What a life!

Stayed at his place a couple times....one of the most interesting people I've ever met (and I mean that in a good way).

Wow, what a loss! He had one hell of a run, though- 94 years of life packed with adventure. I spent some time with him up at Colville Lake on time off from Norman Wells. I thought I knew the North, but Father Brown was an encyclopedia. I remember looking at my watch one evening fishing with him to be shocked it was three in the morning! Threw all the fish to the sled-dogs on our way to bed. Still look at the painting I have of his over my fireplace, and the scene drops my skin temperature 5 degrees! RIP.
