BROWN Wilbur (Wib) Andrew In his 89th year, went to be with the Lord on June 28, 2004 in London, Ontario. He was reunited with his beloved wife, Fern (Gilhuly) only twelve days after her own death. Son of William E. and Alice (Smith) Brown, Wilbur was predeceased by siblings Mildred McNaughton, Ernie, Elmer and Ron Brown. Surviving him are siblings Vera (McNaughton) Marshall of Brockville, Florence Jeffrey (Arnprior), Edwin (Kemptville), Lois Baskin (Vernon, B.C,), Stanley (Smokey River, Alberta), Melvin (Spencerville), and Mabel (Ottawa). Wilbur served Canada during World War II on North Atlantic convoy duty to Britain as an officer on the sub-chaser, HMCS Lanark; after the war he was Lieutenant Commander and Supply Officer of HMCS Brunswicker Naval Base, Saint John, N.B. Retirement from the Navy, and business interests, brought him home to Ottawa for a decade, then to the Bahamas, and, in latter years, to London, Ontario. He never lost his sense of connection to Ottawa where he was born, raised and married, and especially to the Metropolitan Bible Church where his Christian faith took deep root in the 1930s. He is survived by daughters, Ruth (Jack) McLaughlin of Timmins and Diane (John) Atkinson of Vancouver; as well as daughter-in-law, Helena Brown of London, widow of son Kevin, tragically killed in 2001. The children of Diane and Kevin made Wilbur proud 'Papa' to six grandchildren, J.J., Dan and Rebecca Atkinson of Vancouver; Jordan, Jared and Joshua Brown of London. Friends and family may visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa, on Saturday, July 10 from 7-9 or Sunday, July 11 from 12:30-2:00. The service will be held in the Chapel, Sunday, July 11, at 2 P.M. A reception follows, and interment at United Cemeteries, Carleton Place. In lieu of flowers, donations to Samaritan's Purse (800-663-6500) would be appreciated. The Ottawa Citizen
