BROWN, Harry Ben. August 16, 1930 –

February 6, 2013.

Harry Ben Brown was taken from his family suddenly on February 6, 2013, to be with our Lord. Harry is survived by his loving family, wife, Verna Jean (nee Kanigan); daughter Corinne, son Derek and daughter-in-law Rebecca; sisters Terry Beck, Iris Slater, Diane Oakley and Dolly Ashe and their families. Harry was born and raised in Abbotsford, BC and is pre-deceased by his father, Ben Brown and mother, Astrid Peters. Harry served in the Canadian Army and fought in the Korean War, leaving the military with an honorable discharge. Shortly thereafter, he returned to Keremeos, BC to marry his beloved, Verna.

Harry, being the hard-working family man and ambitious type, was involved in several business ventures throughout his life in BC, including the cities of Penticton, Kelowna and Port Coquitlam, finally settling back in his home town of Abbotsford to retire with Verna. Harry embraced life and loved to ski, golf and any other activities that involved his family. Harry was a thoughtful, loving and caring man, always there to lend a helping hand, expecting nothing in return. His spirit will live in all our hearts forever. We will miss him dearly. A private family service was held on Feb. 16, 2013.
