October 19, 1945 - June 22, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of William (Bill) Edward Brown on June 22, 2019 at Foothills Country Hospice in Okotoks at the age of 73 years. Born in Glasgow Scotland in 1945, and although Scotland held a special place for him, he lived in many places; India, Southern United States, Eastern Canada, finally settling in Calgary, Alberta in 1981. Bill loved a glass of red wine and a single malt scotch. He loved the theatre, music, golf, the mountains, good food and good friends. And more than anything he loved his family - wife and best friend, Rose-Anne (McLaren); daughters Stephanie (Daniel Yoshisaka) and Andrea (Shaun Mitchell); grandchildren Jack, Jet, Olive and Knox; sister Anne (Robert Shaw); sister-in-law Mary-Jane (Jim McDermott), and many nieces and nephews. Bill was predeceased by his parents Harry and Sarah Brown. Bill had a great sense of humour, we will miss his wit and that mischievous twinkle in his eye when he had a zinger to share. He had a love of his church community at Knox Presbyterian Church in Calgary, and was a long standing member as well as an active Elder, giving much of his time and talents. Bill and his family were fortunate to be supported through his diagnosis and cancer treatment, a journey that was enriched by the incredible care and support of Dr. Sean McFadden and Dr. Don Morris and the staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre. Thank you to all of the friends and family who have sent their love and support during this past year; it has been truly appreciated. In lieu of flowers, donations in Bill’s memory would be appreciated to Foothill Country Hospice. A Celebration of Bill’s Life will be held on Saturday, August 24th, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. at Knox Presbyterian Church (3704 - 37th Street SW), Calgary, AB. Reception to follow. Caring for the family is Lyle Reeves Funerals of High River (Craig Snodgrass) 403.652.4242.
