Obituary

Brown, Alvin George

Alvin George Brown passed away at the Rocky Mountain House Health Center on October 26, 2017 after a short battle with cancer.

Alvin was born on August 28, 1932 in Limerick, Saskatchewan. Alvin’s family moved to Rocky Mountain House in 1939 where they lived and farmed with his family east of Rocky. In 1956, he married Joyce Winslow of Ponoka and they lived in Rocky for a few years until they bought their farm on the Taimi Road. Together they lived and farmed in the Rocky area until they retired.

Alvin enjoyed all things outdoors. He hauled oil and water to Drayton Valley and later he hauled livestock for over 30 years. He particularly loved his team of percheron horses and watching his sports teams on T.V. He loved to build a fire and sit and tend it for hours

Alvin is survived by his loving wife Joyce Brown, sons Bill (Arlene), John (Linda); daughters Hazel of Edmonton, Karen (Garry); grandchildren Jeremy (Amanda), Lisa (David), Sarah, Emily and great granddaughter Jordyn and his brother Allan Brown of Tumbler Ridge, B.C

Alvin was predeceased by his mother Edna Brown, sisters Adella Moorehead, Evelyn Felepchuk and brother William Brown.

A Memorial Service in Alvin’s memory will be held at the Dovercourt Hall on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 1:00 P.M. Cremation entrusted to the Rocky Mountain Crematorium.
