    I remember Walter fondly from working with him when the Eastern Provincial Airways pilots joined the Canadian Air Line Pilots Association. I found him to be a very dedicated, thoughtful and sincere man with a genuine desire to do the best for the pilots he represented. I was saddened to learn of his passing. Godspeed with Heavenly tailwinds, Walter.

    Barbara and family. So sorry to hear of Walter’s passing. I am one of the Bedford Bridge group and have fond memories of Walter from our “Bridge Nights”. Walter always had great stories to fill in any dull moments. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

    Barb and Family,

    Many of those foggy days landing in St. John’s I was glad that Captain Brown was in the cockpit of the EPA flight. A great pilot and a kind man. I have many good memories.
    God bless.

    So sorry to hear of Walters passing. I always enjoyed working with him and we had some great flights. I had my son in the jump seat as a little guy on one flight that I will always be grateful to Walter for.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    If Gordie Lightfoot had known about Walter Brown – he would not have written “In the Early Morning Rain”
    The line in the lyrics – You can’t jump a jet plane like you can a freight train – didn’t apply to Walter.

    In my 5th year at MUN, I was doing a field placement in Labrador. Student funds were sparse.
    Walter let me hitch-hike the 737 jump seat to get home.
    Walter was the father of the EPA family. Walter was a kind and patient man. We all learned from him. I am grateful to have had the opportunity, many years ago, to work with Walter.

    My sincerest sympathy to all his family.
    May he rest in Peace.

    Barbara and family,
    Unfortunately, I never had the pleasure of working with Walter or meeting his family. I was introduced to Walter by my uncle, Joe Goodyear, who was a good friend and always spoke highly of Walter. After that our paths crossed many times prior to his retirement and I sincerely enjoyed his sense of humour and heart warming stories.

    My deepest sympathies for your loss,
    Sincerely,

    So sorry to hear of Walter,s passing. One of EPA,s finest, was always a sigh of relief in YYR when we were standing by for jump seat and found out Walter was the skipper. We knew then that aircraft was not departing with any seats unoccupied. Take care during this difficult time. Denis and Nellie Lush

We especially appreciated the time you, Barb and Walter spent with our Mom and Dad. It was always a great time when the four of you got together. Walter was a great man with lots of interesting stories we enjoyed listening to. He will be missed by all. Our hearts and thoughts are with you all. Tom and I were hoping to make it to the funeral but with the weather both in Halifax and St. John’s coming, I don’t think we’ll make it unfortunately. We may try and make it over at a later date.

      The Brown Family:
      It is with great sadness to learn of Captain Brown’s passing. I was relatively a “new hire” at EPA when I met Walter. I never had the pleasure of flying side by side with our senior Captain. He will forever be remembered as a professional pilot and fine human being, for he exemplified the true meaning of team leader and a man of integrity during our dark days at that airline. He always chose what was “right”. Men like Walter solidified my chances of moving on to larger airlines, with seniority and integrity intact…….for that and much more, I will always remember. God Bless.

Then, in more recent times, it was always so nice to see him again when he made it out to our monthly retired pilots luncheons. My deepest sympathy to Barbara and family…. Sterling Fisher

    Dear Barbara and family
    It is with sadness that Suzanne and I heard about Walter’s passing. Walter was one of the finest pilots i ever worked with and Suzanne will never forget the kindness and respect he always treated his entire crew with. Over an aviation career one meets and works with many individuals and only a few really stand out. Walter was one of those and for all the right reasons. We will never forget Captain Walter (crackey) Brown.
    To Walter I say, Peace Perfect Peace.

Our Mothers were best friends from then on and one way or another I always seemed to be in touch with all of them. I particularly remember Walter from the mid-sixties in Gander when I was at the JPMH and he was with EPA. Please accept my deepest condolences on your great loss.

    So sorry to hear about this. Im just retiring now and realising who some of the more influential pilots were in my career. As a brand new first officer on the 737 I was pretty nervous and well remember the gentle encouragement I got from Walter. Being on reserve you never knew who you would be paired with and it was always a relief when you found out it would be Walter! Would have liked to have thanked him personally but perhaps the family will accept my gratitude on his behalf.

From the days of many cargo flights into Goose Bay to his passenger flights around the EPA routes it was always a pleasure to see Walter step out of the cockpit. A true gentleman admired by all,a man who would leave a lot of today’s pilots in awe of his flying skills intertwined with his social interaction with people. A true professional and gentleman, Rest in Peace Walter.

    My sincere condolences to all of you in Walters’ passing. I flew with him often and he was such a gentleman, professional, and great pilot in command. He was the only person I ever knew to smoke a pipe. Your photo choice was perfect. Blessings for strength and comfort for you all.

    On behalf of my family, please accept ur sincere condolences regarding Walter’s passing.

    My dad, was a refueller at the Deer Lake airport in newfoundland from the beginning of the airport. He always mentioned Walter and what a great man he was. My dad passed away in August of last year but I always recall how fondly he spoke of Walter.

    May you receive the strenght to endure your loss.
