BROWN, Vincent, Major (Ret’d), RCAF Logistics – Supply
Vince passed peacefully in hospital with his loving family by his side on Saturday, February 24, 2019, at the age of 81. Beloved husband of Myrna (née Schindler). Dear father of Brad (Joanne), Rick (Rosemary), Mark (Lisa) and Caroline (Dylan). Cherished grandfather of Erin (Dan), Mike, Brandon, Hayley, Jase, Jackson and Sophie; and great- grandfather to Emily and Sara. Vince was born in Rexton, NB on September 2, 1937.
Although his 36-year career in the Canadian Armed Forces took him to many parts of Canada, he remained fiercely proud of his Maritime roots.
Vince was the last leader of the RCAF Supply Club, an informal association of like-minded logisticians who used to meet at the Orleans Legion until their group was rolled into the CFLA National Capital Region Chapter in 2014.
Friends are invited to join the family for Mass on Friday, March 1, 2019, at Good Shepherd Parish (3092 Innes Road), at 11 a.m. A time of refreshment and fellowship will follow in the Church Hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ottawa Heart Institute where he was cared for in his final days.
