BROWN, Grant (Red)

June 30, 1925 ~ Nov 4, 2011

A fun loving, caring man passed away peacefully, after a long struggle. Grant (Red), born in New Brunswick, was a long-time resident of Pitt Meadows. He was a hardworking man, WWII veteran, and later drove a cement truck for Lafarge Concrete. During his time in Pitt Meadows he volunteered many years with the Fire Department. When he retired in 1987, he gave more time to his community, hours to the Pitt Meadows Museum, Heritage Society, and to any neighbour or friend that needed a helping hand. In 1995 he was honoured as Pitt Meadow’s Citizen of the Year. He leaves to mourn his wife, Ellen, son Ted (Sandy), daughter Barbara (Cliff), many grandchildren and great grandchildren. At his request, no service, he would rather have all that knew him to enjoy a good laugh with a friend or loved one, or help someone in need. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude for all those that helped Dad stay at home, Veterans Affairs, the wonderful Team from Ridge Meadows Home Health, Red Cross, and mostly to Mom.
