Celebrating the life of

Gary Lee Brewer

July 31, 1938 - February 23, 2021

Gary Lee Brewer

Mr. Gary Lee Brewer, age 82, passed away February 23, 2021. Gary was born July 31, 1938 in Los Angeles, California. He graduated with a degree in Industrial Engineering from Stanford University in 1960 and was in the U. S. Marine Corps from 1960 until his discharge as a Captain in 1963. He attended UCLA graduate school for a master’s in business administration from 1963 to 1965, and then joined IBM where he worked, including a six-and-a-half-year stint in Tokyo, for more than 30 years. After retirement he continued consulting for IBM for another 20 years. Before living at The Landings, he and his family enjoyed water and snow skiing while living in Southern California. He was a self-taught avid golfer, and with his beloved Joey, loved playing bridge with friends. He also loved traveling, especially enjoying cruises throughout the world. He was an involved member of Kiwanis for many years. His accomplishments, as varied and numerous as they were, could not hide his greatest achievements: an incredibly devoted and loving husband. He and Joey did absolutely everything together during their 61 years of marriage. He was a great role model to his three sons and four grandchildren, and the warmest and most generous and loyal pal to his legion of friends. From hanging TV sets, to fixing friends’ computers, to answering any and all calls for help, he was always available with a smile and friendly advice. Gary, above all, was a gentleman.

He is survived by his wife, Joey; three sons, Stephen, Chris, and Craig; daughters-in-law, Jerri and Kimberley; and four grandchildren, Caleb, Kyle, Michael, and Sarah.

A private celebration of life service will be held at a later date.

Sending love to Gary's family. He and I collaborated as members of Kiwanis Club of Skidaway, when he diligently prepared monthly attendance reports that I (as club secretary) reported to Kiwanis International. Just one of many, many touch points in his life that made a a behind-the-scenes difference. I am so sorry for your loss and hope your many family memories will be both a comfort and an inspiration to you in the days and years to come.
