Wayne Brewster Obituary
Wayne Brewster
1916 ~ 2013
Our Dad, Wayne Withers Brewster, was a kind man with a gentle soul. He died on May 5, just three months before his 97th birthday (July 30). He outlived most of his friends. Dad was part of the Greatest Generation who served his country as a Marine medic in World War II in the Pacific Theatre. He was a high school biology teacher until he retired in 1978 to his new job as an avid golfer. He happily spent many years on many golf courses with family and friends. Dad was a spiritual man who cherished his membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In his ninety's, he proudly served as a greeter in his ward's sacrament meetings.
Dad is survived by his devoted wife, Ethel, who spent hours with him most days when he required care outside their home. When asked why she went so often, she simply stated, "This is what I want to do." On May 21st, they would have celebrated 72 years of marriage. Dad is also survived by us, his three children, Jed, Claudia O'Brien and Diane Brewster-Norman; two sons-in-law, Liam O'Brien and Michael Norman; siblings, Elaine Niederhauser and Jack Brewster; two granddaughters, Jayme Gabaldon and Heidi Ransdell; five great grandchildren. His grandson, Chris Thomas preceded him in death two years ago.
Our deepest thanks to Hazen Care Center and Deseret Care for the loving support they provided to Dad and our family.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at Goff Mortuary, 8090 S. State Street, Midvale. Friends may call one hour prior to the services. Interment, Mountain View Memorial Estates.
