BROWN, George Douglas   -  September 6, 1929 - August 29, 2022.

George passed away peacefully surrounded by his children and, as he wished, on his beloved Glenrothes Farm where he was born almost 93 years ago.

Partner in life for 65 years with his dearly loved wife Audrey who predeceased him in 2017.

Loved and admired father to Nancy Brown Andison and husband Michael and to Douglas Brown and wife Yvonne.

Adored grandfather to Julian (Emily) and Jordan (Annie) Brown and to Nicholas and Patrick Andison and great grandfather to George Ernest Brown.

Cherished brother of Eunice Jewell and Lois McEachern and the late Norma Wright and Lorne Brown.

George attended school in Beaverton, Ontario where he and Audrey became high school sweethearts.

George and Audrey married in 1952 and moved to Pickering where George continued to teach school.

He retired from teaching in 1984 after a 35-year career, having built lifelong friendships with both fellow teachers and former students.

Always a community supporter, George volunteered throughout his life leading youth sports, activities, and clubs and as a board member or active participant in agricultural organizations, community life, and the church.

An exceptionally intelligent, well informed, kind, and friendly soul, George was a lifelong learner, a highly respected teacher, and well-regarded cattleman. 

Visitation: Monday September 5th, 1 pm to 4 pm and 7 pm to 9 pm, Beacan Presbyterian Church, Beaverton.

Service: Tuesday September 6th, 11 am, Beacan Presbyterian Church followed by interment at the Old Stone Church Cemetery, Beaverton.
