    May 11, 1945 - October 26, 2011
    Alex Brown

    It is with deep sadness that we, the family of Alex Brown, announce his passing on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2011, at his residence.

    Born in Glace Bay, May 11, 1945, Alex was the son of the late Murray and Margaret 'Maggie' (MacDonald) Brown.

    A dedicated family man, Alex leaves behind his wife, the former 'Cookie' Thomas; and sons, Richard, Calgary, and Murray (Colleen); twin grandsons, James and Neil; sister, Martina (Murray) MacKinnon, Boularderie, C.B.; many nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends.

    Alex worked for a time as a coal miner and for the Glace Bay Water Department. He was also employed with McKinlay's Pop Factory. Growing up in the heart of Caledonia (The Blocks), Alex played a variety of sports, both competitively and recreationally. Starting at the age of seven, he played Little League with the Highland Motor Giants for five years. Alex went on to play midget and juvenile baseball with teams from No. 11. In the mid 1960s, he was top-notch catcher for the Glace Bay Junior softball teams. Alex was a key member of the 1965 Caledonia Aces senior softball team, which won the Nova Scotia Championship, but were edged out by Loggieville, N.B. for the Maritime Title He played with the 1968 Oland's Bay Byes that captured the Maritime Senior Softball Crown. The highlight of Alex's softball career came when he was inducted into the Cape Breton Sport Hall of Fame in 2010 with the 1968 Oland's Bay Byes Softball Team.

    Alex played broomball, billiards, darts and bowled for many years. He enjoyed a good game of cards and horseshoes with friends while sipping back his favourite "cola" beverage. He loved the fellowship and the telling of tall tales at his favourite local coffee shop where he defended his beloved Chicago Blackhawks and Toronto Blue Jays quite vocally.

    Visitation for Alex Brown will be held Sunday, Oct. 30, 2011, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. A funeral mass will be celebrated 11 a.m. Monday at Holy Cross Church, Glace Bay, with Fr. Norman MacPhee officiating. Cremation will follow.

    In lieu of flowers, donations in Alex's memory may be made to Palliative Care or VON.
