George Edwin Brown
December 24, 1926 – July 30, 2017
George Edwin Brown beloved husband of the Late Mary Lou Brown, passed away peacefully on July 30, 2017 at the age of 90 years.
George is the oldest son of Frank and Georgena and was born in Macleod in 1926. He, along with his older sister Gloria and younger brother Bob, spent their earliest years in Nobleford and Standoff, later moving to the west coast, living at Powell River and New Westminister, BC. A final move brought the family back to the Prairies. George spent his late teens and early twenties farming and ranching until he met Mary Lou Noel who he married on August 20th, 1951. They were married for nearly 64 years before Mary Lou passed away in 2015. His career spanned a range of jobs including a number of years working with the CPR and operating the BA and UFA bulk agencies. He had a long tenure driving the school bus to Pearce and Spring Point, two important communities from his youth. His true passion of course has always been horses and most of his life was spent shoeing, training and showing horses. He was an avid roper and earned the nickname “No Time” early on. Horses were an everyday part of his life until finally selling the last part of his herd in 2015 at the youthful age of 88. George is survived by sons Mitch (Cindy), George (Lee), Norman, and Harley (Cindy) along with grandchildren Lindsay, Tyler, McCauley, Tess, Randy and Jamie and great grandchildren Zachary, Zoe and Eli. He is predeceased by Mary Lou two years ago and their son Corey in 2006.
A Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Cross Catholic Church (2613-3rd Avenue, Fort Macleod) on Friday, August 4, 2017 at 2:00pm with Reverend Angelo De Costa presiding.
