It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert ‘Bob’ Brown. Bob was born on February 28, 1958 in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec to Roy Brown and Iva Brown nee Convery.  He was the only brother along with 4 wonderful sisters.

After high school graduation he moved to British Columbia and started his career in mining. He worked at Afton, Bull Moose, and Nickel Plate mines before moving to Big Lake to work at Mount Polley mine, eventually becoming a Foreman. He was a valued and hard-working member of these teams.

Bob’s passions in life were hunting and fishing. This is where he felt most content. Annual fishing trips with his best friends Donny, Bruce and others brought him so much joy. He will always be remembered as a kind and gentle giant. His calm demeanour and easy-going attitude made everyone around him feel at ease.

Bob is predeceased by his parents, Roy and Iva. He is survived by his son Ryan (Kate), daughter Chelsea (Brian) and granddaughters Leighton and Taylor, his sisters Carolyn (Sam), Sharon (Tony), Shelley and Gail (Warren) among many other family and friends.

The family would like to extend thanks to the caring staff at Ridgeview Lodge where Bob spent the last years of his life. There will be a small private gathering with family and friends on June 4th, 2023.

    My sincere condolences to Sharon, Caroline, Shelly and Gail for the loss of their Brother Robert.
    Way back at A.D. Carmichael. I’d drop by on the way to “pick him up” for the walk to school, many moons ago.
    We both Graduated NHS, and after that, parted ways..
    Thought about man a time, but never was able to track him down.
    Many fond memories!!
    My deepest condolences to the entire Family.

    My deepest condolences to your family. I worked many years with Bob at Mount Polley. He was one of my supervisors in the late 90’s. He was a wonderful man with a heart of gold. I’m a better man for having known him.
