  1. I find myself looking in his direction….,his spot….,as I pass through Haney downtown….,seeing him sleep….,or his high handed HELLO. I Miss You.! “Downtown Gordie Brown”.

  2. It’s amazing the things you realize when you lose someone: You get mad at yourself for not saying the things you could’ve said a million times, you take for granted the days spent doing nothing when you could have been with them. Anyone can be taken at any time in our lives, but we always wait until they’re gone to say the things we never had the courage to say before.
    Love you dear Cousin. I Will remember you always and your title as ” Downtown Gordie Brown “.

  3. R.I.P. Gordie Brown . I would like to send my condolence to Gordies family and share some thing special with them in memory of Gordie. Iam a long time friend of Gordies for about 30 years. There were countless hours I would sit down with Gordie and talk about our lives. As hard was to share some things with him we both were able to cry many tears listening to each others past history. Gordie was a very proud father of his children and spoke extremely high of how proud he was past and future of his sons acomplushments , is daughters beauty and how he missed them dearly. He found it extremely hard to choose his words when we spoke of my 23 yrs old son who took his own life . There were many times when he just wanted to help, hug me, and let me know that he will be there any time I wanted him to listen. He was such a caring, loving and nurturing man. Gordie is going to be sadly missed by many. Never to be forgotten. R.I.P. my dear friend. ‘TILL WE MEET AGAIN’
    U have your wings now. Soar high and proud and I know that u will be watching over all that knew and loved u.
