BROWN: James A. (Jim) Brown finished his life's journey on December 5, 2009. Jim was born in Winnipeg on May 21, 1922 and was the eldest son of George and Stella Brown. Jim was predeceased by his parents, wife Laura (nee Fry) and brother Norman. After Jim's schooling in Winnipeg, he joined the MTS and RCAF. The RCAF took him to Britain until the mid-forties. After WWII, Jim returned to Manitoba and continued his career with the MTS. The MTS placed Jim in Brandon, Flin Flon, Selkirk, Gladstone and back to Brandon in '58. After 41 years of service with the MTS, Jim retired in 1982. Jim enjoyed life with his family and friends. He loved fun, laughter, sports, travel, games, music and never backed down from a challenge. He was a proud Masonic member and a drummer with the Shriners. For health reasons, Jim moved into the Hillcrest Personal Care Home. Many family members and friends came by to visit him there and also joined in on his May 21st "sing-song popsicle birthday parties". David and Bernice thank all who shared in their parent's lives and gave ongoing friendship and support. A special thank you to the caring staff at the Hillcrest Personal Care Home. Surviving are son David, daughter Bernice, granddaughter Tara (Dan); brother Ted (Anne); nieces, nephews, cousins and numerous friends.
