James Jimmy Brown

April 14, 1940 - July 18, 2012


James Hall Brown (Jimmy Brown)
It is with overwhelming sadness that we share the news of the death of our Father, Brother, uncle and friend. Jimmy Brown.
He was born In Spittalfield Perth Scotland April 14th 1940 and died peacefully at home July 18th 2012. Jim was predeceased by his parents, James Brown and Elizabeth (Betty) Brown and his eldest son Jim Brown.
He will be sadly missed by his family; wife Iness Brown, daughter Rhonda Brown and son Greg Brown. His twin brother Hendry, brother Ted (Judy), sister Betha Coleman, sister Christine (Jim) and Jack Ayer; his long time childhood friend who has been with him like a true brother.
As well as his five beautiful grand-daughters, Heather, Krista, Alyssa, Stefanie and Little Heather, seven great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews and beloved friend Sandy who was his best friend and companion.
Jim enjoyed the company of his friends at the Elks in Duncan, his friends at the AA Alano Club and Duncan Manor where his spent his last years. Jim will be remembered by his laughter by all who knew him and had met him.
Jimmy loved driving the highways of BC as a long haul truck driver where he met many people and loved the freedom of the open road. As at his request his ashes will be spread on the highways he spent much of his life on.
At his request there will be no service. In lieu of flowers we ask that you make a donation to the Food Bank as Jim liked to help others in need and he would feel honored with this choice.
We Love you Jimmy Brown

From: Wade Bergman
Relation: Nephew

I won’t ever forget your hearty laughter at our family gatherings when I was a kid.

I’m fortunate to have gotten to know you better when I was in my twenties and you would come and visit me for coffee at my work.

I moved away for 10 years and lost touch, but I I’m happy we crossed paths when I was passing through Duncan last summer and we got to visit.

Rest In Peace, Uncle Jimmy.

I hope that you can be reunited with your son (Jimmy) and with Granny and Grandpa for a new start.
