BROWN, Philip Claude -
August 18, 1943 - September 13, 2023
After 80 years of a full life, Philip Brown died peacefully at home of complications from ALS, his beloved wife, Judith, by his side, and surrounded by friends and family on September 13, 2023.
The family is grateful to friends and caregivers for their warm support in these last months, especially Andrew, Brad and Tracy, Jen and Craig, Katherine, and Adam, Bolaji, Maura, Nicolette, and Raj.
Predeceased by his parents, Claude and Vivian; and his beloved first wife, Marilyn; he is forever remembered by his family – wife, Judith; sister, Gail Sleeman; brother-in-law, Mike Badyk (Natalie); and niece, Nicole; stepson, Owen (Sarah); stepdaughter, Erica (Guy); London daughter, Jen (Craig); grandsons, Isaac and Elliott; and nephew and niece, Geoff and Ginny.
Moreover, singing in the Canadian Welsh Singers/Cantorion Cymraeg Canada also led him to Judith, his wife of almost fifteen years. He could often be heard belting out popular songs alongside friends and family, and his booming voice was a favourite for readings as well as singing.
Phil was also deeply involved in his Church, initially as a Warden with St. James' Cathedral in Toronto, and again in London at St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral Church, as well as an active member of numerous committees. The family will be accepting condolences at a visitation scheduled for Friday, September 15, 2023, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. A Celebration of Life service will take place on Saturday, September 16th at 2:00 p.m., with a reception to follow.
