Reverend Colin Greville BROWN


Passed away peacefully in his sleep early July 26, 2021, aged 94 years. A life very well-lived with his wife and companion of 65 years, Anne – she will miss him greatly. An exceptional father and father-in-law to Rosemary and Bruce (Nelson), Stephen and Glenda (Christchurch) and Michael and Tania (Nelson). An always interested Grandad to Olivia, Jed, Grace, Lucy and Felix. And a very happy Great-Grandad to Jack, August, and Poppy.

‘Death came with friendly care; The opening bud to heaven conveyed, And bade it blossom there’(Samuel Taylor Coleridge)
