Christopher BROWN

CHRISTOPHER NIGEL BROWN. August 13, 1960 – March 6, 2014. On March 6th, 2014 our dear Chris passed away from cancer which he courageously fought right to the end. He was born in Huddersfield, England and came to Canada in May 1967 with his family. He worked at Clark Trucking for 30 years and will be sorely missed by all those that had the privilege of working with him. Pre-deceased by his father Reginald, Chris is survived by his ever loving wife and best friend Coleen, mother Olive, mother and father-in-law Marg and Doug, children who he admired and respected Matthew, Chelsey (Mike), Nicole (Kyle), Mikayla (Kyle), his three grandchildren Addy, Evan and Logan, sister Janet (Keith), brother Rob, sister in laws Diana (Stewart), Simone, cousins, nieces and nephews and many good friends who were always there for him and will cherish his memory for ever in Canada and England. Chris was an exceptional craftsman who could turn his hand to anything woodwork, metalwork, machinery, there was never a challenge too big for him. His boat “The Hangover” is a legacy to Chris’s wonderful workmanship. He was a wonderful father, loving husband and grandpa who was the happiest when he was with his family nearby. He loved to entertain, travel to the sunshine and spend time at his pride and joy their home together on the lake. The family would like to thank Dr. Lee, all the nurses at RCH, CGH, Abbotsford Cancer Clinic, the home care staff and many others for the warm and compassionate care that they gave to Chris. He will be greatly missed by those he loved and by those who loved him. Please join us for a Celebration of Life on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 1pm at The Best Western Rainbow Inn on Lickman Road, Chilliwack.
