Obituary for James Edward Brown

January 19, 1957 - October 2, 2019

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of James (Jim) Edward Brown of Thompson Manitoba at the age of 62.

Jim worked at Vale/Inco over 30 years and retired last year. Jim completed his dream of adventuring Alaska with his camper after retirement. Jim’s retirement gift from his son, David James was NFL football tickets to his favorite team, Dallas Cowboys in Texas.

Jim told a young David James that he would love to receive NFL tickets when he retired. Over 10 years later, Jim was amazed his Son remembered. Jim was so excited in Texas he maxed out his data sending pictures to his friends and family throughout his trip. Ironically, Jim later complained about his phone bill when he returned home.

Jim’s favorite hobbies included camping at Wekusko falls seasonally, fishing, traveling, and football.

Jim was a beloved father to his son, David James, and a brother to his sister, Heather, and an uncle/great uncle to Heather’s son and his kids.

Please join us in a celebration of life at The Royal Canadian Legion on October 19, 2019 from 2 - 5 pm. Please wear your favorite football jersey when attending (optional).
