Alexander (Alec) R. M. Brown

Born April 26, 1944 in Glasgow, Scotland, died January 5, 2016 in Courtenay, BC after a short struggle with cancer, with his wife and daughter at his side.

Alec is survived by his wife Bel of 45 years. He is lovingly remembered by his daughter Katherine Stewart (Andrew) and adored granddaughter Madeleine of Victoria, BC; sister Elspeth Greer (Brian) of Summerstown, ON; brother David Brown (Donna) of St. John’s, NL; brother Iain Brown (Donna) of Williamstown, ON; eight nieces and nephews and four grandnieces and nephews from across Canada.

Alec was a long-time employee of Air Canada and lived in Montreal, Vancouver, PEI and Toronto before retiring to the Comox Valley in 2009. A kind, funny and generous man, he will be dearly missed.

The family will hold a reception for Alec at a later date at Sunnydale Golf Club, where Alec was a member.

To honour Alec’s memory, donations to the BCSPCA or the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

Special thanks to Dr. Johann Nel and the staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital for their compassionate care.
