It is with a very heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of James Allen Brown. A gentle soul, a devoted husband, a loving stepfather and grandfather, a committed member of his community - the First Presbyterian Church, Lions Club and St. James Masonic Lodge - a grower of all things beautiful, a lover of animals, a patient fisherman. James (Jimmy, Papa, Charlie) will be missed by many who will share the memory of his hearty laugh and youthful grin. James passed away peacefully early Saturday morning at The Ottawa Hospital with family by his side.

James was a caring and dedicated family man; husband to Verna, stepfather to Judy (Holmer), Wayne (Sue) and Wendy. He was sadly predeceased by both Brenda and her partner Brad. He was grandfather to Stefanie (Ron), Andrew, Hannah, Alanna, Grant, Edward and Rena and great grandfather to Alyssa, Elizabeth, Nicholas, and Madeline. He leaves behind his brothers Duane (Susan), Larry (Shirley, recently passed), Donald (Mary Jane), David (Theresa), Gerald (Marilyn, recently passed). His sister, Carol, left us too soon as well. He was the son of the late Lorne and Maida Brown and spent many years in the loving care of Aunt Molly. He will also be missed by his nieces and nephews.

Visitation will take place at the Irvine Memorial Chapel at Roselawn Memorial Gardens, 2451 County Road 15, Maitland on Thursday, October 22 from 10 am until 4 pm.

A funeral in honour and celebration of Jimmy's life will take place in the Roselawn Chapel on Friday, October 23rd at 11 am with interment to follow. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, attendance at the indoor service will be limited to approximately 50 guests and safety precautions will in effect.

Dear Verna and family,

We're so sorry for your sad loss. Please accept our deepest sympathy.
I remember Jim from the times I visited with him at family events like Nellie's 90th birthday bash. As well I always enjoyed going to his hardware store and getting his input on my latest problem with whatever project was giving me some challenges. He was always helpful, friendly, and genuinely interested in what I asked him about. We know you will miss him very much.
We trust that the many happy memories you have of Jim will help to bring you some comfort during this sad time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time of loss.
All the best.
Bernie and Chris Boesveld

Dear Verna and Family:
Please accept our condolences on the passing of Jim. It was a pleasure to know him, we enjoyed visiting with him at Home Depot and he was always most helpful. The Brockville Lions Club has lost another fine member.
