Jim was the eldest child of the late Percy and Mary (MacLean) Brown.
He was born in Glace Bay, N.S., Feb. 6, 1949, where he lived until he joined the military in 1966. He had a long distinguished career and served with honour in the Armour Corps for 35 years.
A devoted family man, Jim is survived by his wife and best friend of 41 years, Carol (Pugh) Brown and his two children, Rhonda Houghton (Andrew) of Swan Creek, N.B., and Kevin Brown (Debbie Tarrant) of Deep River, Ont.
First and foremost a family man, Jim found great joy in raising his children and watching his six grandchildren, Serena, Allistair, Rachel, Zachary, Ethan and Renae grow. Jim's love of family came from having a tightly knit family to grow up in.
