In Celebration of

Stuart Livingstone Brown

June 25, 1925 -  October 20, 2018


25 June 1925 – 20 October 2018

After a protracted illness, Stuart died in his sleep on 20 October 2018. He is survived by his wife of 72 years, Anna Doreen (Lambert), his three children, John, Michael (Diane), and Suzanne Hawkins, his brother Ron (Val), sisters-in-law Adrienne (Milne), Audrey (McCready) and Edna (Brown), brothers-in-law Norm and Bud Lambert, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, nephews, nieces, great nephews, and great nieces.

Stu served his country in many roles. During World War 2, he served in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands with the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment, and post-war he served until 1977 with the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps and the Canadian Forces Medical Services. Stu also volunteered with the St John Ambulance for a number of years. Thanks to his military service, he and his family were fortunate to have had the opportunity to live in many parts of Canada, including both coasts, in three countries, and on two continents.

Stu also served as the deputy-Mayor and Commissioner of Police for Annapolis Royal NS. He was a lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Legion, having held many positions in Port Royal Branch 21 and the Nova Scotia/Nunavut Command.

Stu’s family would like to thank the staff and nurses of Ottawa 2 East at the Perley Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre, particularly André and Tatiana, his day nurses, for the thoughtful and compassionate way they looked after Stuart. We would also like to thank Brianna for keeping us well informed on his status and any concerns. Finally, we would like to thank Comfort Keepers’ Christina for faithfully visiting and cheering him up twice a week for the past three years.

There will be no visitation. Interment will take place at 10:00 am on Saturday 27 October 2018, at the National Military Cemetery, Beechwood Cemetery, 280 Beechwood Ave, Ottawa. Guests are asked to assemble for 9:30 am at the National Memorial Centre, after which we will be escorted to the gravesite. A celebration of his life will take place at Mike and Diane’s home starting at 1:00 pm on 27 October.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the CNIB or St Johns Ambulance would be appreciated.
