It is with sadness that the family of Ron Brown announces his sudden passing on December 4, 2020, one day after his 69th birthday. Ron was born on December 3,1951 in Kamsack, SK to parents Ann (Kuzyk) and Hart Brown.
Ron attended school in Kamsack. As a teenager, he began training to ride bareback horses.
He soon became involved in the rodeo circuit, eventually switching to bull riding. He worked in Kamsack as a house painter and spent his summer weekends participating in rodeos all over Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Ron loved the “Cowboy” life and that led him to Alberta. His first job was in Banff, giving trail rides for tourists. His next job involved living in the Foothills breaking horses. After completing a course as a certified Farrier, Ron moved to Swan River, Manitoba. He lived in Manitoba for several years, working as a Farrier, before moving back to Kamsack. He continued his Farrier service until his health began to fail. He was also employed part time by the Town of Kamsack for the past ten years. Ron was a talented artist and started painting pictures during the winter months. He was very particular and often took several months to complete a painting. He sold several and the family is fortunate to have three of his remaining paintings to treasure.
Ron loved his two “pals”: Dixie, a Border Collie, who was his faithful companion for eleven years and Buddy, his beautiful twenty year old horse. They were an important part of his daily life. A special thanks goes to Carl and Janey Vanin for “adopting” Buddy.
Ron was predeceased by his parents Ann and Hart Brown, his grandparents: Peter and Doris Kuzyk and Miles and Susan Brown. He is survived by his younger brother Brian (Judy) of Regina, SK, sister Gerry Harrison (Bill) of Yorkton, SK, nieces Kim Harrison (Mike Devenyi) of Saskatoon, SK, Audra Husbands (Carter Husbands) and nephew Torin Husbands of Brandon, MB.
Due to CoVid-19 restrictions, a memorial service will be held at a later date.
