Clifton (Cliff) Alexander Browne

November 19, 1931 - September 1, 2018


November 19, 1931 – September 1, 2018
Passed away after a brief illness in Cowichan District Hospital with his loved ones at his side.

Cliff was born in Penticton, BC and after living in Vernon and Pioneer Mine, he came to the Chemainus area. He worked on different dairy farms before finding work in the Chemainus Sawmill, becoming #1 Grader and then Planer Foreman.

After 47 years with MacMillan Bloedel, he retired in 1994. At this time, he took up woodworking and produced many gifts and pieces for his family. He also loved

just puttering around the yard and home and reading. He always had a book or two on the go! Dad had a great love for birds that dropped by the feeders as well as many household and family pets.

He and Janet spent years taking RV trips throughout BC, 2 trips to the Yukon as well as camping all over Vancouver Island.

Cliff is survived by his wife of 66 years, Janet, his best friend and the love of his life. Dad had many loves, but his home and family were his greatest. As his children we always knew he loved us and was so proud of us. He leaves his children, Lyn (Brian), Susan, Nancy (Rob), Patrick (Jennette). Also, his beloved grandchildren, Kevin (Sarah), Jennifer (Brenden), Rob (Janie), Clifton (Michelle), Karen, Becky (Megan). Great- grandchildren Gus, Piper, Rhiley, Darren and Bethany, and numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. He was predeceased by his brother Dennis, son-in-law Ed, grandson Eric, sister-in-law Beulah, brother-in-law Alan, and nephew Greg.

Our thanks to the nurses and staff in ICU at Cowichan District Hospital, and Dr Archdekin for the excellent care and compassion Dad received. No service by request. There will be a gathering at the family home that will be announced at a later date.
