In Celebration of

Patterson Brown

April 26, 1942 -  January 26, 2023

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my beloved father Patterson Carr Brown on Thursday, January 26, 2023 at Dorothy Ley Hospice, Etobicoke

Survived by his son Ben Brown. He is survived by his brother Bill Brown (Ginette) Ottawa, Sisters: Dorothy Gosselin (North Bay), Linda Thody (London), Ellen Scott [King] (London), Wilma Smith [Gordon] (Rockwood), Lanie (Elaine) Elliott [Bob] (Amaranth) and his many cherished and much loved nieces, nephews, great- nieces and great- nephews and cousins.

He is predeceased by his brother-in-law’s Garry Thody and George Gosselin, father William Brown, mother Mary Brown Clowater and step-father Eugene (Chub) Clowater

Pat will forever be remembered as a loving, caring, and selfless man. His great wit and many stories will live on forever in our family lore. Pat touched countless lives and will be sorely missed by the many people he has left behind.

Pat was born on April 26, 1942 in Buffalo, NY and moved to Boiestown NB at the age of 2 following the sudden death of his dear father William Brown. Moving to Ontario at a young age, Pat lived the last many years of his life in Mississauga.

After retiring from The Ford Motor Company of Brampton my Dad and I were able to create wonderful memories going to ball diamonds all over North America and watching the many sports that he loved on TV especially his Toronto Blues Jays, Buffalo Sabres and of course Jeopardy. He also could be found quite often at the slots and Woodbine Horse races.

Visitation will take place on Thursday, February 2 , 2023 at the Turner & Porter "Peel" Chapel, 2180 Hurontario St., Mississauga (Hwy 10 N. of Q.E.W) from 1-3 & 6-8 p.m.

Many thanks to the health care team for the wonderful care my Dad received while in hospice and I ask that in lieu of flowers that donations be made to Dorothy Ley Hospice, 220 Sherway Dr., Etobicoke -

The uncle we love remains with us
For love itself lives on

Because a loved one's gone.

When Pat was in Edmonton with Ford Barb and I were lucky enough to spend time with him. His quick wit and funny stories were always on display making those visits a highlight for both of us.
