It is with great sadness the family of the late Peter Brown announces his passing on November 25th, 2019 in Fort McMurray, Alberta.

Peter was a wonderful man who enjoyed life. He enjoyed making others laugh or telling a joke to whoever would listen. Bringing a smile to another person's face would make his day. He was a happy go lucky, easy going man who will be immensely missed by all who knew him.

Leaving to mourn with a lifetime of wonderful memories spouse Yvonne Coady, son Lavi Brown, sister Dawn Jollimore, brother Paul Brown, niece Caeli Jollimore, nephews Brian and Peter Jollimore, Devin Brown, stepson Justin Hiscock plus a large circle of extended family and friends.

Peter was predeceased by his parents Donna and Reddy(Clarence) Brown.

A celebration of life will take place in Fort McMurray at a date to be announced later this week.

  1. Sad to hear the loss of a Sapper and Combat Diver, Peter Brown. He was affectionately known in the Army by the nickname “Rubber Man” owing to his physical dexterity and toughness. Remembered as a superb soldier, always taking care of buddies and a valuable member of the team. I had the privilege of serving with Peter in 22 Field Squadron, both in the Field Troop and Combat Dive Section. There was no day in which you would not find a cheerful smile on Peter’s face and his positive demeanour. Well liked and loved by his comrades in arms. Sapper & Combat Diver “Rubber Man” Peter Brown will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
    Rest in Peace Peter, your duty is honourable done.
