<div itemprop="description">BROWN, Philip Harold - With much sadness, we announce the passing of Philip Harold Brown (PH) in Brantford, Ontario on Monday, January 23, 2017. Phil was born in Bonavista, Newfoundland on April 15, 1921, the son of Harold and Minnie Brown. He had many stories of growing up in Bonavista with his sisters, Millicent (Mrs. Ralph Russell) and Evelyn (Mrs. Paul Fundarek, deceased). Although he lived in Halifax for most of his life, Phil was first and foremost a “Newfie” from “God’s Country”. <br>During the war, Phil served in the Royal Air Force and while in Halifax, he met Mary (nee Mary Rozee), his wife of 73 years. They lived happily in Halifax with their children, Heather (Mrs. Ken Spriggs, Ancaster, Ontario) and Sandy (Mrs. Ron Wellings, Simcoe, Ontario). <br>Phil will be deeply missed by his family. He was a great Dad, always ready to do whatever or taxi wherever. His grandchildren, Kelly Spriggs (Ancaster, Ontario), Anne McLauchlin (Brantford, Ontario), Heather (Mrs. Steve Dambrosi, Tampa, Florida) and Alison (Mrs. Hugo Espinosa, Columbia, South Carolina) and great grandchildren, Meagan and Kaitlin McLauchlin (Brantford, Ontario) have many fond memories of times spent with Grampy, his many stories and jokes. <br>Phil worked with the Prudential Insurance Company for over 30 years where he met and made many friends along the way. He always seemed to meet someone wherever he was and loved to stop and chat. <br>An avid fisherman, Phil loved his yearly trip to Newfoundland. Although he enjoyed many fishing spots in Nova Scotia, the trout in Trinity Pond were always the “pinkest” and the best. <br>Phil and Mary moved to Brantford, Ontario in 2012 to be closer to family. Funeral arrangements are through Dodsworth and Brown Funeral Home, Ancaster, Ontario. A funeral service is planned for Friday, February 3, 2017 at 2:30 p.m. with Inurnment at White Chapel Memorial Gardens. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or charity of choice. <br> <br></div>
