It is with heavy hearts that the family of Richard Stanley Brown announce his passing at the Kiwanis Nursing Home on November 15, 2023 at the age of 94.
Born on August 7, 1929 in Parleeville, NB; he was the son of the late Edward and Mary Anne (Bishop) Brown.
Dick was a hard-working man, callused hands from years of labor. He began his working career driving pulp trucks, before moving on to Dexter’s Construction as a general laborer and then the provincial Bridge crew. He was never idle. Spring of the year he could be found ploughing, harrowing, rowing it up to get the garden ready.
He will fondly be remembered driving his 1955 Oliver Tractor up the road and every summer he hauled hay to his nephew’s place. Dick spent most of his life hunting and loved to brook fish. He was a proud honorary Grampy to Tyler and Thomas Raymond and will be missed by all those whose lives he touched, especially many nieces and nephews and extended family members.
He was the last surviving member of his immediate family.
Along with his parents, he is predeceased by his brothers: Bert, Stewart, Ted, Arthur, William, Reg and Victor and by his sisters: Edith Hall, Mary Raymond, Olive Nelson, Alice Brown and Eileen Brown.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Wallace Funeral Home, 34 Sunnyside Drive, Sussex, NB (506-433-1176) from where a visitation will take place on Sunday, November 19 from 12-2pm. A celebration of Dick’s life will be immediately following in the Wallace Community Chapel.
The interment will take place in Church of the Ascension Cemetery in Apohaqui.
