampa Brown. He enjoyed the caring and respect of his extended family and liked having the benefit of extra grandsons.  His droll, but funny comments and his off beat sense of humor will leave a gaping hole in our midst. We will miss him.
