John Brown Obituary

John Brown passed away on Wednesday, October 11, 2023 in Saskatoon, SK. At this time, there will be no Funeral Service. The family will have a private celebration of his life at a later date. John was born in Ottawa, ON into a military family that took them across Canada, the United States and Germany. After graduating from college in Ottawa, he moved to Calgary and ran the art department at the Calgary Sun. He then co-owned The Loft Bar & Grill. He was quite the adventurous guy which led him to Northern BC sharing in a gold mining operation, which included a run-in with a grizzly bear with his loyal friend Bandit. When he returned to Calgary, he started doing office moves including desk tops and server rooms. John was an avid sports fan and enjoyed participating in many fantasy league pools. He met and married his soul mate Sandie, the love of his life in 1995 at the family cottage on Indian Lake/Chaffey’s Lock, ON. He was her rock and greatest supporter. He moved to Biggar, SK in 2014 and enjoyed his new community immensely. John was predeceased by his parents, Brick & Dorothy Brown and brother in law, Don Isaac.
Left to mourn his wife Sandie, step daughters; Robyn (Ian), Samantha (Shane) & Paige (Huston); Grandchildren; Anson, Ryden, Savannah, Hunter, Zaylie, Hendrix; Sisters; Penny Isaac, Val Tuba & twin sister Wendie (Will) Loudon, and brother in law Steve Heimbecker (Line); Nieces and Nephews; Cindy (Steen), Robb (Leanne), Alisha (Tim), Willy, Crystal (Ian), Matt & Jeff; along with 7 great nieces, nephews as well as numerous friends. John had a heart of gold and a kind loving soul with a great sense of humor. He will be missed by all who knew him. His struggles are over, may he find the peace he so deserves. Rest easy and sleep sweet my love. You will remain forever in our hearts.
