Grant “Red” Brown

In Memorial

June 30, 1925 – Nov 4, 2011
A fun loving, caring man passed away peacefully, after a long struggle. Grant (Red), born in New Brunswick, was a long-time resident of Pitt Meadows. He was a hardworking man, WWII veteran, and later drove a cement truck for Lafarge Concrete. During his time in Pitt Meadows he volunteered many years with the Fire Department. When he retired in 1987, he gave more time to his community, hours to the Pitt Meadows Museum, Heritage Society, and to any neighbour or friend that needed a helping hand. In 1995 he was honoured as Pitt Meadow’s Citizen of the Year. He leaves to mourn his wife, Ellen, son Ted (Sandy), daughter Barbara (Cliff), many grandchildren and great grandchildren. At his request, no service, he would rather have all that knew him to enjoy a good laugh with a friend or love one, or help someone in need. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude for all those that helped Dad stay at home, Veterans Affairs, the wonderful Team from Ridge Meadows Home Health, Red Cross, and mostly to Mom.

  4. I was sorry to hear of Red’s passing. I first met him over 50 years ago when I was just a kid driving gravel truck and I would bump into him at the Coquitlam Lafarge gravel pit. Years later we would be neighbours down the street from one another.My kids all grew up knowing him as “Farmer Brown”, from all the years he hayed the fields behind our house. He always had a smile,a kind word or a story to tell to everyone he met. My condolences to the family——I’m sure he will be missed.
    Bob Galer.
