Commissionaires BC Charlie Brown Memorial Bursary Fund

Charles Monteith "Charlie" BrownCommissionaires BC are honouring the spirit and the legacy of their longest serving Commissionaire Charles Monteith "Charlie" Brown by creating a bursary program in his memory.

Charlie served the BC Corps of Commissionaires with honour and pride more than 45 years, retiring at the age of 83. He passed away peacefully on November 3, 2008 at the age of 87.

Included in Charlie's service with the Commissionaires was a 25-year stint providing security duty at HMCS DISCOVERY on Dead Man's Island, Vancouver. Charlie was a proud man: proud of his Royal Canadian Navy service during the Second World War; proud of being a Commissionaire; and proud to wear his uniform while servicing the public.
