Jack Brewer

Jack Brewer of Lepanto, AR was born June 13, 1931 to Henry Ervin Brewer and O’Dell Moore Brewer in Hatcher, AR.  He passed peacefully into Heaven at Three Rivers Healthcare & Rehab in Marked Tree, AR on March 5, 2020 from Lewy Body Dementia.

Jack graduated from Marked Tree High School and played football for the Marked Tree Indians making many memorable plays during his career.

He was a proud member of the United States Marine Corp and later the United States Army.  He belonged to the Willie Lamb Post #26 of the VFW in Lepanto, AR.

He had a love for sports.  You could always find him cheering on any   Razorback sport, especially football.  In his eyes the St. Louis Cardinals were the best baseball team in the league.  It was not unusual to walk in his house on a Sunday afternoon and find him sitting in front of the TV watching golf even though, as far as it’s known, he never even held a golf club.

He served as a Boy Scout leader, on the Lepanto Fire Department, and served as announcer and score keeper for Lepanto Panther football.

Jack worked for Arkansas Power & Light for 39 years as a meter reader. After retirement he spent many hours working in his yard taking care of his many flower beds with some of the most beautiful flowers.  He raised a garden until he was no longer able to care for it providing friends and family with many tomatoes, peppers, and okra.

He was a Christian and a member of First Baptist Church of Lepanto where he served as a Sunday School teacher.

He was preceded in death by his parents, 4 brothers and 6 sisters.

He is survived by his wife and high school sweetheart of 68 years Mary Hendon Brewer of Lepanto, AR

He leaves a son Mike Brewer (Patty) of Jonesboro, AR and a daughter, Angela Poskey (Eddie) of Lepanto, AR, 2 grandsons Robert Brewer of Cape Coral, FL and John Brewer  of Trumann , AR, 2 granddaughters, Stephanie Jernigan of Brookland, AR and Lashandra Dickens of Harrisburg, AR 4 great grandsons, Austin and Aiden Jernigan, John Michael and Silas Brewer, and 3 great granddaughters, Brianna and Ashlyn Dickens and Jaida Ragland.   He is also survived by two sisters Joan Thompson of Marked Tree and Mary Elizabeth Ball of Bruce, MS.  He leaves numerous nephews and nieces.

We would like to thank the employees of Legacy Hospice, East Arkansas Area on Aging, and   Three Rivers Healthcare for the love, caring, and kindness they showed to him and our family.

Funeral service will be held Monday, March 9, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at Delancey-Murphy Funeral Home in Lepanto.

The family will receive friends from 1:00p.m. until service time.

Interment will follow at Potter Memorial Cemetery in Lepanto.

Memorials can made in his name to The Lewy Body Dementia Association, 912 Killian Rd SW, Lilburn, GA 30047 or Arkansas Children’s Home, 5515 Walcott Rd, Paragould, AR

Deepest sympathy for your loss to all of the Jack Brewer family. My father, Howard Moore, was a brother to Odelle Brewer. We were all raised on a farm on the Northern Ohio township. Our family moved to California in 1950. Jack was a passenger in the car that drove us there along with Jesse McCreary & Robert Moore. I have many good memories of Jack all of the Brewer family. Jack was a good man and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
