  1. Mrs. Brown & family,
    Mr. Brown was such a help when we were planning the Centennial Baseball Game for Irricana’s 100th Birthday celebration in 2013. His memories of the local baseball league, the game and players during his playing days made our day more special.
    “Hold on to your memories, and let them guide you during this time of sadness”
    Kind regards,
    Glen, Janice, Ryan, Darren & Cameron Culp
    Irricana, AB

  2. Desiree(Pat) Evang :

    I was deeply saddened to read of Mr. Brown passing. My sincerest condolences to Mrs. Brown, Lynn, Dawn and their families. As I age (drat) I often think back through the years. One of my fondest memories was catching a ride to school with Mr. Brown and the girls. He was always chatting and smiling. Such a nice smile. My prayer for each of the family is when they have a memory moment; to reflect on it, rejoice in it and find peace from it. Love you Mrs. B.

  3. We were blessed to have Ken and Viola attending Greenfield Baptist Church for many years. His smile and genuine friendliness were remembered and of course his artistic talent was admired.
    May God give Viola, his daughters and extended family the peace and comfort they need as they grieve the loss of Ken.

    Sharon Lake
