To a lovely kind Uncle who looked out for his family and friends. Lots of fond memories of warm welcomes from Uncle Doug and Aunty Jean. Glad that you are now with Aunty Jean, Grandad Brown and the dogs, to whom you gave such a good and loving home. X

Dougie was a fantastic uncle to me and loved him very much. A cheeky chappy, who always had some time for me.
Loved going on hols in the Isle of Wight, speedway and just seeing him and the family.
I miss his warmth and laugh, but we'll meet again someday!

One of my first proper memories was sitting on your Red motorbike, with the smell of the fuel and the radio on in the back ground in your garage. - Now that's a Summer.

You taught me that life's about having fun, enjoying it (and beer!) and making memories with those you care for the most, whilst not stressing about the little things.

You always selflessly gave up your time to help others and family and give everyone your famous old Dougie Hug (which I miss greatly). Thank you for being one of the best granddad's anyone could ever ask for and thank you for all of the advice/support/memories that you gifted me with I will never forget x

Sending love and best wishes for an amazing send off for Doug. A lovely man and although I didnt see him so much as Jean I will fondly remember the chats we had at times along the way. Lots and lots of love ❤️ xx



Diamond Dougie Brown. I could not have wished for a better grandad. Your passion for motorbikes, your garage full of tools and your never ending love for beer will always cement you as a figure of effortless cool in my upbringing. You softened in your later years and would never shy away from telling us you loved us. I’m incredibly lucky to have spent 32 years of my life in your company, with unforgettable trips to speedway in Eastbourne and Cardiff, memorable parties and celebrations at your houses, and of course many occasions spent around the dining table, laid out with a special nan spread, sat opposite you tucking into a plate of food garnished with your trademark beetroot. You were loving and kind to all in your life, and treated others with fairness. I’m happy that you can now be back with your beloved Jean, as well as Bonnie, Dylan, Bruce, Keith and all those lost who you cherished so deeply. Thank you for being a father to dad, Jackie, Paul and Julie, a husband to nan, a grandad to all of my wonderful cousins, a father-in-law to my mum and a friend to so many. Rest in peace x

Jean Elizabeth Sheehan


To my lovely little mischievious brother who always rang me up if he thought I was lonely when he was able to, bur always remembered who I was when I saw him over the past few years. I was the only person who could remember the things we did together when we werc children. I enjoyed our time together when Steve used to bring you to stay before covid.
I am pleased you are with Jean again.
Lots of love, Jean xxxxx

Doug has always been my favourite Uncle, very fond memories of the get togethers we used to have when we were growing up, Doug (and Jean) were always the life and soul of the party. You will be sadly missed. xxx



Dearest Doug such a lovely man, remembering how he loved his music! Such happy memories of Doug & Jean. So many fun times with the Brown & Stewart family.



Dearest Doug,
You were all that a father-in-law should be , kind, caring, welcoming and made me feel like one of the family from beginning to end even when circumstances changed. I felt just as loved by you. Thank you for everything ❤️
I will love you forever xx



Rest in peace Grandad. Love you. Will miss you lots ❤️xxxxx

Helen Fairbrother


Rest in Peace dear Doug. You always treated me as part of the family and crossed my children's palms with silver when they were little. You had a great sense of humour and a straight talking manner and we miss you. Lots of love Helen and family x x x

Theo Brown


The best great-grandad ever and I was so lucky to have him!! love from Theo xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Stephen Brown


My dad taught me everything I know about life from start to finish. He always had everyones respect and never gave up on our family. He didn't have it easy at all but always had that ability to make people smile when he had a lot of turmoil going on in his life. He always had time for people and liked to put them at ease with a laugh or a joke. We will always remember him. Love you dad xx



To my lovely Grandad, I miss you very much I was so lucky to have you in my life for 34 years! and your relationship with Theo melted my heart love you lots, Victoria xxxx

Julie Brown


Thank you for being such a lovely Dad. You taught us to enjoy life as much as possible, which we’ll continue to do. I miss you so much. Hope you are resting well, back with Mum. All my love, Julie xx
