Flight Lieutenant Robert F. Brown
SAC 1931-1935

Flight Lieutenant Robert F. Brown attended St. Andrew's College from 1931 to 1935. Robert then attended McGill University until 1939 when he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force Auxiliary.

He was discharged in 1945 when he headed to The School of Hotel Management at Cornell University. He gained his experience in the industry at the Alpine Inn in the Laurentians and the Mount Royal Hotel in Montreal. In 1950, he purchased a prestigious country inn, Hovey Manor on Lake Massawippi in North Hatley, Quebec. Over the next three decades he built it into one of Canada’s pre-eminent country inns. In 1979 he sold Hovey Manor to the son of a good friend, knowing it would be in good hands and it continues today as a five star resort hotel.

Bob died April 18, 2005, in Kingston, Ontario. He is survived by his wife Audrey, children Carol, Robert, Annie, Debbie and their families.
