Clifford Henry (Kip) Brown

April 2, 1934 - November 8, 2016


Loved and admired by many, Kip Brown was a man of his word. A handshake was a handshake and a promise was a promise. He was born in Stockton-on-Tees England.
Kip was an admired businessman within the community, an integral member of both the Rotary Club of Powell River and Powell River Stroke Recovery Club and a longtime friend to many extraordinary people. Over the years, he and Ruth raised a beautiful family with four children, 11 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, all of whom valued his never-ending supply of Kleenex.

Kip and Ruth always had their little piece of Shangri-La, whether on the sugar beach coast of Maui or up the lake at their float cabin. There was always a place to call home for their many friends and family to share their slice of paradise.

Coming from a long line of entrepreneurs, Kip himself was a businessman at heart, admired and respected by all those who had the pleasure of working with and for him. It didn’t hurt that he always liked to be in charge. This too he instilled in his own family; his love for business, importance of honour and integrity, and deep-rooted control issues. We love and utilize them all with his mentorship and insatiable sense of humour. Above all else, he taught us how to love. His heart was open to all who needed him. His wife Ruth was the love of his life and through all the good memories and hardships, their partnership truly stood the test of time. We are all privileged to have known him, and he will be greatly missed, most of all by his loving wife.

A service will be held in Kip’s honour at Brooks Hall on Saturday, November 19, at 1 pm. A shuttle service will be provided for those who are travelling from the island on the 10:10 am ferry.
