Billy Brewer Obituary

The love, the intelligence, the charisma, the charm, the power that was Billy (William) Brewer. He was a loving father, a loving grandfather, a loving uncle, a loving cousin, and a loving friend. He was born June 20, 1961, to Juliah B. and Deck Brewer, both of whom have transitioned this prior to him. He was the eldest of 18 children from his mother. There were many siblings that preceded him. He has gone to join them along with his sister from this union (Sherlie Brewer Manuel) and from his dad (Norma Jean Brewer, Gloria Hairl, Doloris Brewer). Today we are not here to celebrate the transition of Billy (William) Brewer, but the life of Billy (William) Brewer.

He accepted our Lord and Savior (Yeshua) at an early age. He was a very spiritual man. To those who knew him, he wore many hats including that of a counselor. He was not a jack of all trades but a (William) of all trades. You could literally call him a man who knew his way around life because he lived it to the fullest. He intertwined with every ethnicity. He was always traveling and learning throughout his life. He has traveled to every state in the US with the exception of Alaska because it was too cold. Wherever he went he made friends and lived with them, learning of their cultures. From the indigenous people (Native Americans) to the Jamaicans. Jamaica wound up being his settled love.

Billy (William) lived with the Jamaicans for a number of years and his Jamaican accent was so strong that he almost got deported. He always wanted to go back and live out his days there… but he is there in spirit. He was not one to let setbacks determine his life or his future. He lost both of his legs in a terrible accident in 1999 and almost departed this life 5 times while in the hospital, but our Father in heaven was not ready for him at that time. He was blessed to live a full life and he still traveled all over the country in spite of everything.

Billy (William) was a chef and could cook anything that was presented to him. He learned how to work on his own vehicles because he would drive them till the brakes fell off. He was always reading books so that he could gain knowledge. He was a very intelligent man, and you could tell this by us conversation. He started reading books at a very young age and always stressed how important it was. He would always say that…that is where all of the information is. He demanded respect and was a man of great wisdom. To know him is to love him. He had a smile so beautiful that it could brighten any room.

He has left to cherish his loving memory, daughter; Twana Ali, and his granddaughter; Benita, his sisters; and brothers-in-laws from his mother; Brenda Lee, Tanya Clemons, Celestine (Mike) Tucker, Deborah (Derrick) Smith. Brothers and sisters from his father, and a host of nieces and nephews and cousins.

We love you brother, father, grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend. You will never be forgotten.
