John Brown

On July 11, 2023, John Angus Brown peacefully passed away at the age of 73, being embraced by the arms of Jesus at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital. He was the beloved husband of Elaine (nee Vance) and a loving father to Karen Laur (Steve), Christopher (Angela), Elizabeth Fitch (Brandon), Katherine Schmidt (Stephen), and David Brown. John took great pride in being a grandfather to Jessica, Josh, Julia, Alyssa, Tori, Matthew, Noah, Samara, Gracie, and Zeke. Preceded in death by his parents Arthur Brown and Audrey Durrant, he will always be remembered with affection by his sister Kathryn Toole (Giff) and brother-in-law Gary Vance, as well as his nieces and nephews, Kevin, Shawn, Andrew, and Shelly. Above all, John’s family held immense significance to him. In addition to his family, he found joy in his passion for model railroading and his fascination with steam engines. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the dedicated nurses and doctors who provided unwavering care and compassion to John.

In his lifetime, John Brown fought valiantly, completed his race, and remained steadfast in his faith. As stated in 2 Timothy 4:7-8 NIV, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day-and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” These words symbolize his unwavering devotion and serve as a testament to his spiritual journey.
