It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Skipper (Robert) Brown of Markham on September 5, 2019 at the age of 62 years with family at his side.
Robert was the dear brother of Deby (Ken) Flaherty, Don (Carol) Brown and Bonnie (Ken) Burgett. Loving Uncle to Daniel (Shelly) Flaherty and Erin (Shaun) Jones. Great Uncle of Sydney, Liam, Max, Piper, Samuel and Grace.
Robert was a resident of Participation House in Markham for 38 years and will be dearly missed by his Participation House family as well as his special friends that he became very close to over the years.
Robert was a kind and gentle soul who brought much happiness to his family and friends. The sound of his laughter brought joy to those who loved him.
He will be remembered as a gentleman who always reached out his hand to greet you and always remembered something about everyone he met, especially those that were special to him.
Robert is predeceased by his parents Buster and Noreen Brown and his brother in law Ken Flaherty.
The family would appreciate donations to Participation House in memory of Robert.
