Obituary of Garth Brown

BROWN, Garth

Passed away peacefully on Friday, September 18, 2020 at Country Village Long Term Care Centre. Beloved husband of Beverley for 56 years. Loving Dad of Shelley Smith and husband Kevin and Susan Brown. Proud Grandpa of Brad (Meagan) and Scott Smith. Dearest brother of Craig (late Cath), Raymond (Linda) and predeceased by Alan and Keith. Dear brother-in-law of Linda Queen-Cannon (late Jim), Paulette Taylor. He will also be remembered and missed by his many nieces and nephews. Garth retired with more than 32 years of service with Ford Motor Co, but his true passion was farming. He loved any time spent outdoors, including fishing, hunting and walking through his bush. He had many fond memories of growing up in his small town of Ruscom and his treasured lifelong relationships built there. He will be forever loved and missed. The family would like to thank the caring staff of Country Village Nursing Home, all of the doctors and nurses at Jeanne Mance Dialysis Unit and Crown Transportation for all of their care and support shown to Garth. In following Garth's wishes, cremation has taken place. A private family service will take place at Reid Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, 87 Maidstone Ave. E., Essex (519-776-4233). If desired, memorial donations made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation or Operation Smile Canada would be appreciated. Family and friends are invited to share their memories or make a donation online at
