It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert Gerald Brown on January 12, 2020 at 70 years of age.

Robert was born on Aug 2, 1949 at the St. Boniface hospital in Winnipeg to Uldine and Robert Brown. He was the first born of four siblings all of whom he cared for very deeply. In Aug 12, 1972 he married the love of his life Susan Curtis. They would go on together to ride the roller coaster of life through all is ups and downs. He was a proud father of three children and loved nothing more than spending time with his grandchildren. Though Robert had several career’s during his lifetime his one true passion was working in sales. This makes sense since he truly enjoyed meeting and talking to new people almost as much as he loved to spend time socializing with his friends and family. He was a kind soul who liked nothing more than connecting with the people around him especially at the Lake.

Robert will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Susan Brown; his children Clinton Brown (Sandra Brown), Jason Brown (Jen Brown), Kevin Brown (Crystal Brown); his brothers/sister Doug Brown, Don Brown, and Cheryl Kendall; his grandchildren Cody Brown, Kassidy Brown, Maggie Brown, Liam Brown, Hunter Tayti, Alana Tayti, Tristan Tayti, Carlo Capostagno; nieces, nephews and friends. He is predeceased by his mother Uldine Francis Brown and father Robert Alf Brown.

A service has been scheduled for 2:00 pm on Friday, January 17 at Thomson “In the Park” Funeral Home located at 1291 McGillivary Boulevard with reception to follow.

Dear Susan, Jason, Clinton and Kevin:

To you and your families, we extend our most sincerest sympathies. All of you have been blessed with a beautiful husband, father and grandfather. He was a kind-hearted soul who would give a helping hand to anyone who needed it. He reminds us of his Father, who taught him to be the man he was.

Please forgive us. We are unable to be with you at the funeral. Dwight had surgery yesterday and I could not get the time off to come and see you. We were shocked by when Cheryl told me on Tuesday.

You are in our prayers and we trust that Bob will be having great conversation with his parents. May he be forever in your hearts, and your wonderful memories be on your minds.

All of us who know Bob will remember his nice smile and jovial attitude. May he rest in eternal peace.

May you all be comforted by your memories and that he is at peace and no longer suffering.

Sincerely and respectfully,

Carmelina, (Carm) and Dwight Kjartanson

I'm sad to share this, but it is a lovely obituary for a man who was well loved and will be greatly missed. Bob was a cheerful and compassionate man who truly cared for those around him. He treated my brothers and I like his other grandchildren despite us not being related by blood, and was the only grandfather I ever got to know. I'm so glad I was able to spend one last Christmas with him, and my thoughts are with those who will be at his service, as I won't be able to make it.

Gone way too soon, this is so heartbreaking. My heart is with all our family in Winnipeg and all the friends of my amazing Uncle. You always had a smile on your face and were so positive, loving and truly cared about others. I will absolutely miss seeing you on visits and will always have wonderful memories of you.
Rest in peace Uncle Bob ❤️

Moose..as we called him, mainly because of of his size (and the fact that we had two other Bob’s in our gang).
Always a kind and “gentle”man, who although he was 3 years older than me and at least a foot taller treated me as an equal.
What a wonderful friend,
I am left with terrific memories of our teenage years and I am proud to say he was my friend.
R.I.P buddy and I’ll miss all your Facebook posts.

This is truly a great loss. Bob was one of the most kind and generous persons we have had the privilege of meeting in our life. He will be missed around his beautiful campground area and cruising on his pontoon boat at Lake of the Woods with his family and friends. He was so proud. If we had to mention a couple characteristics about Bob, I would have to say that he had an amazing smile that could warm your heart and always had a way of making situations seem not so bad.

We are deeply saddened and our thoughts go out to Bob's family,
