It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our father Jim Brown. Jim had an amazing spirit and was a great supporter of the Abbotsford Community. He created and was the proprietor of Alpha Imaging, a successful printing company where clients became friends. Jim was predeceased by his loving wife, Sharon Brown (nee: Poyntz-1999); his mother, Ann Barnard (nee; Platnick-2008); brother, Randy Barnard (Aug. 2012); father, James Albert Brown (Nov. 2012). Jim is survived by his sisters, Alva Popowich ( Halifax), Lois Kearney ( Winnipeg), Shirley Hyslop ( Saltair) and Heather Grant (Kenora); his five children, Kevin Brown of Aldergrove (Brenda), James D.J. Brown of Coquitlam, Traci de Pape of Prince George (Jeff), Tania de Pape of Langley (Glenn); Lynn MacKinnon of Maple Ridge (Mike); his 9 grandchildren; one great grandchild, who all lovingly referred to him as "Grumpy"; many nieces and nephews, along with numerous friends and extended family. Jim was loved by all who met him and he will leave a huge void in our lives. His memories, smile and humor will linger on. We love you!
