It is with profound sadness the family announces the passing of Ryan David Brown, 37, of Fort Frances, Ontario. Ryan was born February 22, 1984, to parents David and Debbie Brown of Morley Twp, Ont.

Most days you could find Ryan at home fixing something. If you needed help because something was broken or your car broke down, he’d be there and help you out. Ryan had a love for all things outdoors, he loved hunting with his brothers and sisters and fishing, even if he had to go alone. He was always willing to sit in front of a campfire with family and friends. He had a lot of patience, especially with his hobby of panning for gold. Ryan loves his nieces and nephews. He enjoyed his morning cuddles and night cuddles with his daughter and preparing her breakfast before school. He enjoyed wood working. Ryan had a lot of random knowledge that he could whip out and surprise you with just to make you laugh. Ryan had a love for all music and enjoyed playing video games online with his son Jacob.

Ryan is survived by his partner Carrie Jolicoeur; his children Ella, Hunter, Dominic, and Jacob; his parents David and Debbie Brown; siblings Lindsay (Terry) Martin, Trevor (Karen) Brown, Kelly Brown, Devin Brown, Hillary Brown; grandmother Theresa Cormack; father-in-law Robert Jolicoeur; uncles Dennis Cormack, David (Stephanie) Cormack, Gary (Judy) Brown, Ben (Cathy) Brown, Nelson (Alvina) Brown, Eddie (Corey) Brown, Vernon Brown, Bradley (Patti) Brown; and numerous nieces and nephews and cousins.

Ryan was predeceased by his grandparents Henry and Edna Brown and David Cormack
