Charles Brewer

Charles Brewer 4-1 1Charles Brewer 4-1 2



Charles H. “Pappy,” “Charlie” Brewer, stepped into eternity with his Savior and Lord on Sunday, March 22. 


 He was born in Middletown on
July 29, 1926 and was the son of Charles H. Sr. and Marion Brewer. 


 During World War II, Charlie served in the U.S. Army Air Corps stateside from 1943 to 1945 and in the U.S. Army on Tobago Island from 1945 to 1946. After he was discharged from active service, Charlie served as a civil servant of the U.S. Air Force for 35 years. He especially enjoyed his second career as a Deputy Sheriff in Davis County, where he served the community faithfully for 14 years. 


 Charlie most loved spending time with his family. He also loved encouraging friends at the Ogden Veterans Home and Ogden Rescue Mission.


 Charlie knew that death would bring him into the presence of his Savior, not based on his own merit, but because he trusted in the sacrifice of Christ on his behalf: “By grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God, not of works,” Ephesians 2:8-9.


 He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Velva Brewer; his daughters Bonnie (Court) Longbrook, and Brenda (Dave) Lake; his grandchildren Edward (Elizabeth) Mathias, Melissa (Robert) Alles, Charles (Connie) Mathias, John (Keri) Mathias, and Rebecca (David) Barlow; and his great-grandchildren Kaleb, Skyler, Katelyn, Sydney, Hannah, Anjali, Asha, Elijah, Diya, Lillian, and Marcus.


 A Celebration of Charlie’s life was held Saturday, March 28 at Kaysville Bible Church,  Kaysville, Utah. 


 Interment, with military honors, was held at Kaysville City Cemetery.


 In lieu of flowers, his family requests donations be made to Kaysville Bible Church Missions Fund, P.O. Box 262, Kaysville, Utah, 84037. 


 Services were entrusted to Lindquist’s Layton Mortuary, Layton, Utah.
