Peacefully, with his family at his side, Thomas Brown passed away on Monday, August 12, 2019 at the Portage District General Hospital at the age of 68 years.

Tom was born December 11, 1950 in Vancouver, BC. Tom attended his high school years in CFB Shilo, MB, where many close friends were made. He started his career with Simpson Sears in 1971 in Brandon, MB as a sales representative. In 1992, Tom and family moved to Portage the Prairie, where they ran the Sears Dealer store for 17 years.
Tom loved to be around family and friends. He enjoyed doing yard work and walking the dogs. He also enjoyed his time golfing with Ken, as they always had a great time out together. Tom’s personality and his kindness towards people will be missed by everyone that knew him.
Our family would like to thank Dr. M. Gray, Dr. Ross and all the medical staff who took such great care of Tom in the hospital. Everyone was so caring and helpful. We would also like to thank everyone that reached out to us with flowers, cards and food, it was very much appreciated.
