It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of George William Brown, retired Captain of Canadian Pacific Airlines. Resident of Salt Spring Island, he passed away on October 13th at the age of 79. He will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by May, his wife of 57 years, as well as many family members and friends. There will be a Remembrance Gathering at a future date.
“Oh I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings,
Sunward I’ve climbed and joined
the tumbling mirth of sun-spilt clouds
and done a hundred things.”
(From High Flight)
