Early on Friday, January 27, 2017, our dear friend and comrade Glen Wesley Brown passed away after a battle with liver disease. Glen passed away peacefully in the company and care of friends.
Glen had a huge impact on many people in both his personal and professional life. He was a tireless social justice activist, a central figure in the fight against HIV in Canada and a founding member of AIDS Action Now! More recently he became a prominent environmental leader through his work with Greenpeace Canada. In his professional life, Glen helped many social justice organizations communicate better, work more effectively, and have more impact.
Glen was an extraordinary and generous friend who was surrounded by people who loved and respected him. He made a huge impact on the world and did it for all the right reasons. He was deeply loved by his family, including his brother Keith, sister-in-law Rosemarie, brother Larry, sister-in-law Tricia, and sister Marjorie.
There will be a small private service followed later in the year by a community memorial and celebration of Glen’s life and work later in the year.
Glen will be profoundly missed by everyone who knew and loved him.
