Keith Conniston (K.C.) Brown

October 31, 2021
Our dear father, Keith Conniston (K.C.) Brown passed away peacefully at the age of 90 on October 31, 2021 at Valleyhaven Retirement Community in Chilliwack B.C. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his daughters, Colleen Johnson (Dave) and Nancy Venhola (Randall), his grandchildren, Kelsey (Florian), Christina, Brett, Ty and Lauren and baby great-granddaughter, Louise.
Predeceased by his wife of 62 years, Claire Brown (nee Pariseau), his five brothers and one sister. Keith was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba June 20, 1931 to Elsie and Francis Brown and was the youngest of six children.
Keith joined the RCMP at the tender age of 19. He began his career in Whitehorse, Yukon where he met his wife Claire. They were immediately posted to Toronto, Ontario where their two daughters were born and raised. He served the remainder of his career there, retiring after 25 years as a Staff Sergeant. Dad and Mom moved out to B.C. in 1982 where he worked part-time for the Saanich Police. They loved Vancouver Island and enjoyed the mild climate, golfing and gardening. They relocated to Chilliwack, B.C. upon full retirement in 1992, to be closer to their daughters and grandkids. There they resided for the remainder of their lives together. We were fortunate to celebrate many family birthdays, holiday festivities and events together.
Dad was a quiet, humble and devoted family man. Visits to his brothers & sister across Canada were definitely some of the highlights of his life. Dad and Mom celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on a truly memorable cruise to Alaska with their extended family. Several trips to Vegas, Mexico and Hawaii were also enjoyed over the years.
The deteriorating health and eventual passing of his wife Claire on October 18, 2018 were very difficult for Dad. While he faced many health challenges over the past few years himself, the love and support of his daughters and their families sustained him. Dad has missed his wife dearly and has long awaited his return to her. Our deepest wish, Dad, is that you may find the repose and peace for which you have so longed. We are so very fortunate to have beautiful memories of you to treasure. You will be so very missed and loved forever.
We wish to thank Dr. Ross, the lovely staff of The Birchwood Retirement Home and Valley haven for your kind and compassionate care of our Dad over the years. There will not be a service at this time. Please support the Chilliwack Hospice Society, if desired, by donation in Keith’s name.Obituary
