James "Jim" Edward Brown
It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of James "Jim" Edward Brown, formerly of Lincoln, NB, on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at the Veteran’s Health Unit in Fredericton surrounded by his loving family. He was 93. Born at Lincoln, NB on June 30, 1925, he was a son of the late Norman Lester Brown and the late Agnes Nan (Graham) Brown.
Jim was a veteran of W.W.II and proudly served his country in the Royal Canadian Navy. Jim worked for D.N.D for 40 plus years which included many years as a Heavy Equipment Mechanic and as a Supervisor.
He was a faithful member of the United Church of Canada (Wesley United Church, Lincoln, NB) and held the office of Church Elder for many years. Jim was a Life member of the R.C.L. Branch No.4, Fredericton and was a 70 plus years member of the L.O.L and L.O.B.A.
Jim loved his family dearly and leaves behind three cherished daughters, Elaine L. Campbell (Paul) of Lincoln, NB, Sharon D. Chase (Haldon) of Cornhill, NB and Kathleen D. Brown of Lincoln, NB. Jim was so very proud of his four grandsons, Bryan Campbell (Cara) of Penniac, NB, Corey Chase (Ashley) of Cornhill, NB, Ian Campbell of Riverview, NB and Luke Chase (Cora) of Cornhill, NB. Jim’s face would simply light up at the mention of his great-grandchildren, Charles Campbell of Riverview, NB, Karsyn Chase and Adeline Chase both of Cornhill, NB and a soon to be baby boy Campbell. Jim’s two surviving siblings, Ralph Brown (Carolyn) of Fredericton, NB and Mary Wilson (late James) of Nashwaaksis, NB will miss their beloved brother. Jim also leaves behind many extended family who were an important part of his life and held a special place in his heart. Aside from his parents and wife, Dora E. (Wasson) Brown (2017), a sister Patricia E. Asherson also predeceased him.
The family will receive condolences at Bishop’s Funeral Home, 540 Woodstock Road, Fredericton on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 beginning at 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM followed by a R.C.L Branch No.4 tribute and then a L.O.L – L.O.B.A. tribute. A service celebrating the life of Jim Brown will be held from Bishop’s Funeral Home Chapel beginning at 2:00 PM with Rev. Brian MacDonald officiating. Jim’s four grandsons will proudly serve as Honorary Pallbearers. Interment will be held later at the Lower Lincoln Cemetery where he will rest beside the love of his life, Dora Brown whom he missed so much since her passing. For those who wish to remember Jim by way of a memorial contribution, the family suggests donating to the Lower Lincoln Cemetery Fund or the Veteran’s Health Unit, Fredericton.
