Obituary for Brown, Bob

Robert Charles Brown passed away on Friday, March 26, 2021, at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital at the age of 78.

Bob shared 55 years as the loved husband and dance partner, of Wendy Brown, together they raised their family of Christopher, Michael (Kim), and Stacey (Mark). Bob was so proud to see his family grow with the additions of his grandchildren, Sarah, Raychel, Lauren, and Carter, as well as the extra gift of a great-grandson, Hunter.

The eleventh child in a family of twelve, Bob will be missed by his brothers Gerald and Ron (Diane). Bob is predeceased by his parents and nine siblings.

A committed father and a doting husband, Bob cherished his family above all else. Family trips up north to the cabin every summer, never missing the kid's outings and events, or pairing up for a golf game together at Widder were times Bob always looked forward to. A man who was known for his smile and full-body laughter, Bob was a steamfitter by trade with Union 663 in Sarnia, Bob was a dedicated worker who retired to spend more time with his family at the age of 61.

A service will take place at a later date at Trinity Anglican Church in Watford, the very location where Bob and Wendy took their wedding vows after a blind date brought the two together for their first dance.

Family and friends continue to remember Bob for his laughter, thoughtfulness, and love of family. Interment will take place at the Watford Cemetery following the service.

Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest, 519-786-4964. Please leave a memory or condolence online at
