Obituary for Robert E. Brewer

ROBERT ELLSWORTH BREWER
June 21, 1930 TO August 9, 2018

Robert (Bob) Brewer, beloved father, grandfather and friend, departed this world peacefully on August 9, 2018 in South Hill, Washington. While we already miss him dearly, we find comfort knowing he is reunited in heaven with his wife of 47 years, Caroline. He will be remembered as a very kind man with a great sense of humor.
Bob attended Lake City Elementary and Clover Park Junior and High School, graduating in 1949. While at Clover Park, Bob excelled in sports, particularly baseball and basketball.
After high school, Bob served in the United States Air Force, where he became an aerial photographer. He was stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany during the Korean War. After four years in the Air Force, Bob returned home and married the love of his life, Caroline, in 1954. He began his civilian career at Alsco Linen Supply, where he spent 32 years and retired as Sales Manager.
Bob had a huge level of respect for those serving and who previously served in the U.S. Armed Forces. He volunteered at the Orting Old Soldiers home for 16 years. He enjoyed socializing with “his guys” as he called the residents. Also, he was a co-founder of the Clover Park Ancient Warriors Breakfast Club. He enjoyed reminiscing with his past classmates and friends.
Bob will be greatly missed by all who knew him, especially his children: Rick Brewer, Steve Brewer and Barb (Dave) Williamson. He also leaves behind 4 grandchildren: Rob, Callie, Scott and CJ. He was preceded in death by his father Arthur Brewer and mother Alice Brewer.
A Celebration of Bob’s life will be held at Fir Lane Funeral Home Chapel on Friday, August 24th at 1:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Orting Old Soldiers Home.
