Our Father and Grandfather Edward Seth “Bob” Brewer came into the world on Jan 8, 1933 at Fremont Nebraska. He was number 9 of 11 children. The family could not decide what to name him, so decided to call him baby until they made a decisions. He was called Baby, which graduated to Bobby before they were able to decide on a name. Unfortunately Bobby was 2 years old and everyone had already called him Bobby for so long, it stuck and was downgraded to (Bob) as he grew older.
He quit school in the 9th grade and at the age of 14 became a roofer and at the age of 15 worked on a cattle ranch during the summers in Oregon. He joined the Army at the age of 17 during the Korean War. He received the rank of Sergeant. While in the army stationed in Texas, he met his future wife Thelma Louise Perry. They were later married in the Salt Lake City temple. Grandpa loved and bred thoroughbred horses, and raced them in Nevada and Utah. He was also an accomplished roofer.
He and Thelma had 5 children; 4 girls and one son: Allen, Cathy, Kaye & Karen, and Corrie. He is survived by his son Allen and Cathy. Unfortunately Karen, Corrie and Kaye all died from cancer. Surviving are 13 grandkids, 30 great grandkids, and last but not least, 5 great-great-grandkids.
He also was a dad and a grandpa to his second wife Carole’s children, Kevin, Rochelle, and Heather who she had in a previous marriage, and as a blessing inherited 19 more great grandkids and 1 more on the way.
Grandpa and Grandma Brewer both loved horses and went trail riding often. One of the highlights of their marriage was they went on a 18 month full time mission to the Ft Worth Texas mission living in a motorhome. HAPPY TRAILS GRANDPA, LOVE AND MISS YOU!!
