John enjoyed spending time reading and studying his bible, and talking to others about the love of Jesus Christ. John was a member of the Volunteer Fire Department in Palacios for 33+ years which he also served as Fire Chief. John was very instrumental in getting retirement in place for the Volunteer Fire Department. John and his family lived in the Palacios area for over 50 years, he moved to the Victoria area about a year ago. He was a long time member of First Baptist Church Palacios and most recently Northside Baptist in Victoria. John was preceded in death by his parents, G. C. and Marie Brewer; five siblings; daughter-in-law, Marty Wootan, and his wife, Dorothy Brewer.

John was a special man who I was fortunate to share some time with on the golf course. It was always great to be in his presence.
A true christian gentleman.
