Henry was born on February 18, 1942 in Bryan, Texas to H.C. and Betty Brewer. Henry was the type of person Texas Tall Tales are written about. He was a true Texas gentleman. His core values were faith in Jesus Christ, family always came first, character, integrity, and loyalty.
Henry's friendships span his entire life. When Henry called you ‘friend’ it was forever. He had an over-flowing sense of humor and captivating smile. Henry would greet you with a big hug and a hearty pat on the back,
Henry was an outstanding athlete. He excelled at every sport he played. A few of his accomplishments include raising a prize winning Holstein cow, taking his team to a State win as a baseball pitcher, he was a record-setting football fullback and punter, a rodeo cowboy, and avid golfer.
Our hearts are broken but we find comfort knowing that the master carpenter was there to greet our husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend, with open arms.
Henry is preceded in death by his parents H.C. and Betty.
He is survived by his wife, Celeste Brewer of 16 years; son, Scott Brewer and wife Kim; daughter, Kimberly Senn; son, Michael Ivey and wife Suzie; brother, Charlie Brewer and wife Ester; brother, Malcolm Brewer and wife Beverly; brother, Jerry Brewer and wife Beth; sister, Rosie Moncrief and husband Mike; grandchildren, Dakota, Dodger, Delaney, Avery, Brenden and Lauren, and many nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Henry’s honor to the Wounded Warrior Project.
