BROWN DarrelPosted: October 26th, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Darrel Cameron Brown of Pincher Creek, Alberta who succumbed to illness on October 22, 2015 at the age of 86 years. Hard working hands shall toil no more.
Darrel was born on March 31, 1929 in Lethbridge, Alberta to proud parents, George & Florence Brown. He was raised to be meticulous and inquisitive with a devoted work ethic. His skill at autobody repair was second to none and he firmly stood for what he believed to be just. He was further blessed with a loving wife and family whom he cherished.
Darrel found pleasure in the solitude of the outdoors camping by the fire, mountain biking the trails and laughing and toasting the good health of his friends. He loved to debate politics and show his collection of antique cars, travel to Montana with his lovely wife, Carol, and celebrate those precious moments in life so many of us take for granted. He lived well knowing trials and triumphs but most of all, he dearly touched our hearts as to leave a loving and cherished memory.
He is survived by his loving wife, Carol Marie Brown of Pincher Creek; his children, Pam (Bryan Coyle) Brown of Lethbridge, Judy (Duane) Guzzi of Lethbridge and Cameron (Bruce) Brown of Nanaimo; his step-son, Kevin Clinton of Pincher Creek; his grandchildren, Marissa and Nikolaos; his brother, Glenn (Sue) Brown of Washington; numerous nieces and nephews as well as his extended family and many dear friends.
He was predeceased by his parents, George and Florence Brown; his son, Dean Brown; his siblings, Gordon, Winston, J.R., and Rae Issac; and his faithful canine companion, Mandy.
With respect for Darrel’s wishes, no funeral services will be held. Donations in memory may be directed towards the Pincher Creek S.P.C.A. or Humane Society. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
