North Bay Astronomy Club Celebrates the life of John Brown
We are very saddened by John Brown unexpected passing on August 17, 2014. John was an avid and valued member of the North Bay Astronomy Club for many years. He regularly photocopied interesting Astronomy and Science articles to share with all of us. John was a hard worker and a kind man who worked hard on residential, store, and church yards, cutting grass, shovelling snow, and working in gardens to help so many in the West Ferris neighbourhood. Despite health issues, John walked, worked, and volunteered every single day. He always had time for a coffee at Tim Horton's and the mall where he helped out or enjoyed Astronomy discussions. John Brown, the quiet gentleman, will be missed by so many.
