Barry is gone but not forgotten

It is with great regret and sadness that we heard of the recent passing of one of Campbell River’s more prominent personalities, Barrie Brown.

Barry was a great supporter of Campbell River and District Food Bank Society. In the mid-90’s, Barry decided we could use a pickup truck to do our daily business, so he donated one, complete with canopy, to us. He added a maintenance contract and a few years later when he realized our truck’s tires were bald, he replaced them.

We still drive that truck bearing his name and sponsorship. We have put hundreds of miles on our Barry Brown truck and even though it is showing its age, it is still an active and integral part of our daily life.

Gone but never forgotten...we remember Barry for his generosity, his spirit and his support.
