James Henry Brown

February 14, 1957 — January 9, 2024


James Henry Brown passed away suddenly at the age of 66 at his home in Bracebridge, Ontario. Born on February 14, 1957, to Mary Tingey (Ruttan) and Percy Brown, James was a simple man who lived life on his own terms. He was cherished by all who knew him and will be deeply missed.

James leaves behind a legacy through his surviving family members who were very dear to him. His sons James Percy Albert and Robert Brown will carry on their father's memory with love and pride. James was also blessed with grandchildren Rebekah and Jared who brought immense joy into his life.
