BROWN MichaelPosted: June 15th, 2013
May 26, 1975 – June 8, 2013 MICHAEL CRAIG WILLIAM BROWN, age 38, cherished son of Ken and Wendy Brown, passed away suddenly in an accident at his farm near Milk River on June 8, 2013.
Michael was born and raised in Milk River, AB. After high school he attended Lethbridge Community College and the University of Alberta before returning to the family farm to work alongside his grandfather, Harold Anderson, eventually taking over farm operations in 2007. Michael’s life revolved around faith, family, farming and friends. He was born with a curiosity to figure out how things worked and quickly became “Mr. Fix-It”. Near or far, he was the first call when something didn’t work and needed repairing. He was always available to lend a helping hand, even if it meant his own work had to wait. He valued the importance of community and was a great contributor to the town of Milk River. Michael was a friend to all, never passing up an opportunity to visit and find out how you were. People of all ages were drawn to his infectious smile and generous heart. He always made sure everyone was included and you couldn’t help leaving him without a big smile on your face. Michael was always happy to see you; he watched out for you, pulled you out of the ditch, and always made sure you were safely home. Mike’s heart was bigger than he was, and he had an extra special spot for his grandmother, Mama, and his nieces and nephews. Uncle Mike could always get the loudest squeals and biggest laughs. He always made sure Mama was taken care of, and that she knew how to work the remotes. There wasn’t anyone he met that didn’t become a friend. His passing leaves a hole in our hearts, but we know that we will be together again. Left to treasure his memory are his parents, Ken and Wendy Brown, his grandmother, Kathleen Anderson, and his siblings: Lori Brown, Aaron (Christine) Brown, Traci (Joshua) Sherwood (Taylor, Nathan, Andrew, Mason), Kathleen Brown, Peter (Kelly) Brown (Whitney), Chantelle (David Dudley) Brown, and Nola (James) Haynes (Scarlet). He was predeceased by his grandparents Harold Anderson and William and Zelda Brown. The Funeral Service will be held Friday, June 14, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, COUTTS, ALBERTA. Friends may meet the family prior to the service, from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. Interment in the Milk River, Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made to the Milk River Volunteer Fire Department.
