I grew up across the street from Mr. Brown and remember him fondly; he was a kind and gentle man. I used to look after their dog(s) when Mr. and Mrs. Brown went out of town. I also never walked by that long metal gate without stopping to give a pet to Charlie (I may have the name wrong, it has been many years!). I don't live in Chilliwack any longer, but that house will always be synonymous with the Browns. My condolences to Deleine and Dan.

Danny and Deleine. So very sorry for your loss. I had many great times being around your dad while working at Comet Garage. Always enjoyed chatting with him and having a few laughs. I was visiting my mom and dad a few months ago, went for a walk and saw your dad sitting out on the back porch. Had a very nice chat with him. Again, so sorry for your loss. Take care of one another.

Jerry and I go back a long time, 77 years. When my Dad was in business he had his truck repaired at Jerry's service garage at the corner of Victor and Yale road. I used to go there with him and Jerry always had time to talk to me.
Over the years since , our paths crossed at various community service events. Jerry always had service to community at the top of his list.
Joan and I will miss seeing and saying hello to him and his daughter as they had Sunday lunch at Southgate Restaurant .

Fond Memories will always remain.
